Default QQ Cap232EX crashes on first flight

Title says it all. Filmed a fellow pilots maiden flight. It did not go well.

Sad ....

I must admit that I always like to stand directly behind a model for first take off ... that first run and lift off usually shows up trim needs and gives e better chance of sorting.

Did they manage to decide what actually caused the crash ?

Must say - I was surprised by the guy holding up what looked like an entire firewall / cowl job ... was that reason it crashed ?

I am curious myself as to the cause of this. I have that plane and man is it easy to fly. Hate that happened to him.
