Was a bit nose heavy for maiden flight. Didnt really have a chance to enter a spin, it all went bad on climb out, I was only about 30 feet off the deck.

Well I've noticed a little crack in a few places on the wing

TOTAL REBUILD TIME

Just because I can, I'm seriously thinking of covering the wing with carbon fiber (stock covering already removed for repair work) and painting the fuse bright pink. Should definitely make a statement at the field! All my current fleet is grey or camo so looking for something a bit left field.

Well here are some progress shots of the resurrection!

Here's the fuse all back together with all the cracks/gaps filled in





I wasn't happy with some of the finish on the fuse originally so I gave it two heavy coats of spray putty then blocked it back all the way just to fill in some of the low spots.



It's now sitting in the shed with the first coat of primer on it. More pics to follow later
