About a week and a half ago I was doing a flat spin and on the way down it lost control and found its way in front of the sun. I lost orientation; the crash was nose first. Needless to say the front of the fuse was demolished and the point of impact had the nose cone buried at least 2 or 3 inches into the soft earth. Once I realized everything else was undamaged I eventually ordered a new fuse from Banana hobby, free shipping. The jet is now back up and ready for a maiden, perhaps Monday because a hurricane has just passed us by here in South Florida and there is some considerable residual wind.
At this point I have three aircraft; the SU, Stuka and Airfield F-15 that are operational. I also still have the Walkera V450D01 in the black Airwolf body which is still flying.

There's Kitty, above, giving a pre-flight inspection of the black Airwolf.
