Yep. They'll be just fine. We'll see on the next flight if my '900s were good enough to survive a water dunking.

Well I have to admit I was wrong about the DW Foamie. I thought for sure this thing would be junk the first time it hit the ground.
It's like a Timex watch. "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
I've ripped the fuse in half 4 times, broken the wings into twice, busted both ailerons a few times and compleatly smashed and shattered the nose a couple of times.
Hot glue, Gorilla Glue, CA some tape and a little carbon fibre and it still flies just fine even though it's up to 22oz. AUW. Too bad I can't say that about the pilot.

+1 for sure!! Thanks DWF I've learned so much about flying 3D planes, as my main focus is helicopters. They are quite forgiving :-)

my last 40" juka was crashed and repaired with only CA about a dozen times. But it kept going until a chain link fence finally put it in a permanent resting place.

Well, re-maiden on the Extra 330SC this evening and it went pretty well. Can't thank Mike enough for all the support. We have some tweaking to do and the gear are a little flexee as you will see by the endo on landing but Aaron had a blast flying it. Looks like a 3D monster as the high rate throws are approx 75 degrees on elevator and the rudder will take as much as the elevator will give it. Ailerons are much much better and no blowback now thanks to Mike. So, here you go, Enjoy!
