We sure did and not a single incident. The following day I went to another club field, there were a hand full of flyers there, three planes went it in a matter of four hours. A ducted fan foam jet went in and put a 30 degree bend in the 5000 ma lipo, didn't catch fire though, apparently the pilot tip stalled the plane at the bottom of a steep dive. A foam Piper Cub lost control and went straight in, was equipped with Spektrum SAFE system (Not very SAFE?), and finally a control line flier managed a find a 8' spruce tree 180 degrees from takeoff, that brought out some laughs for sure.
