Hey I allmost figured it out. The engine was an YS 120 and the crater that it left in the dirt was around 3 ft and 18 inches deep. The engine actually survived.

Sorry for your "pain". Been there - done that - that's why I carry a 30 gal. trash bag in my field box.

I hear where a lot of guys put them in the aft portion of their fuselages just so that it'll be closer to the scene of the crash...

Sorry for your loss, though []

I cant blame the cap for the crash at all. I was coming into final and it locked out, turned slow three times and then went full throttle and slammed into the ground from about 100 foot up. It hit so hard that the motor didnt stop right off. Most of the pieces where not larger than a quarter. The crash was actually awsome. Post crash the battery still has plenty of juice so I guess I will never know. DX7?

Emmmmm, sounds familiar. Iwas flying my LT-40 recently to remove the pilot rust. It crashed with very similar symptoms to yours. This was its 2nd flight that afternoon on a recently charged 6.0v 2000 mAh pack. Post crash analysis included putting the battery on a volt meter - 6.8v. Em, add Rx load - the voltage dropped steadily to 3.9v in, oh a couple of seconds at most. Removed the load - 6.8v. Not my DX7. But definitely a brown out because the DX7 does that when voltage drops bellow 4.something.

I have a battery tester and tested under load the battery was still good. I dont think the YS 120 I had on the plane had ever run stronger than that last few seconds before it slammed into the ground.
