Sincere condolences to his family, so young, I am so sorry. This has been a hard year for our wonderful hobby in this way. I only hope the family can find some peace and comfort in what must be an impossible time for them.
Can we please, as a concerned, dedicated group of people who love our hobby, develop protocols that will help minimize horrors like this? Please can each one of us Truly put safety first? Not just say it but really do it?
CAn we now start walking up to our buddies that just threw it down right up front and say, "Great flight man, You are a great pilot but you were unsafe dude..."

My heart is aching for this family for this young man.

RIP ROMAN

Totally agree. It is difficult thing to do, as most of us are seasoned to only praise a flight that cuts it very close, but ends well.

Prayers for peace for his friends, family and fellow pilots.

Feel so bad about this nightmare event...I think all of us are deeply touched by this..
I am really thinking about constructing a light weight see through, easy to stow and setup cage to fly in... This way you can do low and close in 3d without too much worry about craning with self... Any ideas...? Made from PVC pipe and nylon netting.... Any ideas..

Here is some perspective on safety from when I was just starting out.

Having a heli 100 feet away from me lose a servo and it came my way, I turned and ran well left of where it was going to crash... Turns out it "chased" me and landed just shy of 2 feet from where I was standing.

Sometimes it's bad luck and "safety" has nothing to do with it.

This isn't and shouldn't be a discussion of safety at this time.

This is the 3rd death this year by an RC Heli.
This accident, the guy in Sweden, and... What was the third one? Link?

And, in case it hasn't been answered yet, it was a Trex 700 with what happened today.

I have no opinion to express.....just thought a safety boxy or net might be a good way for us to fly hard without worrying about injury... That's all..

Applegate,

I will PM you the link. Posting a link here would be inappropriate and take away the significance from what happened today.

Thanks for your understanding.
