Wow, that is in much better shape than my moth. I have almost that much time on mine and it has almost two tubes of epoxy on it. I push it to the limit though. Maybe I'll share what my moth has been through. I have painted it and sanded the paint off because it weighed too much, I have strapped a s300 and an 8x1600mah nimh for a couple flights(don't do it), I have taken it up as high as it possibly could go(I could barely see it - a speck) and sent it spiraling straight down and pulled back at the last second(broke two struts but I keep doing it). All this torture has broken the wings three times and the fuse twice. The dowel on the leading edge has even cracked twice. Mine now weighs 10oz with qc830's, pico gear, and m100. It still flies like a champ and is my favorite of nine planes.
