| My mention of not flying near power lines comes from numerous augers | club members have had when flying near high voltage lines at our | field.
Well, power lines do sometimes emit RF noise, even without BPL. Once you can track it down, the electric company will usually act very quickly to fix it, but it's often not easy to track down. Your local hams may help if you're having problems with this (doesn't sound like you are.)
| An interesting side note is the power lines are a long way from the club's | normal traffic pattern, and perhaps the incidents were caused more by | visibility/orientation issues, than radio interference.
Could be. | Of course in most R/C clubs, a crash is invariably caused by radio hits.
You've noticed that too, huh? :)
I once flew my sloper flying wing into a power line. It bounced off, recovered, no damage done, and I kept flying, being more careful not fly that far down anymore :)
On the other hand, this picture --
was sent to me by a poster here -- I'll bet that was a sight to watch!
