It looks like the covering on the top of the left wing came loose at the trailing edge at about 75kph during the nose over. Recovery would have been impossible because of the flapping covering.

Sorry about your loss. Can you think of anything that would have compromised the covering in that location?

Like metalfred asked, was any of the gear recoverable? I sure hope so!

half of the left wing broke away (also tearing apart the covering on the rest of the wing) because of too much speed&load in that dive.
nice video!

I have them, place asap...
for gear everything works, except for batteries dead and motor destroyed.
instead pixim, gopro, tx vd, ezosd, rx uhf, also antenna cp SPW are working perfectly.

Sorry for the loss of your plane but thanks for posting the video.

You're lucky the field was soft and the battery didn't catch fire. A few years ago I had a plane nose in from a couple hundred feet on to rocks and the force of the impact caused the battery, esc and motor to try and occupy the same spot. Big short and everything went up in smoke.

next glider model

Guys,
I'm looking for a glider that does not have speed limits. I would go to my next model:
1) Big Ceres E by baudismodel http://www.baudismodel.com/big-ceres-technical-data.php
2) Supra-E by kennedycomposites http://www.kennedycomposites.com/suprae.htm
3) Xplorer E by nanmodels http://www.nanmodels.com/
4) open to other models (suggested by you)

In your opinion which the much resistant? and which has a large fuselage, so I can insert large battery packs for FPV long range.

Seems as the motor/prop kept spinning after the failure.
Was it spinning by itself or did you not cut the power?

I would look at a cross country sailplane. They are big & fast, but not cheep.
NO aircraft has no speed limit, well maybe a DS sailplane.
I've only had my fpv plane up to 3600 meters

the propeller spins alone in the opposite direction of pull. Cut the power, the air do turn the prop in reverse.

You can see the amperage rating is 1A. That is only tx video osd and etc. ..

beautiful but at what speed max can resist it... for example 180km/h with base wind of 16-19 km/h it can?
