So I walk over and tail is cracked through 80%+ and the front is broken at the windshield down both sides to the floor. Probably would have come off but I had put a 3/16 birch floorboard/stiffener to cover the electronics. It cracked too but held. I highly recommend either building one or order the stiffener Gary makes.
Sheared motor shaft...oh yea that was the maiden for the motor too again...

But not to fear, she will fly again. I just reglued the tail with gorilla glue. I'll let it dry over night and glue the nose tomorrow.
Just goes to show how tuff she really is.

Luckally I have a NIB Fun Cub that I will start on as soon as I can "Crash" up in the air again
Foam planes never die, they just get to heavy from all the repairs.
