it's not really a crash until you come home with many more parts than you took to the field

Bad news flying today. Took off
And flew well and made several circuits. Starting to line up for a low pass and lost all control of plane. Happened before and I changed receiver. Happened this time same way so it had to be my HK ESC or BEC. Motor was running but no input controls at all. Only abt twenty feet altitude so no room to recover and straight in on nose and broke into too many pieces. Time for another panther order! ...and Time to chunk that esc/bec combo!!!
