BTW Perry I had my first crack up. Was taking off and just as I got airborne she snapped to the left and broke the wing off from tip to the first engine.

Fuse managed to be spared and it's a good thing too after putting the new clear nose on with all the interior details.

Wing and nacelle was repaired in one night.

Upon inspection of the equipment to find the cause I found that the RX antenna came loose at the receiver.

I account this too placing the plane upside down in the cradle to mount the wings over two years.

Since the ant was attached to the tail, when placed in the cradle it would stretch the antenna. Could of been worse and I'll never do that again.

I hate it when that happens! At least she wasn't a total write off. I am replacing my antenna with one of those new Litennas to prevent this sort of problem in the future. Check out the thread here:
