Incident Details

January 29, 2012 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:

On take off, I was only about 3 feet into the air when I made a rookie mistake and sat down into my seat way too early, causing me to drop to the ground. I planted my left foot on the ground, and when I did, my knee went to the inside and I heard something pop. I knew I had did some damage to my knee. The only things that were damaged on my motor was my prop hit my gas tank and put a small hole in it. My prop tips were slightly damaged, and a small portion of my netting was also torn.
