Luckily I decided to use all my crappy electronics on the plane so there are no $50 digital servos damaged. But the resulting impact of the crash has totalled the weak foam fuselage and has also left the metal motor mount bent, which I "un-bent" to its normal shape. Motor was not too badly damaged (interestingly) as it nosed into a patch of grass on loose soil. This officially puts an end to the TB-20's short-lived 5-year service (during which 3 years it spent "dormant").

On a lighter note, my PC-6 is almost finished covering. Unfortunately, to my great distress, I cannot find the cockpit windshield. Maybe somebody in the house threw it away as trash thinking the plastic piece was nothing useful. Time to somehow devise a contraption to enable me to create a replacement...
Great pic minivation, sad moment wasn't it.
