Playing with any RC vehicle is fun. Whether it’s a boat, car or airplane you can spend the day just driving it around. Some of these vehicles can get rather expensive. Depending on the features you could be looking at thousands of dollars. Well one man had an RC B-52 airplane worth $60,000. Unfortunately for him the crash landing made him lose his 60k investment.
The announcer states that the B-52 has 8 gas turbines. He also states that the plane normally flies with its nose slightly down. You can hear in the video below that there was a little bit of wind. This may have had some play in why the plane crashed.
The plane begins to speed off down the runway swaying from side to side. As it rises in the air you can tell that there is a quite a bit of resistance from the wind. As it gains altitude and turns around it appears to be flying quite well.
Things take a turn for the worse when the pilot has some confusion on the planes orientation. Looking at the controls in a backwards manner he makes a wrong move. The plane takes a sharp turn towards the ground before crashing. A cloud of smoke can be seen after the impact. Luckily no one was hurt. Although that is a big loss of money.
