Moral of the story-lock your elevator in the DOWN position!

Wish they'd showed a photo of that plane after all was done.

Are you kidding me,........not real, well if its not they are really good at what they do,.... the cam was in a fixed position. If you watch you can see the shadow just as it crashed. Also check out the surroundings for wind speed.
As far as scale on the steps and fence well, don't what to tell you, maybe its is an RC Aircraft who knows as far as I can see its the real thing,...I do agree about down elevator,...Happy Trails

Looked like me flying this morning.

My takeoff roll was spectacularly short, and could not even taxi crosswind or downwind.

The video looks odd (like an RC plane) because it's a long shot with a zoom lens- you get what's called 'depth of field compression', I've spent a good bit of time with this phenomena.


BTW I believe 'unmanned' in this case does not refer to it as a UAV... but there are indeed some optionally-piloted (UAV or piloted) aircraft out there.
