Rodger,

The Crash was a good thing, cause I came up with an idea of building a door, as a batter hatch, but I don't have any Idea's for a lock to the door yet

Gary, I feel your pain... but you have to admit, you know it's a good crash when you shatter your spinner! I've accomplished that with aluminum as well

Nope... But if I did that to what I fly, my boss would be pretty pissed. I think the FAA would have a few questions for me too...

Well, I (unfortunately ) can ad my 2 cents worth. Tis happened to my trainer on about my 25th flight back in August. I'm almost done with the new and improved version.

How about this one!

All the expensive bits survived, and the wing and tail section were basically undamaged, apart from some tears in the covering.

All repaired now and flying just as good as before :-)
(maybe a few grams lighter)

Paul, how the blankety blank did you get it lighter after repairs? All of my planes gain in the area of 10 to 25% more weight through getting repaired!
