You'll be pleased to know that it's all glued back together dried out and ready to go!

No but I'm interested in putting flaps on my 2nd model.

If I do I'll let you know!

That last flight was kinda brief. I never doubted that you'd have her ready again. Good old foam!
Time for a visit to HK now.

Hope this helps. Love this plane - still trying to figure out why they discontinued it? Thoughts?
So's I slip out for a quick fly before dark and DOH!

That servo was stove up tighter'n a drum!

So's I did a quick search and found this post!

You guys are the best!

This will prolly keep that servo from dying again!

Hope all is well in your worlds!

EDIT: I found THIS on the thread. Lets see if it's waterproof!

A5 in flight

All the plastic cockpit material, about 6 oz has been removed.
A 2200 ma 3S is used.
The model flies with very little up trim.
No flaps, all original equipment. The ESC has not burned out yet.
