Any number of things could have happened I guess. Maybe something like the antenna got moved to the wrong angle or the rx power wire got jostled during a hard maneuver. I was never shy about tossing it about at full tilt boogie (which was rather quicker than stock), Could be that the BEC died? I don't feel too terrible about it. Although there was alot of sweat and tears put into that setup, I only lost maybe $40 in hardware max, and the airframe had seen MUCH better days. There was probably enough epoxy and contact cement on it to build a few more planes. I taught myself how to fly on that plane, and everything I ever learned how to do as far as mods and setup was done first on that one. My return on investment, experience and fun wise is outstanding.

Plus, now I get to buy a new plane!
