RBC Panther, looks great, but not a great flyer.

Go to slow and ......... well you see the results.

Oh well on to the next build

Holy Molly, Ken. Did you send out a tremor when you hit the ground?

What's next? Will she fly again?

Guys,

When I crash I crash for keeps.

You should have seen the other 2 planes I crashed over the last 3 weeks, an EDF Jetster and a Tempest MK II much worse than the Panther. Sorry no pictures. Just imagine large dents in the ground surrounded by large amounts of balsawood.

No she will not fly again. I could have fixed her if I really wanted to but she was not that great a flyer. I will put the equipment to better use in a new EDF to be deceided on later.

Now I have to figure out what to build next.

Ken

Crashed in water, does it count


A gigolo decided to take a bath and landed (did not really crash) in the sea.

Many of these crashes were recorded on video.

See the Video section on Electron: http://plawner.net/
