Looks like it was made out of paper machette.

Next time use quality building materials and reinforce the frame.


Actually soem are made of aircraft aluminum and steel or titatium frames. the larger ones are easiest to construct of that i hear.

Very strange crash, I've been flying R/C for long and have seen 1/3 scale models
at my airfield, I have personally lost rudder/stabilizers/ailerons but this one
started to fall apart after loosing the rudder, usually they are more robust
and can loose parts in the air and fly like that, and if you're good you can put
it in the ground in one piece.

Yes some are, this one obviously wasnt. Couldn't have been flying more than 35mph and the rudder obliterated.

It's a shame that it broke apart.

And that's the wa-a-a-ay the news goes!

P.S. -- Some people in this world have way too much money.

For high end big scale jets I think they go for composites for a lot of the airframe now.For warbirds etc either foam or balsa is still used I think.

Structural failure of the vertical stab due to side loads. If you pause the video you can see the fin fail and fold left as the aircraft rolls right approximately halfway up the structure. My guess is that it just wasn't strong enough.

LEE.
