Overweight model airplane crashes

This B-29 flown by old MacCrash Hodges, weighs more than 200lbs when it is fully loaded with fuel, smoke oil, and X1 parasite. It has been allowed to fly for many years even though it weighs more than the AMA LMA limit of 125lbs.  Hot day, high humidity, high density altitude, number 1 engine running bad, and appears to have limited rudder control. This is the 5th or 6th time he crashed one of these, and this time almost takes 10 peoples heads off. It was and Always has been way over the AMA weight limit. Anyone stating this plane weighed less than 125lbs is welcome to put up $10K and lets weigh it at the AMA Headquarters and live stream it. Oh never mind, it crashed again...but you can bring all the pieces and we can weigh those.
