OK, I saw a thread once, somewhere, where the question was posed, "What do you say to your friend who just crashed his favorite airplane?"

There were many great replies, but the one that I remember was, "Man! I saw dust fly out of your transmitter when your plane hit the ground!" :eek:

Has anyone got any words of sympathy to offer to friends that just crashed their favorite plane?

If he's a good friend you could always try the old "damm, did you see the size of the CB antenna on that car that just went by?

Yeah I got another one the next day and painted it up just like the other one but no retracts on this one. Oh yeah, what I learned was, Don't show off your flying skills when the wind is blowing 20+mph with strong gusts you might not be able to pull up from a dive.....:(

Totally deadpan from Dialed/Chuck:

"Bill, the idea behind landing is to be able to fly the plane again."

My personal favorite:

"Is that called a Figure 9?"

My buddy really enjoys flying low and doing loops at low altitude... he's done a few of those.

So, whats wrong with that? It really slows down the set time so you can make adjustments....:roll:;-)
