Yes, it came from the scoop set but not sure of the size.
It is in the original grill location.

We'll give it a shot, felt a little silly such a small order.

Next debate is whether to fly the 3s version with the chunk missing from the right rear corner of the elevator, buy a new elevator, or strip the gear. Might say the hell with it.

Flew it with the chunk out of the tail, flew fine. If anything I'll cut the break clean and mirror it on the other side. At least the outboard hinge is still intact.

Flying buddy hand launched it with two steps and a heave, it almost skimmed the ground before it got moving enough to go. The added tape and glue in repairs seems to have made it a bit heavy and sluggish to launch. The lipo also was one of my older 20c turnigy I think. So it wasn't super fast but it flew in 10-15 mph wind so it stays on the roster for wind.

The red 4s will be built soon.
