Back together and airworthy!

As you can see, the nose is pretty tweaked after putting it back together (tore in about 5 places) but oh well. I seem to have lost some prop/tail boom clearance possibly due to foam compression or something but hey, it's not hitting so we're good (maybe about 1mm clearance left though, yikes).

I also finally had to replace the stock rudder and elevator servos with some tower pro 9g that I had around and went to quick connects at the servo horns after cutting off the z-bends. I'm surprised at how long the stock servos actually lasted. The spoileron servos got replaced almost immediately and moved to the top after a clod of dirt took out one of the stock ones.

Oh, and I ended up trying low temp hot glue since I hadn't ever used it before and I heard it was good with EPO. It'll never sit in a hot car or anything, but we'll see how it holds up.
