dumb ass crashes

Well I took the prize this year for last crash of the season. Took my Neptune Amphibian up from the snow. Not a bad take off then wham-o lost control of the elevator for some reason. Passed the box to a buddy as I knew I was waist deep and the sucker plowed into the cornfield at full throttle nose first. Impressive debris field if I do say so myself.
Turns out the cold and imported Nylon connectors are not a good combo. The rod broke right where it enters the fuse giving me no elevator control.
Well it was a pretty plane!

If ya deadstick three times just stomp on it...It's an easier death!
