Re: Lander Mig 17 VERY untimely demise.

well you would think the guy beside him with his hands in his pockets would have seen the car but oh well this is the chance you take when you fly off a street. Lucky no one was injured.

Re: Lander Mig 17 VERY untimely demise.

I guess the need for a paved runway leads these guys to fly where they probably shouldn't. In their defence however it looks like a new construction area where the roads are not complete and I guess maybe the car was not expected to be there. Anyway you look at it, to me, it is an ill-advised location for R/C model flight activities. It might have been different if the Mig had struck the guy on the motorcycle that went by at one point. I have watched the video for the new Hobby Topgun MIG and it is being flown with cars going by also. Not somethging I would do, but a slick flying plane right up the end.....
