MelbourneUAV Outback Challenge entry goes down hard

Sorry to see this. It was a beautiful bird (see below). It used the AttoPilot autopilot. 

From the team's Twitter feed

We had an RC Lockout in Maunal Mode at 25M AGL while coming into land on Saturday. More photos on the website soon :(

Thats bad...

I will do what ever I can to ship a new X8 frame to you. The only problem is I only have the EPS foam version and thats just not good enough without glass fibre reinforcement. The EPO version of the X8 will be ready within one month, but I guess thats too late.

Chris, it shows that you clicked on "Like" the blog post.  I guess it looks like you "like" the UAV crash.  I'm sure that's not the intent.
