Total re-kit. All electronics/motor/pipe must be replaced.

Looking for a very funny caption.

Total loss of power. V-bar doing funky chicken all the way to the ground. I think I know the source of the problem, but I need to test before saying.

BTW, all electronics were still securely strapped. They are loose here because I was checking for damage.

This is NOT a lipo fire. LIPO is good and charged.

Luckily LIPO was ejected on impact.

This is the LIPO in its current state.

I would hate to have seen a lipo add to the disaster.

Wow!!!

That's the first nitro I ever saw burn without the lipo causing it.

Stuck wide open and fuel line came off and sprayed the clutch?

Rare.

This could of been avoided if I used a "Throttle return spring"

Looks like the engine stuck wide open and the blades were blocked.
Clutch gets way hotter than the engine in that case.

Just guessing but the fire looks like it started in the clutch.

I agree. Fairly certain the fire started at the clutch bell. I was scared to get to close to the machine during the funky chicken dance.

All I can say is this really sucks.

1 gallon of nitro fuel $26.95

RTF TREX 700 fully decked out. $2500

Throttle return spring. PRICELESS!
