A very vague post of the Post crash report.

Did you have any control of the airplane or did it appear you lost radio contact.
Did you have enough speed during the hand launch. Slow speed = spiral in.
Was the motor running at full power during launch.
Was the controls working after the crash.
Did you have fully charge batteries.
Was this the first flight or has it flown fine before.
Was it Windy.
Have you flown before.
Did you have any help from someone experience.
Is the airplane balance or possible tail heavy.

Keep your chin up. We have all be there.

A fellow club member, always crash his Wing Dragon. Yesterday he retired the model. Where have you bought it? It should be possible to get spare parts for such a common model. Google is your friend there. We need more info. and maybe a picture of the damages, before you can get help. We all crash sometimes, you are in good company.

Suggest you first spend a little time reading about models that are suitable trainers over in our Beginner Training forum - http://www.rcgroups.com/beginner-tra...ft-electric-8/
.. before you buy anything else!
