    Link: Launching an RC Jet Airplane - Awesome work by the cameraman and the last-minute diver. Not so great work by the genius with the remote control.

    It looks like the jet hit a rock or small ditch in the soil before it jumped off course. They probably shouldn`t have tried to take off from a grass field...

    I fly RC Planes... I`m no expert, but it looks like the erratic take-off was caused by the rough terrain turning the plane slightly away from the down-wind, delaying lift until the (good) pilot corrected using rudder.
    The sudden left banking while leaving the ground is typical flare.

    Why didn`t they all just stand behind the plane when it was taking off? Or at least not so close.

    ^^ i believe they expected lift off before it happened.

    i dont blame the pilot, he was trying and its hard to do on a grassy bumpy field. let him have another shot on a parking lot and itll be much easier and precise.

    That almost sliced to guy in half - He was either trying to look like a wannabe James Bond or he was drunk. And I agree with Gammon_Rod. You can hear the pilot say sorry after he almost kills 15 people.

    It really is their fault, considering they decided to take off from the grass.

    It`s still the pilot`s fault. He should`ve checked the ground was safe before even starting the engine. He should`ve told everyone to move as well.

    All RC clubs use grass fields. However, normally people are standing much farther away from the runway.

    The remote has a 1 mile range, so usually you taxi the plane to the runway, which is at least 100 feet away from any person, and then take off.
