Gate post broken

Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:42 pm by Gary M Jones

Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

Ah, I didn't know that was the plane Mike crashed. I blame dodgy building Smile

No idea what went wrong with your Quad Rich. The only things I can think of, are an intermittent loose connection somewhere between the Naza unit and the motors. A glitch on the power/speed of a motor could be enough to flip the craft. Either that, or as I said, the Earth's magnetic field reversed momentarily.

It's always a bummer when there is no clearly identifiable reason for a crash.

But yes, the weather was good, and it was a good weekend!

Was that the glitch I could see causing the intermittent interference on your head set Rich ?

Yes Will quite possible I have a vid of the crash, there is a noise from a motor I think, so if one motor packed in then that would cause the flip over

Bad news Mike, usually a pull instead of a push results in a heavy impact sorry to hear that Crying or Very sad
