    Luckily it crashed as I was flying home so the wreckage was retrieved. Very lucky because on my previous battery I flew to a 1500m elevation, it would have been impossible to locate if it died up there.
    Time for a new Mini Talon fuselage!

    Did I see two people holding hands in one of the last frames?

    Radius, I saw your frame grabs the other day somewhere, maybe facebook. That was a hell of a ride.
    Get me a Crocodile sandwich. And make it snappy.

    Correct. The two lucky people we lucky indeed. I was so embarrassed and apologised profusely. They didn't seem to mind at all. I pride myself on being a safe pilot so a crash like that sits uneasily with me. Give me full throttle into a tree while threading a gap any day!

    I have had a similar experience once. Felt a bit sick even-though I wasn't really close. Statistically you can probably go down like that a 1000 000 times without hitting anyone, when flying over deserted places.

    Yeah I had an experience like that once too in my early days of FPV. Lost video while flying over a lake, and my plane turned around 180*, flew back across the lake, hit the ground right at the edge of the water and then bounced into a nearby bike trail and hit the side of a lady's bike. She and her husband were literally the only people on the bike trail on that entire side of the lake. They were of course furious and the husband refused to give my plane back until the cops were called and they forced him to give it back. I'm glad that's the only time anything like that has ever happened to me.

    Back when i was new to the hobby I once lost sight of a big foamy mustang i was flying LoS -- I looked down at my tx for 3 seconds. I couldn't see it or hear it, and had that horrible moment of terror not knowing where/if it would come down and kill someone. I heard a loud bang/crunch and it had piledriven nose first right next to someone playing (1 of 2 people in total) ball in the neighbouring field! I was so embarrassed and ashamed.

    In the late 80s I hit a young bovine with my 2 channel glider. It hit low, head on. Both wings hit its forelegs. It was a low energy impact, but startled the bull. It said mooo and skipped backwards a couple of feet. No one saw it, so my buddy and me just laughed heartily. My plane was ok. Good times:-)
