    Here is one of my own CRUNCH moments and it was truly a lawn dart when it went in. #kwj48 can attest to that as he was standing next to me when it happened. Had just installed a new elevator swervo and was retrimming the plane when it just pointed straight down and would not respond. Thought I had lost the brand new servo but upon inspection kwj48 and I found that I had a crap servo extension on the elevator. Got it fixed back up though and still flying it.
     
  2. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] It didn't look too bad at first but the only thing holding the motor box on was the covering. Broke right through the anti rotation pin holes and a previous break. Good thing I had a spare new in the box hiding behind curtain #2.

    Here is one I lost to a battery failure a couple years back. Thankfully the Smart Fly worked as it should and turned off the engine at the time the batteries failed. It sure did hit hard.

    Well, no that was only 2/3rds of it. One third was cut off in one of the wings.

    Here is one of the few that I have had. It hurt extra bad because it was not mine but a 12 year boys. Crash do to a equalizer failure on the elevators. To make it worse the young man had only the maiden flight and it went in on the second flight with me at the sticks. :sorrow: Even though it was nothing I could help, I never felt so bad in my life.
