Looks like someone tried to fly it, crashed it and say, "Well, to hell with this!!!" and dumped the whole thing in the trash. Anyone ever seen happen at the flying field? I have.
Back when we used one transmitter with each plane, there was this friend that was having trouble with his radio. He lost control of the plane and it made an epic splash. Next thing I knew, the transmitter was flying at about 50 feet into the air that looked like a "hail Mary pass". The left field receiver wasn't there for the catch and the referee called it out of play. No touch down, no first down.
