Ever wonder what your Red Baron would look like if it slammed into the ground at full force on a C6?

Not Pretty!

One of the wires or clips must have moved from the motor blast and got hung up.:confused:

So I basically flew it tied to a string. It went up, over my head, and hit the dirt 15 feet behind me. (motor still burning)

I had only flown it once before, and it was a great flier.

Time to get out the glue

:rolleyes:

Hmm maybe replace the snapped parts with new stuff ? Or just sand , sand and sand some more to get her going again! Good to hear you were not harmed by that , that sounded like a rather close call!
