Nope, gonna rebuild. I can build it better the 2nd time around.

Lost the lipo, inspected it at the field it was fine. I got it home threw it on the charger to bring it down to storage capacity and when it was done I took it off, it had puffed on the side that was impacted.

i flamed a esc today on mine and it never had a chance. i flew it as far as the bec would go before i lost all control as i watched my pitts descend into the field trailing what was white smoke turning to black before impact. and it was still 150 yards short of the runway. its a shame because i was starting to like this plane.

My first mid air carnage!


I was doing a fast low fly-by in pattern at my new club last Saturday after calling it out, then when I started my climbing turn- a other person lost altitude and fell in my flight path with his plane. This was the result. Instant whack with early 4th of July confetti! The other crashed on the runway and I sliced right through him and my plane became a lawn dart, traveling very far from the runway!

The only damage to my plane besides the Avistar being destroyed was a striped gear in a servo, a bent remote needle valve arm.

The other plane the carb was completely broken off his engine, and a sevo wire was chopped from my prop.

The club emailed me and decided to only charge me half price for the club dues this year because they felt bad. It was no-ones fault and all is good. I told the other guy that our wives will really believe us that we went flying that day, and didn't go to the VFW. Also I told him that if he blamed me for the acciden't that his wife should have no problem allowing him to buy a new airplane.

Skilled crasher
Half a year ago, my 6th flight:

Reason - lots of servos+gyro+strong wind=not enough BEC power. Reproduced it on ground later.
Plane ws behaving funny prior to that, flying in rectangular pattern: straight up-horizontal-straight down-horizontal-up....
