Default OS 1.20 Go Boom....!!!

Just another day at the field. But a first for me did occur. OS FS 1.20 in my Ultimate Bipe let go at about 40 feet up just after a nice knife edge climb out. Rolled her wings level powered up and just as I was pulling into the vertical, a loud sharp crack, like a home run ball being hit, and the prop went flying off! I ruddered her over and tried my best to gain as much energy going straight down and then tried to time my pull.... and missed by about a foot. Ripped the gear out of the plane, but no other damage that I can see.

Pulled the OS apart and it was literally in parts! I have never blown an engine in flight. Toasted a couple on the test stand trying to wring every ounce out of those plylon engines, but never in the air.

Boom.... Here's Your Parts!
