As per title .Kevin bought this along to the field on Saturday and asked me if I would test fly it. This is the second attempt after adjusting the thrust line of the EDF . The motor stopping suddenly was NOT planned .

Unfortunately Danny the cameraman never caught the  sudden bang and the letting out of smoke one back in the pits ! The speed controller had packed up (overheated ) and when we tried to see what had happened it blew up !! The plane was well scorched and full of black smelly stuff but has survived. The batteries , two 6s 5000 mAh expanded considerably before kevin managed to unplug them :shock:. But it Flew (lapping sort of .
