So did anyone else watch the plane crash show on discovery last night? They were intentionally crashing a 727 so they could better study the forces and other things that happen during and after a crash.

Here's the really cool part, they were flying a real 727 with a Futaba 8FG!!!!

Don't worry, you likely won't be flying in a 727.
And of course the chance of a crash is really incredibly small.

I realize voltages sags, just stating that its just as good with the timer instead of wasting money on the telemetry

I had a lot of fun taking these pictures for a giveaway contest.

Sadly, I crashed my 3DHS Edge last week. Since it was my first 3DHS plane and it gave me over 2 years of fun, I thought it deserved a little more respect than just a toss in the bin.



Flys like on rails.

Well....what else would you use to crash a plane....of course it was a Futaba...if it was a Spektrum or JR, they would still be flying....
