Help!
Fox 2.3m powered glider motor board replacement

I have crashed this plane so many times, I need to reconstruct the front end. Original motor board placement busted up. I am thinking about cutting off the nose right at the point where the original motor board was mounted and using a piece of luan plywood as a new motorboard. Does anyone know if this will work or will this ruin the aerodynamics of the plane.

Sure, go ahead. You can make a new nose from a foam coffee cup to replace what you cut off.

After landing in a Lacrosse net and putting some new angles in the wings my FOX never flew right again. It was prone to fall out of the sky.
New wings and body from Nitroplanes made everything right again. http://www.nitroplanes.com/93a2501-2...r-rtf-24g.html

Never mind, I see they are out of stock.

Thanks for that info. My problem exactly, plane falls out of the sky. I figured I would try to fly this plane one more time with repairs before I purchased new wings and fuselage.
