I nose dived my plane like 3 different times into the dirt. With a little shop time i had mine back up in the air every time. These Flyzone planes have tough foam, that's why they are a little on the heavy side for foamies.
I concur they are tough airplanes. It was repaired several times, once it bent the prop shaft pretty badly, so I upgraded to the eflite 480 (I believe I may have said 450 previously) I had sitting around. Flew well over 100 flights. I broke things here and there, including the nose gear which is a real bear to replace. Great airplane which I gave away to a guy as spares for his. Technically I could have repaired it again, but I have other airplanes that need attention.

The hands down best flying airplane I have ever owned is the Bixler. All it needs is a stiff APC prop and it is a real machine. The Cessna still looks sexy though! I miss it.
