After flying my sportster for a year without even a ding Mother Earth jumped up and smacked it out of the sky!:eek: Well I'll look at it this way- Now I can relax. When you have a plane that you've never hurt it gets to be too much pressure to keep it that way. Now its scarred like the rest of my hanger so it will fly better after its fixed.:o
It was totally pilot error. I was trying to perfect a long, slow, straight roll but I made it too long and came face to face with Mr. Sun.:cool:

I just lost my SS as well. Smeone turned on one of those cheap RTF transmitters, that was on channel 29. I was on 31. It glitched the hell outta my plane and there was nothing I could do. I could only watch helpless as it nosed into the ground. There will be no reapairs for this one.:(
