It looks like it was a good thing it hit the dirt. Maybe it was just the video but all those people looked awful close to the run way.

Frank,

I saw that video as late as maybe April last year. I did some extensive searching, and near as I can tell is the links I found no longer work. Maybe someone has it saved and can share it again.

In case anyone's wondering, it's actually the first flight attempt of the plane in the link above. Pretty much the plane rotated, had very bad thrust vectoring problems, did an immediate flip and pancacked onto the deck. Video lasted all of about 30 secs.

I've got the video, 18.8 MB long. I just uploaded it to YouTube at:

Give it a few minutes to process.

Enjoy!

Chris

Edit: YouTube is reacting slowly. Here is a direct link:

I watched the last video fist (first flight, crash on takeoff). I like the first video (flying then crashing) where you can actually hear that it is truly jet powered. The mellow dramatic music and G.W. blabbering in the background was way too much for me.

It's funny how many videos I've seen of jet powered planes coming apart during high speed passes. Is there a way to flutter test a RC model? In real airplanes I start at low speed and "slap" the stick to try and induce flutter and keep repeating the test going 5 knots faster each time until I find where it starts. I guess on a model you don't have an accurate idea of speed and I'm not sure you can detect flutter until parts start falling off.
