Hahahahaha!

Scott flew his TL40 rite through the middle of Erics superfly!!!! HAHAHA, it must of exploded into a dozen pieces!!! HAHAHAHA, has to be the coolest rc event I have witnessed personally.

I was cheering after it happened! It was awesome! Just wish I could of taken a second to glance at Erics face!!!! LOL

Unfortunately the TL40 went down as well It survived but has mushy nose syndrome...

The accidental mid air occurred roughly 6-8ft off the deck and at least 65mph but prolly faster.

Eric had his superfly plane rekitted in more pieces than it original came in. I'm sure the look on Eric's face would have been priceless. I'm sure the look of horror on my face would have been priceless knowing that I completely and utterly demolished / totaled his superfly which was entirely my fault. Reviewing the situation I remember doing one pass on the inside, one pass under them when Adam and Eric were hovering about 10 - 15' off the ground, and I'm not sure where I was planning on zipping by but the next thing I know I see a Superfly explode and the TL40 flip, spin, or something and hit the ground...
I keep laughing everytime I see his superfly. Sorry Eric!

Believe it or not the SF will fly again. It's all hot glued back together and the one servo arm that broke has been replaced. Just waiting for some PU to foam up to fill in a couple holes and I will have it back in the air by this evening.

SF is flying again!

Wish we had a video running non stop yesterday. 2 major mid-airs and 6 "stupid fun" ones with the Flys and my 1 pylon incident at full throttle with my now very mushy nosed 36 Lightning.

Hi Jim,
Nice meeting you guys. How did you fix your DX7?

The TL40 does an excellent job of annihilating SuperFly's haha. Although I do suggest above 15' so that you have time to recover yourself haha.
