ST Model DG1000 EPO Brushless Glider-power pod salvage

After repairing the power pod supports twice, I almost threw the glider out
after a 3rd crash, but thanks to a piece of coat hanger wire, I have a permanent
pod, and a MUCH lighter glider. That retract system has a lot of hardware.
The lighter glider thermals better, and the freewheel prop doesn't affect the
deadstick glide at low airspeed; but sure helps diving out of killer thermals.

The forums talk about other gliders that are less hassle, but I like the scale
appearance of the DG 1000
