I hate to hear news like this. I can't imagine what the parents, immediate family, and friends are going through right now.

This is the 3rd death this year by an RC Heli.

The mangled helicopter has black and white striped wings. It came came to rest on its propeller in a grassy area of the park.
Sad to hear, but can't the news dorks get anything right ??

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

It's hard to say what the heli was. It looks like a 600 or 700 size electric. I'm just waiting on Ernie to chime in.

Very sad indeed. I hope the family can heal.

I was wondering about the use of safety nets...you can see through them..
Often thought about flying behind one.. Should this be standard equipment at fields... Would they have prevented this?

This field is very close to the Seaview Rotary Wing Club field, mere blocks away.

So sad. Our thoughts are with the family and club members.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.
