Went to show my buddies at the club field my new skills ( we were all trying to learn on our own).

Not having ever taken off of the ground I did what I was comfortable doing - ran a few steps & hand launched!

Only trouble was, I tripped, throwing the transmitter & knocking off my glasses!

Scrambled around, got glasses & transmitter, stood up & took control just in time to save the plane from impailing itself on the barb wire fence!

Didn't hear the end of that one for a long long time!

Did the range check in the air obviously!
Priceless story Redneck!
I hate it when coffee comes out my nose!
Ditto!! Laughing to myself as I imagined OPRN's story unfold while I read it...LOL (Did somebody get that on video?? )

Re: Ever drop your TX?

I know that old guy. He has been flying so long, they didn't have videos back then. But I can picture him face down scrambling for his glasses, JUMP up and adjust his suspenders! No butt!, all brains top heavy. Merv I will see you on the 16th at the name the donkey fun-fly
