Lost my Cessna this morning. It was the first flight since I broke the shaft. I've been flying my Kinetic. Went to the local park and winds were about 10mph. I taxied around to make sure everything was ok. Good thing I did because the 2 back wheels fell off because the nuts came loose. (I took the pants off)

I hand launched it and gave it some up elevator and it took off. The trim was spot on but it needed a little down elevator. Fly around high up for about 5 mins. On the leg down wind I didnt realize how close to tree line I was, as I began to turn, I heard a crack and saw my plane stop lol. The wing and the motor shaft broke. Everything else looked intact. Hopefully the wind will blow it down so I can go retrieve it
