My Formosa-II is ready for re-maiden following its crash. Maybe Thursday morning? Foam repair was near-perfect. Fuselage decals were trashed... haven't re-done that yet, gotta scrounge and see if there's an old set around, or maybe I'll work something up with stick-on material or a paintbrush.

Motor, electronics and servos were unharmed. I'll be using a different receiver, though, this time a knock-off AR-6200. AUW is still an alarming 40 oz., which makes for 15.6 oz/sq.ft. loading. Sucker needs to move fast.

UPDATE: It flew great. Three flights, no mishaps. 10x10 prop, 3S/2200 battery. Looks good in the air. Will look better after I fix up the fuselage decorations. Happy to have a Big Mosa back in my fleet.
