Crash maiden! I lost track of it during landing. So far, I still can't find it. Think it was in the water. Total loss...

Sorry michael. I seemed to fly well until the end. I figured the dip was just being out of trim...releasing back-pressure? It looked like a real gentle tip stall... then it was just locked in a death spiral with no change. It looked like a loss of signal/lock-out. It is weird the stall never exagerated or there was little attitude change. Usually the reaction is to go opposite aileron and full up (which is not correct stall recovery but it is what people often do)

Michael...what were you using for a receiver (Brand).

Thank you guys! It was under my control. In order to slow down the speed, I tried to fly far more during landing. But the white wings made me difficult to identify its flying position. What I did at that moment was pull down the throttle in order not to get into the river. Below it's the video recorded by a friend next to me. You will know what I saw from my viewpoint. It's totally a pilot's mistake, not the receiver or elevator problem. Fortunately, I found it today. All the electronics still work. Another picture shows the location, which is around 300 meters away from me.

Glad you found it! Looks like a new airframe is in order.

Been looking at this F-20 looks good but so did the sniper xl ,Witch i had one of the first and the elevator ripped out on first maiden and was proved that it had no wood in the elevator for the hinges to grip to. Everyone on SUPER SNIPER XL thread had the same problem they put theirs right but HET RC wouldn't do anything about it even though it was a fault with the plane

Thats why im abit reluctant buying anything off HET RC because the way they dealt with this after service was rubbish
