SUCH a beautiful plane.. I'm happy I finally got one...
EDIT: In the 2+ years that it flew I managed to ding both wing tips, rip the landing gear out twice, destroy the cowl twice, break the windshield twice, smash the firewall out completely, break the battery tray, crush the leading edge of one wing, poke two holes all the way through the wings, bend three or four pairs of landing gear, knocked the motor box off of the firewall, and I'm sure I'm missing some things. I have always repaired it but since it is one of my most flown airplanes with probably close to 400 flights, I decided to go ahead and replace the airframe.
In January of 2011 I moved all of my electronics to a brand new Taylorcraft. It's awesome to see it all shiny and new again.
