Thanks for the link. I saw this model flying a couple of weeks ago at Rufforth, York. At a LMA show.
Someone told me it crashed at the nationals, shame, it was a lovely model.

Ouch, but as they say at every RC model airplane field in the world "if you can't afford to crash it then don't fly it." Every RC pilot crashes a plane eventually. Their reliability tends to be kind of poor because the stuff has to be made small and light wieght but at the same time must fly through the same atmosphere a full size plane does. Result is alot of wear and tear on the hardware and no redundancy so even a "small problem" on a full size plane is generally fatal for an RC model. The number 1 killer of model airplanes is a problem in the electrical system, that particular crash looks like a case of dead batteries to me. Its a sad end to a very nice machine but I'm sure that guy will build another one or something else equally impressive. He might have some trouble with the misses though, that right there is a $32,000 US plane he crashed. The only good news is he can probebly salvage atleast half of that. This of course is not including the 100+ hours he and his buddies spent building the plane from scratch.
