A year and a half ago i lost radio contact with this Aerobeez Extra and it raced across the runway out into the hay field and hit a round bale of hay. The DA 85 at full throttle and 32 ounces of gas and heading towards town, I'm glad it stayed on the ground.

OMG, that must have been quite scary. Did you never find out what caused the loss of radio signal ?

Dummy Me, while setting the plane up with the radio I didn't complete the fail safe. While at the Black Hills Air Rally a friend helped me start it. It was setting at idle I noticed that I had forgot my neck strap, older friend was lightly holding tail while I went to get my strap. I was wondering thru the planes in pit area, hooking the strap to radio I oops hit the switch and shut radio off. The DA went full throttle and he couldn't hold it. Talk about embarrassing and feeling like total Idiot.
