Last flight of the Skyline Edge 540 30cc

Well, my Edge had its last flight today...
After a parachute maneuver the wings ripped the fuselage structure off and plane plunged to its death
I need to buy better planes or start flying a bit less aggressively the 6S lipo survived with minor scratches but the 5S was totally destroyed.
Here is a quick video edit of what was certainly my funniest and most awesome crash

Yeah the parachute should not be done at high speed on a downward line...I have seen tear up a few large scale planes.

One thing which is great is it looks like you had plenty of witness's to enjoy the carnage.

Wow, I didn't saw the replies since I started the thread (sorry guys), I'll have to check my FG setup regarding subscriptions.

It was not really fast Ronster, actually it was a no throttle parachute. I've done many blenders and high speed parachutes with other planes (up to 30cc) without issues. A 3D/ XA plane of decent quality is supposed to withstand this kind of maneuver without issues.
I believe the plane had a structural weak point which was not easy to detect. Maybe it was an isolated issue with my plane.
