After a year of good fun, the Elita ended her life today (again) at NFS.

It was strong easterly wind and was good condition for DSing. Entered the track as normal, started to pick up speed. She screamed loudly, and everyone on the slope was watching. Few rounds later, when I pulled up at the buttom of the track, she suddenly clapped her winds (clapping hands).

Experienced pilot like you would know, the spar broke. She ended up dashing toward the slope at about 150 Kmh.

A bit of luck out of very unlucky, she did not hit on any car or people. The nose cone was completely earthed into the soil !!

Even good repairer like me, still certified her death, despite reluctantly.

My deep condolence !!

Death inquest:

The spar was convert from Aris's spar.

Having checked, I found the middle section of the spar was not soaked enough epoxy !!

That why it was so easy to break (150km is not very fast)

阿邦,
隻美女Elita都被你玩左幾年,係時候放佢走啦!

我有兩條Aris的Wing joiners,但都是斷骨再縛,仲有一條完整無決,但留左係龍蝦灣。

Aris條陣真係好弱,所以我唔會用佢來玩DS。
拆衷順便啦!

無左隻Elita,你會帶咩野機去韓國比賽呀?

I consider this to be very lucky.
Dear pilots,
FNS east slope is not suitable for DS. There are people and cars right below the DS track!
