Magnetic wing.

I have made a profound scientific discover-e.

The larger motor you add to your flying wing, the more attracted it becomes to metal, specifically power poles.:p

I was testing my 48" zagi with an NTM 35-36 1400 kv motor with an 8x8 prop on a 3 cell 2200. Cruise at one click of throttle. I was making a speed run, and in an 80 degree powerdive, when I realized that I had just gone behind the lines. I pulled up, and grazed 2 sets of powerlines, before slamming into a power pole.
I damaged a perfectly good 2200 too!:mad:


As my professor once said, the Science has always been there you just need to discover it. I didn't understand what he meant until I read your post :) Bad luck bro, go cut some balsa wood and forget about it.
