Careful!
Bixler MID-AIR Collision. (Dont try this!)

When you have friends who fly R/C planes it is always fun to chase each other. (Like we were trying to do) But when you come to close to each other you have a really big chance to hit each other in mid-air which could result in a collision. Worst case scenario both of you lose your planes. But we got lucky

Result:

Remember chasing is fun, but keep some distance!

Wouldn't have known if you didn't say so.

If you want to really avoid a mid-air, try to intentionally hit your friend's plane. Combat is like that.

Now when it comes to, 'We have contact..', this is real contact stuff.

Here's one from the Jet Turbines forum, the thread -

mid air crash mirage 2000 40 pound turbine!!

The 'incident' happens around 3min 45sec in, but the previous part is worth watching just to see a turbine in action. After about 6min 20 sec, it's just wandering around the grass looking for the remains of the other one.

I did manage to extract some stills of the contact, in post #5.

I recently experienced my first nighttime mid-air. No blood-no foul.

Very true!... But there's another part. If you finally do hit the other guy's plane, YOURS is the one that doesn't get to fly again that day - his will be just fine

Yea I got a bit mad at him but when I saw that my plane was still flying I was eager to see what the GoPro filmed.
