That Pup crash looked like he had a couple of problems. Didn't see him test the engine in the vertical position, pre -flight, as we were taught to see it it would stall out. It did.

Secondly it flew like it was very tail heavy. Kept dropping the tail and was too snappy in the air. Bummer.

Anywho, my latest beast. TheSkyHunter, 71" ws. Little hard to get a good shot of the lights, the NAV lamps are 3 sets of strobes on each wing and 2 on the H stab, front has a 20 LED gang lamp. Camera can't quite handle it.

Running a 480/1020kv motor on 4s, with a 9x5 prop, Orange rx stabilizer, Castle bec and 60 amp esc.

Went with a Killer Whale/Air Force drone look for it.

if it ever stops raining down here I'll get some in air shots.

I have no direct experience with gassers, but I sure have seen a lot of issues with them over the years.

In other news, this was pretty funny and sad all at once!

That's one of those DOH! moments! Ive buried a prop or two on takeoff. A wee bit embarrassing.

LOL we have all had that happen, but it is still funny to watch someone else do it!
