A spectacular crash from Friday night.

I stopped in on Friday night for a few minutes and just happened to catch a Skyhunter being thrown up into the air.

I didn't get the actual collision with the ground because I was too focused on watching the plane after it stalled to keep it in the camera's field of view.

It did throw up a puff of foam pieces when it hit, that's for sure. You can see a little of this at 1:23 if you step through frame by frame.

Very nice pics Matt.

My son and I stopped on Saturday to walk and talk. It was pretty cool. Talked to great people and enjoyed ourselves. I will be back next year to fly.

Great event and had a blast. Next time, order up some better weather
Got one good flight in on Saturday with the Big Bird (Sig Kadet). Poked around the sky checking out the area and trying out the cockpit cam.

We need to credit you for the frequency control with magnets. It worked very well!

Next time I plan to actually have a FPV vehicle or two. It was fun watching others on my goggles though and fighting the wind with my 200QX.

Awesome!
I have been asked to bring my freq. board to HHAEFI so it must be a hit.... (we also used it at SEFF)
I will provide mylar to laminate the cards in the event of a little rain.

I would also encourage people to make up their own magnetic business card piece for the frequency board that will last for a while. It could be made of Lite ply and use rare earth magnets, painted up to reflect your interests. Name and phone number mandatory.
