I'll have to admit I did make the repairs strong enough to make the plane flyable again, just in case, but it looks pretty bad at this point. It needs a new motor, cowling, wing struts, wires & springs, & a new cockpit. Too much time, effort & $$$ for new parts at the moment but maybe later...just maybe...
RCAV8TOR-Go alittle at a time in your purchases and repairs-then it won't seem such a bother. I know the wretched feelings after a mishap-that will come to pass and be replaced by the will to fly!!!
Chin up and cheers mate.-kevin
