    ~~Offical FPVLab Hall of Shame~~

    Thought I would make a tread where we can all share our most embarrassing mishaps with RC planes.

    Do you have something worthy of the Hall of Shame? Post it and let us see.

    I will go first. Took my corsair out this morning. Had a mishap with the motor mount, strait nose plant from like 30 feet up. Well you guys can see the end result below.

    How bad do you feel that you start a wall of shame, and you're the only one in it? Everyone flying their planes around... you... with your broken plane, forced to fly around your champ while you wait for the glue to set...

    You didn't have to run out and crash your plane today just to make Dozer feel better...

    Hmm, my 1st plane flown FPV was a PZ Corsair. Had a few good flights but it was retired from FPV after this.... (It was however repaired for normal flying and still lives today). Notice the prop was completely buried in the soft dirt. The cowl was obliterated, the wings snapped.

    Typical newbie mistake... got in the air and lost orientation. Looking for home I was going the wrong way and lost LOS over a hill and tree line. Crashed in a pasture.

    Also the Stryker kinda bit the dust this weekend due to a weird LRS glitch. It is repairable, but for $20 it can be new again, so...

    The nose is crumpled... In the upper right lays the motor, and on the ground all the gear that ejected. Luckily the battery wasnt damaged and unplugged itself. Smart feller.
