Whoops!
E-Flite Ultimate Wing broke in flight

Hey Guys, I got a chance to fly my E-Flite Ultimate today for the first time since I built it about 2 months ago. Anyway, I got it up quick using full throttle and took off in about 5 feet! Once I had it up about 150 ft or so. I pulled the power off a little and proceeded to trim it. When finished, I proceeded to power up and do a loop. Well, that's when the Ultimate hit the fan. The upper wing broke clean away from the plane turning the rest into a guided cruise missile. I was able to land it under control (HIGH SPEED). Anyway, the plane seemed to be a good flyer but I noticed the notorious pitch up mentioned in other threads. However, I have learned my bi-plane lesson. Anyway, I'm taking the equipment and putting it into my 3DFoamy G-202 Pro. I'm sticking to mono-planes for awhile until I get ready to try the bi-plane thing again. Let me know if anyone can relate or advise. Thanks
