Thankfully it came down in tall grass which "kind of cushioned" the impact.

My wife Kim and I decided to go out to the radio control airplane field in Cedar Springs before dinner tonight.  The weather was perfect.  Sunny, 86, just a slight breeze out of the west.  Eric, Tom and John had helped me finally figure out what was wrong with the throttle control on my beautiful Sig Kadet Senior Sport airplane,and it was flying like a dream.  I was doing touch and go's figure eights, loops and rolls.   I even flew upside for a couple of hundred yards!

I was having the time of my life......

and then the Left Wing simply broke in half.....

It fluttered down to ground, landing about 30 seconds after the rest of the plane piled in.

I even bent the batteries.

I guess... it's time for a new plane.

If you fly them.... you are going to crash them.
