Thanks Anton, Not bad for a rookie, huh ? I don't know how much it's been flown but it was in pretty rough shape by the time it got to me .

The winglets were thrashed so I bought new ones, and the re-cover was definately needed. There were tears in the bottom of the wing. I had to cut out a small ball of foam and put some epoxy at the end of one of the brass spar tubes because the foam had been crushed from pushing the spar in too far and caused a lump in the covering. The tape was pulling away from the nose. There was just an array of things.

I'm not badmouthing anyone but we definately need to look at it before it gets sent to the next person, especially if this little baddie has a few more miles ahead of it . I'll send the blue and gold tape with it for repairs, taping across the wing, closing the receiver cover, etc.

I hope to get pics and vid of her in the air soon.

Dave
