Is there a video of the fist fight that followed? I assume that the helicopter was doing aerobatics as it was inverted when it got hit? Shame it looked like the zero had a lot of labor in it.

3500$ plane, knocked down by a 75$ toy helicopter, that could have been flown anywhere but here. Yeah, there's gonna be a fistfight.

I doubt the RC copter was only $75 dollars. At any rate, flying RC is very hazardous. :wink:

There lots of options these days for a plane that size, from big 2 strokes to full blown radial 4 strokes.

Fuji-Imvac 50 cc gas EI engine

Since this wasn't a plane with a real RC-scale radial, it's a bit less of a disappointment for me as a viewer that it kamikazed.

Just guessing, but it wouldn't surprise me if a "new" radial like that Wasp would run a half million.
