My friend was flying an Airhogs plane and another pilot was flying a much larger EDF. The EDF pilot was trying to hit the smaller plane - he did, and the streamer was sucked into the fan and destroyed it.

come on, 1 foot is well inside the flight envelope. Its more like the tips on the grass. When you land and there is grass stains on the wing tips or tail, thats when your pushing your envelope

Got stains? Yeah, but this plane when slowed down some (not real slow) will do an accelerated snap/ stall to the right with too much elevator, which is not unusual just violent and require a bit more than normal altitude for recovery. I knew this as it is quite pronounced but got into it and snap smack oops, I already have a new fuse so I should be back up Sunday. The split elevator may contribute to this.

these newer planes really crash spectacular, so light so explosive when smashed into the earth... they just disappear back to about the wing saddle.

Here we just have a little Techone micro superjet that decided to stick itself way high up in a tree, ripping one wing off in the process. The football used to get it down did the other wing
