No the airframe is not damaged, luckily I did a good deadstick landing despite the tail heaviness. Basically, in flight the whole front end just exploded off, and everyone on the field heard it for sure. Upon landing, some people suggested that the bearings failed (which I got from ebay punchbuggies69 for $10) and made the shaft and the housing fail. But no one has that before. I couldnt find the front end with my nice spinner and everything because if the high grass at my field.
