Thanks guys for the responses. Yea I Had some rough flights due to rain and the plane now has rigging wires(string really) on the rudder to keep it straight and stable due to a bad crack. A paint Mixin stick under the elevator ducttape on there cause of half of the elevator breaking. I will eventually order new tailassembly as thas all I need to get it back to great shape but as long as it still flies I am happy! Will get another one this coming weekend . Also, Is it safe on the foam to use spray paint?

"Welcome to the money pit" had me laughing. No, rather Welcome to a Society of People who just happen to enjoy flying model aircraft. It's nifty when you get that first flight under your belt. Couldn't have picked a better plane to start out with.
Enjoy Flying!
