warning!!!!

ok guys and gals, WARNING, "REPLACE THOSE CHEAP WING BOLTS"

yup that's right, literally flew a wing off, pulled one of the wing bolt's out on going into a knife edge spin! ended up in a flat spin, with one wing in the vertical position!

been doing that maneuver all day, just put the wings back on, and stripped a wing bolt in flight! it is repairable I think, but snapped the fuse in 1/2 right in front of the wings! from there back is fine, including the wings, not sure about the landing gear, folded one side over, will never be the same!

until that moment, I was seriously loving this plane!

oh and yes, finally got the OS61fx tuned in, and flying like a champ! then this happens!

just got back from hobby shop, got some more glue, "JET medium"

and some 1/32 bass wood, having already ordered neon green covering, and already having, white and black, I should have all I need ta have her back in the air and looking good!

although she will never be brand new again, I am hoping she will fly as good, and be even stronger!
