A lot of wind, alone in the field, previous flight too much confidence, first inverted flights and again this old feeling of false confident, a couple of ouuhhh and almost crash, one part of me told me stop return to normal patterns and the other forced me to continue, this is the typical formula in me, is the pre crash routine, I passed twice before for thid routine. I kewn it but I continued ....
Result a complete destruction of my EVO, all the electronics looks OK, engine OK, Kit destroyed and muffler.

Somebody past for this too !!!!


GRRRR.

Hmm..kinda sounds like my crash today...I feel ya....except my engine was thrashed.....nothing like hearing an engine turn at around 30k while running and trying to get to it....but alas...too late...If you've ever heard a Nelson engine or similar at a pylon race, that's what it sounded like...Oh well....OS 50...hear I come....

The best was the noise of the fuel tank explosion and the blades at 1900 RPM impacting and breaking into several parts.

- Almost complete kit destroyed
- Muffler damaged
- one or two supected servo gear I need to open them

The rest look Ok (I mean the electronics)

I hate to rebuild and adjust the machine all over again, this hobby is only for persistent people...
