Turbine jet catches on fire in flight!

Turbine jet catches on fire in flight!

In this video taken at a New Zealand RC event, an A-10 turbine-powered jet catches fire while in flight! Excellent pilot skills and quick thinking get the plane down safely, and the ground crew’s quick work with fire extinguishers saves the model from further damage (thanks to Xjet for the YouTube video). So here’s this week’s question: are turbine jets the ultimate in RC flight or too complicated and dangerous for most pilots and fields? Tell us what you think.
