    At least he wasn't flying inverted.

    At 140 ft that ACES seat must be pretty good for him to only
    sustain minor injuries. He must have had just enough altitude for
    the chute to deploy and fill.

    Ahh. Bummer, that. This explains why the leading edge slats were deployed.
    I've flown models into the ground under similar circumstances (it's why I'm
    so good at repairing models, and why I don't try flying the real things!).
    There's only so much lift you can get, ask for more and you just go splat.

    The "contributing factors" portion is interesting -- I suppose it's not
    exciting unless they're always almost crashing.

  8. It's a zero-zero seat (aren't they all today?).

  13. I read in sci.electronics.design that Ian Buckner
    I may try again. But I kept getting 404, whatever I tried.
