Definitely that!

Good shots. It's not easy keeping them in focus.

You did a fine job. Did he actually crash there or just move the pieces there for the photo? At sanctioned fields the flight line is quite a distance from the parking area. If that's a sanctioned field he's way out of bounds.

That is where it landed. We were at University Of Louisiana Lafayette baseball field and he was flying in the parking lot beside the field. The crash location was on the opposite side of the field from the lot they were taking off from. This particular plane was being piloted by one man and was tethered to a students control. Not sure how that works but I am pretty sure they lost control of the craft while trying to instruct the newbie. Here is a schematic of the doomed flight

Couldn't pass it up.

I assume all those planes are electrics. Things have changed a lot since I was flying R/C over twenty years ago.

They all look to be electric foamies. The tethering is called using a buddy box & is a common training method which seems to have gone VERY wrong here. from the photos it looks like the plane is the only real casualty but that's pure luck because it could have hit a car, person etc. I would not recommend they try that again unless there's a lot more EMPTY space around the flying field.

Agreed VERY dangerous to fly over a full baseball field. 20 feet further and it would have gone through my windshield.

I photograph the local events & on Sat we had our big Zone event & one relatively new pilot violated the flight line rule (no flying behind the pilot stations) by roughly 5 feet and he was ordered to land. Safety is a very big concern.

I was a member of L.A.R.K.S. (Lake Area Radio Kontrol Society) of Sulphur, LA for about 20 years and we had some very stringent safety rules that were not to be violated. ;)
