That's what happened the first and only time I tried to fly a gas powered plane.
I feel his pain.

The Sun is one of the UK's Biggest national newspapers so I would doubt the ad-aware to be malicious. It's always sad to see something like this happen, I was at the BMFA Nationals at RAF Barkstone Heath when the RC B-52 Crash happened. Spectacular crash but a very sad sight to see.
