Post some videos I got mine way to slow on landing like you did and didnt get as lucky as you so I decided to do the sabre dance ,luckily there was only a little damage broke the navigation light lens and scraped up the wing The head wind was a little more than I expected and was late on the power to save it It got real slow in a hurry But she's ready to fly again this weekend I have to say this is one of the best looking birds in the air

Well that is a better result than any form of CS12 setup seems to get!
Costly.... but a better output per power result.

Hmmm... $290..... motor, housing..... fan...... not bad value really, considering the components. Throw in the assembly balancing etc..... = good value.
(still costly, LOL)

I could really take a video of styrospraying the plane. But this would really be just like watching paint dry... No, unfortunately the remaiden will take another week or so. After the styrospraying I need to sand down, put everything back in place, make sure everything still works, and back to the air... I may actually first put a coat of primer before I fly, as the "raw" styrospray color is really ugly... Too ugly to fly... I'm afraid that the sky would reject the plane...

"The sky rejected my plane" will be my new phrase for a crash.
