Are you sure your plane is ready to fly!!!

A few weeks back on a beautiful Sunday afternoon the weather was perfect for flying. It was warm and sunny with a slight breeze blowing south, straight up the runway. And on this beautiful Sunday we had five airplane crashes. A body bag was all that was needed on three of them. We can never take all of the potential human error out of flying but we can minimize the mechanical failures if we take that extra 5 minutes to inspect our planes before we take off. As we start this new flying season, please check everything on the plane. Especially if it has been setting in your hanger over the winter. There are hundreds of moving parts, screws & nuts, critical glue joints, electrical connections and settings on an RC plane and all it takes is one failure at the wrong place and the wrong time and that’s the end of a fun day of flying. Secondly, check your batteries. Make sure they will hold a full charge and test them while under a load. Do not hesitate to ask someone for help. A second set of eyes has saved many RC airplanes from crashing. Play it safe and have fun.
