Not a good place to set up speakers, but it appears the pilot wandered out of center a good bit.

I once was flying something like a Ringmaster on a pretty windy day. It was at just some park where there was power lines on one end. Round and round I went not noticing that I was moving towards the power lines. I skimmed them. Lucky me I noticed and moved away from them. Could have been instant electrocution. Sometimes we get lucky.

Your last name could've started with "D".

Really, a tragedy is losing a family member, by comparison, crashing a model plane is a minor inconvenience.

We all know that any time we fly we could lose that model by one cause or another.

It's sad for the pilot that he lost his at a contest, but otherwise unremarkable.

Why were the speakers so close to the circle, and why did the pilot get so far out of the centre circle?

I thought the same thing when I saw the word tragedy used , but then I thought that since the story was likely translated from Japanese , the translator may have equated the Japanese word for crash to our word tragedy ? For all we know , there is no word in Japanese for "Spectacular Fail" ?

Spectacular Fail=壮大な失敗

The tittle of the video only mention "Crash":

P.A. systems at contests irritate me, too, but I never thought about Kamikazing one.

The word "Tragedy" in the title made me think somebody had been injured/killed. Too bad about your plane but at least nobody was injured.

I was still waiting for the "Tragedy Part" at the end of the video. Another plane down, next one up....

Trex, I apologise to you if my comment caused offence. I tried to find your location to see if there was a translation error.
