Holy crap, I never would have guessed that one.

Silly pilots flying near power lines.

Just a heads up that I will be listing for sale my oldest Stream here shortly. Well "seasoned" but flies great. Just need to get a fresh one for me. Can't promise that it will be powerline proof though

In a competition setting, anything goes. Although this one was during warmup time just before the morning pilots meeting on day 1. I heard, felt, saw, and smelled it; in that order. Big badda boom! Carbon is a great conductor. Shocking way to lose a nice plane... Sorry, Darwin.

IT is a good thing that the two fried DLG's I know of didn't cause a major power outage. I guess they are like eagles? But it might be good for our RC image if contests were held away from power lines.. ?? Although the line at BSOUT must have been 400- 500 yards away.
