Tower .40 Ultimate w/YS 60 tuned pipe

Low full throttle pass and suddenly put itself in the dirt. No imput from me. Doing about 100 mph. Huge divot!!

Seems like a lot of power for that plane. Bipes arenít usually built for extreme speed. Sorry for the loss.

I had a Futaba R6008HS Rx. No flutter. No warning. I did mangage to pull up on the stick half way before it hit but nothing happened. I do have a help question in the Radio Forum about my radio and receivers. I have a 10 cap and have had two crashes. I always have used 617 Rx with no issues.

The tuned pipe made it heavy. It would go fast in a straight line though.
