Good on the flying....sounds great...too bad about the wing, couldnt have been built too well, there's a lot of load on wings, especially when pulling out of dives.

grab the ends of the wing and pull it against your chest until it flexes an inch or so.... if it doesnt snap you should be fine in the air.

look at it this way. when what's his name built all those sig seniorita's for SIG ARF's and tried to sell them to sig. sig denied them for lack of build quality. (wings were folding). so he had to sell them to nitroplanes/hk/etc.

that story reminds me of one of the WWII Dog Fights Series I used to watch - while in a dog fight, an Allied pilot is chasing after a German ME109 (I think...). The allied pilot is right on his tail spraying him with bullets. The German pilot banks left and pulls hard on the stick. The allied pilot follows, but managed to pull in front of him (in terms of his sight, not that he overshot), and starts spraying with his cannons. The bullets pierce both wings on numerous places, in a straight line, on both sides of the fuse parallel to it. This weakens the wings a lot and being in a turn with all the G-Forces on them, they just fold over the guy's canopy like paper. The plane drops to the ground packed like a gift basket....
