Ok, I bought a bunch of glow wire and a nifty new set of MS dual color night blades. I had it all rigged up and set it out in the back yard to try a hover before setting out to the field.

Just after it got spun up, I lost the radio and she started a slo roll at half power to the right and broke my new set of MS dual color night blades. They had a long hard life of about 15 seconds.

My question is this:

Can the glow wire cause RFi to the extent that it will cause a dead radio? If so, why didn't the reciever go into fail safe?

Maybe it is just my time to crash again, I have had three gallons of flawless flights, it must be time.

I came, I saw, I hovered

Me too

I just did the same thing, but I was at the flying field. My problem was that my mechanic failed to trim the canopy around the swash and I didn't notice it until I was back on the bench....Sucks. I don't know if glow wire would cause any interference, if that were the case your receiver would have gone into FS. Check and make sure the glow wire didn't come loose and wrap around something, maybe the receiver battery got too low. Just a couple of thoughts......Alan
