Sorry to hear the plane crashed. 

If I understand you correctly it sound like you directly tried auto2 with default gains on a new plane? If that is correct, please understand however that a new plane with a not often used sensor like the Sparkfun IMU, especially on a more difficult and dynamic platform as the funjet needs a step-wise careful testing. 

see: I added a quick-start guide.

Hi all
I just tried my first flight today and it didn´t go as well as I had hoped for. After switching over to auto 2 the plane did loose altitude and crashed. I am using Sparkfun Sen 10121 IMU and tiny V/2.11 on a funjet airframe, it looks like when I am testing the IMU in auto2 that its working fine according to PDF window but the servos are for the ailerons are not moving much, in fact very little. Is that normal?
