My RC Plane hobby began when I was a kid and my Dad bought me a radio control glider. I crashed it on the first flight. We repaired it and I crashed it again and again. Then he bought me a motorized plane, which I learned how to fly a bit better. Fast forward to many years later, when I wandered into a hobby store in Ypsilanti with Skyler and bought a new one, so we could fly planes together.
Writing this as I have way too many photos of various RC plane crashes over the years. Most of this was flying with Skyler, but I’ve crashed almost every time I’ve flown. I figured out that I get more joy out of fixing the broken planes than actually flying them. The whole flying part is too nerve-wracking for me. Here are some fun post-crash photos I’ve kept.
