Some flying... and then... death of a Twinstar
17/2/2011 Filed in: RC stuff
It was a beautiful day to do some FPV flying. We headed out and set everything up.
On the last flight our Twinstar lost its wings due to a failing wing-mount. The Twinstar dumped straight from the sky without wings and was ultimately completely smashed. Some parts were salvaged, but the batteries were done -- they were smoking when we arrived at the crash-site. The Twinstar body was completely destroyed, but video transmitter, camera, 2 servos and both engines (one of the engines rod/shaft were broken) were OK.
We'll now begin to rebuild our Twinstar, and we'll surely reinforce the mount holding the wings! ;)
