Well. That didn't end well.

It wasn't duck shooting season, with a pond just down the other side, was it???

I think the fin failed in a slow roll initially. Then nearly everything. Spectacular indeed. Probably a $**t load of work building it .Nev

poor bugger... you gotta build these things light, but I got the impression it was just too light to be strong enough.

I think there needs to be an investigation as to why crash services were so late on the scene. They may have been able to save that little pilot, if they'd been on the scene earlier!

 

I think that aircraft builder has a potential lawsuit against his adhesive supplier.

He didn't react quickly enough to his situation. Awareness. Don't fly anything where you only sit there and look the part. Nev

Later news is that his body was riddled with chemicals.

I thought the crash services were on the scene very quickly. There is a little black car with a white patch on the side racing to the scene. Not sure if concerned about the fire or about the pilot. There was a commentator, so that was a very public failure.

For every Doer, there's tons of knockers. Why? Because it's easier. The only person to never make a mistake never MADE anything. . This is why just Buying and acquiring STUFF may give little real satisfaction.. One of the greatest sources of satisfaction is planting something appropriate somewhere and seeing it GROW.. When YOU make something out of metal or wood or such, you MADE it otherwise it would not exist at all. People who just BUY things never KNOW that feeling .Nev

Believe me when you build a radio-controlled model you are at it forever, just ask OME.

I pulled out of it when RC was just really getting going. A REAL plane was no more cost. I ended up working on race Cars and never getting Paid. "Pay you after I get back from Bathurst OK? " Of Course it gets Bent, so No Dough. Nev

The pilots cause of death was listed as covid 19.

I think the builder was the guy in the white shirt don't know why he was running to the wreck all looked a bit terminal.
