There is really only one person whose opinion on this matter is important to me, and that is the 700 pilot. He is also the only person who will know how I handled it. If he wishes to share that information with you, so be it. It is our business.

Dang and I left my popcorn at home........
IMO, and noting I was not there, camera angles and such make it so we that were not there can not KNOW, I think Furyous is clearly at fault and there fore liable.

That said I agree with Furyous
Its between him and the 700 guy, not our business.

That said, all this was posted in public so what is happening should be expected.

That said, if it were me 1. I would not have posted this and 2. Id be paying up.

Translated - I didn't handle it like a man, but a weasel.

Obviously the opinions here ARE important to you or you would have not just put up that post. If you didn't want opinions then why did you post the vid on the internet? News flash, you get opinions whether or not you want them. So really, you should have just not put it out for people to see if you didn't want a reaction.

Come in here and blame the spotter for your own stupidity, then get your panties in a wad when people give opinions on said stupidity, and then dance around the situation because you screwed the other pilot. Nice one!

If that's the case, then why did YOU start this thread to begin with?

Irresponsible flying, causing a mid-air, and then posting (practically bragging) about it along with video is a recipe for disaster.

Imagine how that Trex 700 pilot feels now?

Furyous, you made it everyone's business by posting the vid and making that comment about the spotter.

You are right about spotters being useless though, they're useless when the pilots don't use common sense.

Thats cool and 100% understandable that you wanna keep it between you and him.I just know how things went down and how things were said but it sounds like it will work out.All I know is our club is helping the him out and nothing ealse was said.You just have to understand and put the shoe on the other foot,how would you feel if someone did this to you?Im sure you would want him to man up and do what he can to help out.

Sure sounds like Furyous didn't man up on this one. I sure would like to know what was said immediately after this incident but I predict this thread will be closed soon.

Great video Furyous. And I certainly commend you for having a knack of creating controversial posts. Between this one and the one last week about waiting 13 months on a bad deal, you take the cake.I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

Anyone know what the damages to the 700 were, and more importantly is there anything that all we can all do to help him get back in the air? I know i'd be willing to chip in some to help out.

Speed runs at a FF are risky at best. I love doing them but tend to leave those out of the mix at a FF unless certain conditions align to make it happen. Basically only if the station on either side of me happens to be unused at the moment.
