Actually my decision to go with the late paint scheme (black wings and horz. stab.) was probably it's undoing. She was in a climbing left hand turn and it flew in between me and the mountain and the wings just 'disappeared' against the terrain, I didn't didn't even realize she was rolling until I saw the vertical fin pointing down! I punched it and pushed over to get some altitude but she stalled.

I looked her over, all of the front end work held up fairly good, but the fuse blew out just aft of the doublers! I also tore off a flap and dented a wing but there isn't a scratch on the aft fuselage / tail!

She's probably rebuildable but after all that work I'm just not ready to get that deep into it just yet. So I've got a Flyzone Beaver (sorry) on the way and I'm just about ready to order FunCub No. 2 (I've got plans for her)! ~ Robin

PS - And yes there was a keychain camera along for that last flight!
