Should be airborne within a week!?
How many flights did you have on it before this....well,incident happaned ? My heart goes out to ya man.....but on an up note,i have always found that planes fly better after a good repair job....Or the pilot just flies it harder cause it finally got it's first whipping into the ground...I don't know,it's one of the two ...and good luck on the fix.

You are right voodoo child!
this plane has been in my fleet for over a year and never crashed before.... I repaired it last night with resin and its all good now, just need a new elevator servo and then I am good to go and as you say I will fly it harder next time....
I just hope I have glued the tail on straight!!!

oops, missed half a page of replies

Thought you were thinking of Mr Fu, sadly repairs are not his game anymore. Glad you sorted it tho.

Then again Luke, if you want another Voodoo there's one on BMFA. Untouched kit, £200 +p&p. I didn't think they were that hard to get hold of, order, wait a few weeks then bingo?

Thanks!

Only thing I don't like about Hoellen is when you add to the basket and then do the shipping, it's always vague, with possible huge amounts added later for 'bulky items'.

Looks like Hoellen don't have them in stock. And I think they tend to get more expensive in US. On top of that the shipping should logically be more expensive. Wan't the kit manufactured somewhere in the Tjeck republic?
