Thank you for your concern. I am afraid a bad guy will scuttle it after removing components.

I lost a brand new Hanger 9 warhawk with a YS110 on its maiden. Some golfers told me some jerk in a black SUV picked it up and took off. The golfer also said the guy came from the Apollo flying field and had another plane inside. (he must have been another RC flyer who saw my plane going down) That plane lost was over 1K. That jerk will have his day (Karma) John I feel your pain.

speaking of lost models........a few yrs ago I was flying on floats with some high trees in the surounding area, bringing it in and lost depth perception,well the crazy thing flew into some tree top and sat thier for about a year thru all kinds of weather! kept watching off/on and it fianally must have blew down,
if the wing wouldnt have been intact everything would have been ruined, but all was still useable, pretty crazy huh,so far over the years Ive had 4 fly away never to be seen again! the sick feeling is indescribable>>>>>>>> dont give up hope

Here is saga of this Zero.
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ht=guanli+zero

This Zero gave me a trouble from the beginning.
Misaligned incidence and incorrect motor thrust line were the problem. Also sensitive aileron made it difficult to fly. Plane's attitude changed with speed. It did not fly sraight line. Up and down and from left to right.

As I struggled to bring it back, it flew further away as it turned wrong way. I should have cut motor and forced it to land sooner.

You have my sympathy, too.

My Zero was a small foam parkflyer. It didn't cost 1K but 1/10 of it. About $100.

I should have drove car into the field from the beginning. I walked around for about an hour and quit after so tired. Next morning, I returned and drove 4WD SUV all over the field without finding lost plane. I suspect someone picked it up previous day after I left.
