    Old Grayson motor,I knew it had issues on start up but was fine under constant power but gave up in a loop and it took a hard belly flop.I might resolder thier connectors to see if it corrects the problem,if not I'll use the magnets for hatch covers.

    I would rather just cut out the bad and replace it than build a whole other plane,I fixed this with scraps.

    You couldn't crash it like that ? Or fix it like that Bimo ? It gets easy after a while and I alway's have to try after putting so much work into it in the first place.:cool:

    Damn! The repairs are almost better than the original:) Like they say with house renovations - its sometimes easier to knock it down and rebuild than modify:D

    Beautifully! I need to change the prop as the three blade was a bit inefficient. Very happy boy. I'll try to get some video today without dumping it with my sausage fingers! Yes, elevons are huuuuge!
