I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Ben...once you've been in this game as long as some of us have, you get philosophical about such things - as my old instructor said many years ago...
"its only a bit of wood" Surprised

My first ( well almost ) of 2011 - Page 2 Empty What killed my PC9

Post by Tim on 2011-03-21, 23:53

Shan't bore you all with the long version ( its over on RCME forum if you want that ) but after extensive analysis, the culprit has been found. A main power supply lead / gold connector joint joint failed on the data logger to ESC input, ( lucky in some ways it was on-board the model - maybe unlucky in other ways ) causing an immediate and total loss of everything 24 seconds into flight, as the separate heavy duty UBEC was powered by the same main battery.
RIP PC9 pale

Flew so nice I just had to get another, and she's all ready to go.
Hope the weather plays ball, oh, and that she lasts longer than the first
one. SadMy first ( well almost ) of 2011 - Page 2 SL275011
