Thanks man!

Yeah the side of the fuse where the wing connects had a few pieces cracked off, 2 formers inside were cracked in 3 places each as well. I forgot to take pics of the inside of it. All in all, I would say it held up better than I would have expected. I agree, I think that crash would have caused me to have to buy another airframe if it was any other brand.

This was my first time doing a real balsa repair which involved removing and re covering the repaired areas. I'll be honest, I don't know why I was so afraid to get my hands dirty with balsa. It's actually really easy to work with, and the covering cleans everything up really nice. I'm not wising for another accident, but now at least I am confident I can handle a repair job if it came down to it. I still feel like I want to get a spare airframe just in case, I really do like this airframe quite a bit.

At this point all that's left is to inspect the servos and re hinge the aileron.
