Guys,

the origin of the disaster has been identified.

Most probably it was a lock-out due to Rx failure.
The receiver has been tested today in a friend`s glider.
After some time the glider suddenly started doing rolls and wasn`t controllable from that moment on. The crash destroyed the glider.

The receiver was a brand new Futaba 8 channel HS (Highspeed) Version.
It only had about 4-5 flights in my Srimok till the crash happened.

So again we all have to beware of possible technical failures, even of all new electronic devices, at any time. This must remind us to stick with foresightful flying and observe the general rule of safety zones and distance.
We all like spectacular flying and the coolness doing 4-point tic tocs 4 meters in front of the pilot. But imagine the consequences of such a lock out for you, your friends or the audience.
It is only a hobby. Our machines and radios are great. But far from perfect...
Safety first..Totally agreed about safe distance..

I am a noob flyer from Singapore! Team Nitro Magic
