Whoops!
The first fly in 2015, crash ended. LOL

Ummmmmmm... I promise I could fix it.

I find that it is rare that the FPV runs into a lamp post, because you get a wide view. But it risks if you only watch the monitor when it is landing. It is hard to get fast response even you have OSD, unless you are a skillful one. It is easily crashed into a lamp post without FPV, not knowing how far to the post, but it's easy to land.

Seeing as how theirs two of them I'm guessing the white plane ran up the tail feathers of the red plane and got it's nose chopped off by the red planes prop while also damaging it's wing.

I've yet to fly in 2015, let alone fpv

The red aircraft ran into a lamp post and the white one had an air crash. Oh, what a pity. Busy working?

Dang lamp posts, we have those too!

I altually have myself on video in 2008 hitting a lamp post.
It was back with my first ever rc plane and I remember the light swinging with my wrecked plane laying on the ground still.

ive had a few crashes. luckily repairs have simply been props.
causes include:
chasing bunnies FPV
trying to see how small of a whole i can go through FPV
misjudging landings FPV
random cutout FPV

come to think of it, i can blame all crashes on FPV.
