... I built the grey Rafale twin in 2003 and flew it for nine years

It was time to retire it, it had numerous issues:

worn out geartrain on the servos lead to excessive play in the elevons, retracts had accumulated a ton of dust and grime, nosegear steering worn out, electrical wiring started to peel, chipped blades on both fans, one wemotec plastic spinner exploded last week etc.

I took all the electronics out and will hang the nine-years old overflown airframe in the attic
