Read about this in the newspaper today.
It was a glider, about 2.5m wingspan, around 2kg mass. A gust of wind was blamed for the loss of control.

A tragic accident.
For those of you who understand German:
http://www.stuttgarter-zeitung.de/in...adce20b96.html

A 53 year old man was killed by the RC glider of a 45 year old pilot.
The glider hit the head of the man. He died in hospital. The accident happened last Sunday.

Here http://germanherald.com/news/Germany...197/Head_Winds say the man was hit by a 10 kg model.

and this new http://www.kathrynsreport.com/2012/1...-into-his.html tells a gust of wind made the modeler loss the control...

very sad to read about that..
