The model was flying circuits at a registered aeromodel site in the Phoenix Park in Dublin. After a take-off, which followed a normal circuit, command of the model was lost. The model then flew off in a North-east direction. When its fuel was exhausted, the model glided to earth, and landed on the new link taxi-way near the threshold of Runway 28 at Dublin Airport.
The report finds that the probable cause of the loss of command was the exhaustion of the receiver battery.
