Radian Crash - Flying through the fog

I knew this wasn't a great idea to fly though fog but we went ahead anyway. The fog was lifting so I decided to go up a little higher which was my second mistake. I decided to make a circle out to get a shot of my Dad's house, third mistake with the wind. Then a cloud flew in between us and that's the last we saw of the plane. I pushed down to see if I could get it out of the cloud, and then tried giving it a little power to see if I could hear where the plane was. Looking at the video, that was another mistake.

A replacement plane has been purchased and we are trying to see if this one will actually go back together with some epoxy. I can't say enough about the GoPro. We are guessing it was doing somewhere around 100mph when it hit and it didn't miss a single frame!
