Extreme Flight 58" Extra 300 after catastrophic crash !

Here's a reconstruction build log .... for those who think a bad crash is only worth the trash-can .... well I disagree !!

This happened after the Curse of Todays RC world failed .... CA Hinges ! They are great until they get old and tired - then they crack / become brittle ... and as happened here - the elevators just fell off straight after take-off when I gave some stick to pull nose up ...

The thread (saves me retyping / posting photos again !!)

Its still ongoing ... so check back at times ....
