Ouch, sorry about your crash. I loved the slow motion and super slow motion at the end. There's something therapeutic about watching my own crashes in slow motion.

Messed up because my buddy wanted a micro jet after seeing me fly mine all the time. I deside to upgrade motors and he wants my old motor, NP my maiden with new motor mega pulling 20A+ forgot to change out the 18A ESC and it went in right after launch DOH!, His new one few days later with my old motor... well you watched the vid LOL.

Here is what happened to mine on a bad launch...

Its fixed and hitting over 100 MPH now. I thought about how hard the launch is it always seems 50/50. Turns out I know I have some down thrust in my motor mount and if I cut the power off after flying fast it ballons up, and when I hit the power it dives down. Then I thought about how it glides in for a easy landing at my feet power off from about 50 yards out. Today I gave it a shot throttled up to about 1/4 and threw it..... it just floated away like nothing! I was able to slowly increase the throttle and had NO issues at all. DUH all this time.

It was also right after seeing my buddy destroy his when he tried to launch it strait up! Doh!

I seriously think that the MJ is one of the most crashed planes around. Sorry to see it go, looked to be doing rather well. Just curious how close was it to hitting the kid? It looked like it was only about15' away.

It was actually fixed and flown again but crashed last Sat. on a bad launch. Thats when I learned to do a 1/4 throttle launch and its super easy. That was actually my son running after his aero ace. Dogz and myself fly there all the time and I trust his flying skills. however just shows ya what can happen. It hit about 15' away from him and I had told him NOT to get in front of us. Kids!
