VID 20161106 WA0004 (0 min 33 sec)

After repairing it and flying it several times ....
During a perfect flight once landed my plane did not respond. I went up to the plane and noticed that the receiver was deslinked. Try to join the sender and receiver but I did not succeed. A friend who saw the video of the second flight where he crashed told me that he did not seem to have stall. In this airplane I had a Futaba R617FS. I can not make the link with the radio. I suspect the previous accident was a radio fault. It is logical because the plane flies excellently well even at low speeds and has a controlled stall .
