Hope the category fits. Since the rc thread was closed, I made a new one. So what happened? My transmitter (DX9) and battery of it are approximately 2 years old - every 2 years one should check the battery, since when LiPos get older, they like to suddenly drop power fast and the voltage warning won’t kick in. I knew I had to change my battery soon, however didnt purchase it yet. So, glider thrown in the air, beautiful flight. Suddenly in a left corner I lose control over the aircraft, reasonable bad with a 4m wingspan glider with almost 6 kilos. So it circled 3 times to the left, bank angle always getting steeper, before it actually crashed into a tree. Ironically, I installed a camera on it right before take off. Once I have found the scene on the long video, I may upload it.
Here are some pics, shoutout to my friend and his John Deere :
The bird in the tree…
Well, checkout that construction we built on the Jonny.
The damage : Well, it’s just some wing rebuilding and covering with foil - to be honest the very best possibility how this ended.
So, also if this is a virtual sim forum, always check your battery and its condition, not just its voltage. I got away with just some sunday hours of work, but this was a luckily completely random good fortune in a misfortune.
