I take it the engine is a gasoline engine. That fire is one reason why I would never have a gas engine. We have hit buildings near our field many times.

I've never seen a gas engine catch on fire. I've seen many crash and infact nitro electric and turbines are just as likely to catch on fire as a gas.

As I return to the same page that really sucks man.

Seriously - Are you for real? Let me try to get this. You or your colleagues have hit buildings "many times" near your field and your concerned about the remote possibility of a gas engine starting a fire. Please don't tell me you are the fields safety officer.

And some people wonder why there is a safety officer at the fields[X(] Sounds like a few people (or one) needs to get back on the trainer and get some stick time. I do some of the training at our field and i have to say, if you can't avoid buildings(minus the occassional mechanical failure), you aren't ready to solo because you haven't even learned what a no-fly zone is or how to command your plane and not let it lead you. Moroons running their planes into buildings,REPEATEDLY, is how people get the ammo they need to shut down our fields. My best advice is quite hitting the building and learn to fly because people like these are what gives all of us a bad rep. And as a second thought, think about what you post because common sense says telling the world that you guys are hitting buildings, repeatedly, just seems to have a touch of stupid to it

As for the GAS fire I think he probably set the fire himself I doubt it caught on fire by itself ! I have flown gas a yes Ive put them in and have not had them catch on fire! And as for the guy telling the world they like to fly into buildings around there flyin site I agree with cubmaster Plain STUPIDITY!!! Maybe they should have there site removed from them or there AMA Charter membership that might teach them a lesson that needs to be learned!!!
