R/C P-38 and hard landings

so a friend is trying desperately to get me into R/C airplanes. So he surprised me with a Flyzone P-38. It is a micro plane, 4oz tops.

Well I am not a particularly good pilot. Two flights, two crashes.

First flight ended in a nose dive. Broke the nose right off. Fortunately, the nose protected the props. The fix was pretty easy. Good as new.

Second flight. Much better. I even controlled it in heavy winds. Unfortunately, I can't tell whether it is coming or going, and I flew it imto an oak tree. I ripped the tail off trying to get it down.

I am gluing it back now. Maybe a 3rd flight this week. 3rd time's the charm, right?
