    Sorry for the haze but it was early in the morning.

    I knew it would be a matter of time but I finally crashed. Luckily it occurred while I was coming in for a low level fly-by and I forgot to pull up on the throttle. I'm so glad I crashed on soft grass, so that eased the impact.

    All I ended up with was a bent propeller. Now that's an easy fix. I've tested everything and I've already put her back in the air. Now to get my nerve back to fly her around aggressively again. LOL!!!

    If you're gonna crash, that's the kind to have.
