Jeff,
I bet that changed from a Spin into a Spiral Dive. In a Spin the Wing is Stalled and you can't build up that many G's. If the Spin Rate rapidly increased then the wing developed lift again and it likely tightened up with each revolution that's when thru g's will build and you break planes.

Foamy.. multiplex Rockstar.. very well powered..

Full power to vertical.. then both sticks up to the outside corners..

She twisted around like a cork screw on the end of a jack hammer while still climbing..

leveled out to a nice right hand turn , then a slow left to come back into the circuit..

That is when the top wing came of , followed shortly by the lower right wing and the left was broke off but got dragged down by the wires attaching it to the fuselage..

Repaired the lower wing and milled out a channel with the cnc machine and installed a tube in the lower wing.

Repair the rest .. and two weeks later I went out and tried the same stunt again..

This time she came home..

You should see me do a knife edge " U " turn with that old goldberg ultimate at 200 kph

I don't know why the wings are still on it..

-Depending on how long you've been flying I would recommend buying aircraft that you can afford to replace. Atleast until you become very comfortable with your abilities.

-Give your self enough altitude to make mistakes.

-Try not to think of crashing while you are flying and focus just on the flying.

-Stay 2-3 steps ahead of your aircraft. Knowing where you need to go before you get there. This will hopefully reduce the chances of getting tangled up in your own flying try not to let the plane get away from you.

-If you do crash, try and have another flight as soon as possible afterwards if possible (with another plane of course). I've seen a few people crash and then dwell on it for weeks and can cause a bit more anxiety on future flights.

I'm sure I have more tips but these are some important ones.

good luck!
