The fuse is still straight, I'd try gluing it back together while waiting for a fuse to get instock. Foamies go back together really well in most cases.

Amain says they will have them in early November.

Yep - the fuse is cracked behind the wing root but if I can remount the motor inline it will be ok

the wing will be tougher to fix but I'm going to try - scraps and gorilla glue ....

Then I can practice more knife edge ... Higher next time
:-)

Actually I quite like it myself (really), this is just a general observation about what other people think of the plane. Yes I even like the gray canopy!

As for visibility, I haven't done anything to the plane. So far the dullish trim has allowed me to see it in every situation - save on one occasion, where I almost lost it against a backlit cloud coming down from a hammerhead. I don't think no colorful livery would have helped ! (I just trusted the plane to be oriented as I expected it to be... Lucky me it was).

I doubt it was the color scheme

After all thats just a label kit they sell for $20
a new label kit would have fixed the issue
if it were just the colors

If we all had the same tastes, there would be far less RC planes available.
Isn't it great to have so much to choose from in this hobby ?

After more than a year of flying my Artizan, I still don't regret buying a spare (still in the box),
I'm hoping i don't need to open the box anytime soon.

I did the same
Bought my first as the model was being discontinued

The remaining stock was discounted
Glad to have backup now that I've crashed the first one

I've had mine since May, I regret not getting a spare... This hobby really has come far just in the short time I've been flying. Almost turning into computer progression, as soon as you buy it something better is about to release.

If anyone has trouble with nose overs, just 180 your LG. That's what I did and have yet to have a nose over since.
