While flying last weekend my Stryker’s right vertical stabilizer decided to come off during a high speed fly by. From the noise I initially though I had a shattered prop but I was quickly relieved that I still had power. After trying to see how this thing would behave with only one vertical stabilizer I landed it just off the runway in some grass. No harm.
When the vertical stabilizer was found, we noticed it had a chunk of it missing from where the prop bit into it. The stryker had a mid-air collision with – itself. Too funny.
This plane has been heavily used all summer and it’s a great flyer. I’m currently using cheap Tenergy 25C 1800mah batteries and so far they work great!.
