Looks like he hit a wire or something. Is that what happened?

Looks like a mid-air collision. If you slow it down it looks like two planes, in pieces falling.

Powerline 2 - Estarter 1

Getting in a little midnight flying when a powerpole grabbed my Estarter right where all the electrical gizmos are mounted.

The Estarter wasn't going to take being accosted this way. So, something, maybe the wire landing gear, hit just the right spot or spots and after the giant bang and explosion of sparks, this is what I picked up off the ground before I fled the scene. Suprisingly, I didn't see anyone's lights go out.

I don't think I have enough epoxy for this one. I think I can save the propsaver, the formerly red but now black stick mount, maybe an led or two, and a couple of dubro mini-links. Unbelievably, the lipo came out looking not too bad. I should check it out just for yuks.

Oh my WORD!!! That's one seriously fried E-Starter!!!

Like you I'm surprised no lights went out ...

The electroncs definitely won't have liked that! .... particularly the poor receiver which is expecting a few micro volts down its aerial ... not several kilovolts!

Would love to have seen a video of it happen .... bet it gave you the fright of your life!

Is that the same one that crashed just after takeoff did a loop up and over
into the runway?
It sure is unstable and twitchy in flight.
But did look cool!

the 117 design is a wild thing for a non computer flight system to fly, with out it the real one would do the same wild spin,, i think it was the second rebuild from the one that did the loop and crash...

Ohhh dear .... well what did they expect when building a plane that was only intended to fly under complete computer control?

Ah well ... Kudos to them for trying
