I was flying my MUS today and having quite a bit of fun early in the morning.
The sun was low and I did not keep track of it close enough.
As I crossed the sun I was low and lost track of my MUS at distance and totaled it.
But when I got to it I thought to myself at least the electronics and such were good.
I unplugged the battery and walked back to my Jeep with the parts in hand and supported in some cases by the wiring to the components.
As I got to the jeep the battery started smoking like a smoke grenade and I dropped the remains of the plane and backed away for safety.
As the battery smoked it managed to burn through the wiring to the ESC and fry the receiver too. Oh well.
And the Park 450 was destroyed by the impact as well.
Pretty bad crash overall and it was all my fault allowing the low attitude of the plane, distance to it and the sun to get in the way.
At least I did not get burned by the battery when it decided to short.
I don't think I will bother to rebuild this MUS. However, a 25 replacement might be in order.
