Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.
21 Aug 2019 18:14:54
Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Hi guys, well took my quad out for the fourth time yesterday and had my first crash. All down to headfree mode I think! Anyway, I decided the forums make the hobby (or is it a sport?) out to be easier than it really is and everyone always likes a photo of a good crash! Okay, mine isn';t a right off (luckily!) and I';m  sure you have more spectacular ones! We need more photos of spectacular crashes! ;o) A wise man told me once (we fly, therefore we crash) and another one of his favorite sayings was (there are two types of aircrafts, ones that have crashed and ones that haven';t crashed yet!). Take pride in your crashes, learn from them and smile! ;o) Stef
Always smile because you never know who could be falling in love with it. :) Drone Operator in North Wales. www.aerialworx.co.uk


Never mind; doesn';t look too bad - all part of the hobby; it was a wise man who told you that stuff. One of my favs is ';If you don';t crash you';re not trying hard enough'; ;-)
Yours lokks a bit like mine did after learning topiary :-)))
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


Well the wise old men on here say "buy plenty of props you will need them", there';s the proof.

Looks easy to resolve, hope theres no other damage.

What did you hit,  a tree or try to bury it.

Speaking of topiary Darrell, my first ever flight took it horizontal into a bush on take off, berries all over the place, missus calls the spider "automated shears" now.


Well Steff first crash with a quad and definately not your last,if your not crashing your not trying,not to bad Steff,look';s like only prop';s,your';s,Marty.


Another quote i heard whilst learning:

"Flying is the small amount of time you spend in-between fixing it."

I crashed two yesterday! My learner sport where I try all sorts of things to see if they will ';work'; (I lost a prop in mid air) - I then switched to my fpv and hit some branches which broke my wooden propellers!

No pics though!




It happens to us all Stef..    you have some good flights.. you get cocky.. and gravity brings you back down :-)

I hit a tree today, was pretty windy, but the tree caught it nicely then it rolled all the way down through the branches and landed right way up, woot.  Much better than crashing into roofs lol.  Hope all is good, I';ve just ordered way more spares, think I';m gonna need them, and am now trying to dull my quad down as it';s a fair beast  :evil


Hi Stef, join the club I';ve now spanked mine twice first time two motor';s three props and three arms :whistling: but it didn';t take long to get it back in the air second time was just three prop';s  ~~. I dare say ill spank the TBS when I sort the thing out and it fly';s.

May it get well soon lol ~~
If someone throw's a stone at you throw a flower at them just remember to throw the pot with it.


That';s a fair bit of spanking in there Micky  :rolleyes: you got something to tell us  :whistling:  ~~
