It got away from me six months ago and I couldn't find it. Someone found it, and returned it to me today. The battery is dead, the receiver works and the servos work. I can't get anything out of the motor. Question is; does anyone have any tricks on getting the plane apart? It's a bummer with it all glued like it is.
I just noticed that the three ESC leads have pulled out of the motor leads. The battery must have flown out of the plane when it hit the ground, and yanked the ESC forward. I'll just cut an access hatch, forward of the motor and reconnect them. I also see that the velcro has pulled off the ESC, so it is no longer stuck down. I am going to order a new canopy from Hobby People for $4.49

Hopefully, I'll be good to go after that.

Bill, depending on the type of glue you used if you have a large freezer you could stick it there overnight and then see if you can pull apart the glue.

Interesting. Never heard of that technique.
