Only the bottom wing, one strut, and one cabane broken. She'll live. Will buy parts as they become available and stitch her back together.
Oh no! Is this the new one you had on the way?

I found it a hindrance to my flying style and my other planes are big enough to be stable on their own....and not made of foam.
That is great! I'll get more info tomorrow, and thanks.

Gary; I'm getting ready to put together my Albatross. Are there any other areas that might benefit from reinforcement, while I'm assembling it? Thanks; Ernie P.
Ernie,
The only other thing I did was to put a couple of drops of UHU POR under the stab as it seemed a bit loose. I have over 120 flights on my Alby and it is still going strong. I use 1800mah Parkzone lipos as my 2200's make the plane nose heavy.

I sent you a message, if it went through....my "crash" prop was out of balance, so I weathered a MA 12x6 tonight.

Nice work! I got your pm. I'll stick it in the mail either tomorrow or monday. Search around rcg for set up questions/tips. There's a couple of good youtube videos out there as well. The directions can be a little difficult to understand if you haven't set up a plane gyro before. Just make sure you can access the pots when you install it.

I mounted mine upside down under the bottom wing. It is not too noticeable.

Others have mounted the Guardian under the machine gun....better looking but tougher to adjust.

Jim

Thanks a ton, if you stick a prop in the package, I'll woodgrain and / or weather it and send it back to you.
