Now if it had only been made of balsa and Ply, you'd have it fixed by now

And the crash would have been more spectacular. [X(]

In any case, that was allot of work and looked nice and I always hate to see a plane go in.

Almost perfect, but not quite.

For true scale realism, you really needed gas engines so that there was a fire.

Thanks for sharing. Sorry the model crashed.

Did an engine quit, causing the model to enter a spiral dive?

In the article It seems he thinks that the right aileron may have become loose. The one pic that shows the moment of impact shows it loose and the engine running. This is possible but this could also be where the force was strong enough to loosen the aileron and the wing just did not get far enough at the time to stop the engine.
