You must be at an Oasis !!! :-)

I was walking my dog at a local park when I noticed a model upside down in the middle of the lake. Every once in awhile the motor would sputter and the plane would move forward a bit - no one was around. Eventually found the owner who was on the other side of a hill when he lost the plane. He was able to get the model to the opposite shore by cycling the throttle between off and full, which gave him about 3-4 seconds of thrust. I ran home and grabbed an RC boat that I used to help push it in. It was a built-up balsa/ply model and it was slowly sinking - probably had a gallon of water in the fuselage when he fished it out. Fun times.
