Default almost took out the wife once

I had a walkera fixed pitch heli for a while back in 2005. Wanted to upgrade but didn't have the cash to afford a Trex. I bought a RTF walkera CP heli. I was new and took RTF at its meaning. I expected it to be setup and ready to go. I plugged it in the first time and quickly discovered that the throttle and pitch channels were reversed. The heli went full power and full positive pitch flew across the room and hit the wall about 3 feet from where the wife was sitting. I waited 6 years before I got my Trex and she still does not like watching me fly.
