The wing fell off

Take these broken wings, and learn to fly again, learn to live so free!

Great. Now I have that song stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

    Very Scary Guys – That’s the song that was on the XM when I checked the strip this morning.

    @Eagle: You do know that video’s a fake, right? for what really happens, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-A4QZAxrb28

    Had a complete tail section fall off while coming into land once. Was not happy since the model fell into the stream running around the field.

    The full-scale vid was faked. The real incident happened to a 33% aerobatic RC model where the owner was able to continue flying a knife-edge and approach for a landing. The only additional damage to the model was bent landing gear. This was only possible because of the way the wing panels attach (bolted to the fuselage separately) and the excess power-to-weight common to this type of model aircraft. The video is on YouTube if you want to look for it.
