Smashed the cessna into the ground today. The balloon tires were good and it still flew with them, but for some reason my radio caused it to lose control and go into a spin that I couldn't recover from and smashed it into the ground from about 100 feet up. Need to figure out the radio thing before I fly again. I can't afford to lose a plane each time I fly. I might just put the money into a decent radio after all.
I think I will buy a kit of some kind and put the electronics into the new one.
