Default RC heli crash at Weston Park

Don't know what happened here but it hit the ground hard. Shame. Pilot was just getting into his routine.

The commentator is well versed in helicopter flight. He's the same commentator that comes to IRCHA here in Muncie Indiana.

Blade strike that the pilot did not notice and kept on flying. You can hear the blade strike, immediately followed by the buzz, buzz, buzz sound as the heli tried to climb, finally loosing tail control.

I appreciate the skill involved in that type of flying but get no satisfaction on watching epileptic moskitos flying around the field.
