Bummers... I know how the loss feels I've owned a pronto every since 1978.. gosh over half a dozen I guess i the 33 yrs... I always gave one away and started another shortly after...
Build both wings.. then ya'll have the best of both worlds

The bad news is the front of the plane turned into confetti and the engine (Magnum .15), fuel tank and fearless pilot figure were lost in field of acorn squash plants. After a decade and a half of service the plane went down flying as all great planes should, I've got no complaints.

I'll salvage what I can from the wreck and put it aside for Pronto #3. It looks like I'll have an extra building project for the coming winter. I've got a OS 25 FP and a Thunder Tiger .15 GP available but I'm leaning towards the .25 and maybe making a second wing with ailerons .. decisions decisions
