The problem happened when the plane was about 50 yards away, and it kept going until it crashed into a house about 300 yards away. Altitude was constant at about 10 feet. Can I be sure if the problem is in the transmitter or in the receiver?

I fly a scratch built scale Brewster Buffalo running off a brushless motor and a lipoly battery. It has a GWS 6 channel receiver, and an old Hitec Focus 6 transmitter, and has been in use for the last year with this equipment without any problems.

I am very spooked about this...

Did you do a range check before taking off?
