RC plane gets diced by a real plane - video

A half-scale remote-control airplane collided with a real aircraft over a Colorado airport and exposed the growing tension between pilots and model aircraft enthusiasts and their ever-larger RC aircraft.

The collision between the real and $8,000, 46% giant-scale remote-control aircraft occurred on August 14th at a small airport in Brighton, C outside Denver. As you can see in the video below, the RC plane is hovering above the runway ten to 30 feet from the ground in a vertical position, with spectators nearby.

Suddenly, a single-engine biplane goes for a low pass over the runway and splits the RC craft in half. The full-scale aircraft suffered "significant" damage, but was able to land.

When lives are at risk those guys need to take their toys elsewhere.

According to Reddit and Reddit the RC guy was in the right, it was a closed runway where he was able to use his plane. It was the Biplane pilot who broke the law doing an illegal maneuver over a field where people were standing.
