I'll prob. get out and do another flight on mine this weekend. So far I've been real happy with the wing mod. as I was able to move the CG back quite a bit. I do wish now I'd picked up a spare. Bet they will show up again.

Take care -- Stacker
I too am planning for the "just in case"...... I have a Maxjet and a Lanxaing waiting, along with a Hobbylabs. I hate to jinx it, but my pusher prop version has lasted me for a great number of flights. The only mishap was right after the maiden where I ground up one side of the nose on a landing. I think it's due to how light the whole thing is without the twin edfs and no landing gear. It can literally float at lower throttle levels.
