And after repairs. Amazing how well this foam repairs. I dont think any amount of resin would have survivde this crash, makes me question the value of nose protection.
One aileron servo wire came loose. It was a pain to solder back on, solder would just not stick to the contact, even though I used 63/37 lead solder which flows really well.
It actually looks like it will look normal with replacement paint. No worries, I did the same thing to my micro!
