Luna Repaired!

It's taken a bit longer than expected due to ending up in hospital but thanks to Tony my Luna is fixed Just need to reinstall the electronics and she's ready to go, hopefully next couple of days. Fantastic repair, you can't see where the damage was.

Cheers,

Rory

Nice to see, all repaired and ready to fly again, hope you are too and the hospital stay wasn't too serious.
finally i was able to fly the past two days, just a couple of flights but good ones, the 1110 and 2200 4s giving 100mm cg easy enough

Bad idea! Your esc now has to work a lot harder, getting hotter, than if you left it flat out
