What shape is the port wing in? The fuse looks like a 20 minute fix job.

The wings don't even have a scratch. They are fine. I am going to peel the covering back and see what it looks like. I have never attempted repairing one of these before but have built lots of planes so we'll see... The wing tube broke off clean which I though was weird.

That looks familiar...

I need to do something. I'm very confused and of course frustrated with all the crashes lately.

Eas that the cause of the crash, or a result of the crash?

BTW - there's no snow on the ground, and you were flying......doesn't sound like you had that bad of a day!

I would suggest an A9 but the DX7 was/is a good radio. I just wonder if you have a loose connection on the antenna or something causing signal problems.

Depends on your esc. I use one on mine, but I'm running a Phoenix esc not an ICE

I've currently got an ICE 100 in my 51...but that coming out to go in something else, and a Hacker 70 SB Pro is going back in. I'll be putting a CC 10 BEC on that since the Hacker won't do 6 volts.

Well, I guess I have the time now to investigate. Inventory was just moved up a week, so I will miss the Richardson Fly-In. I am considering different radios, but not looking forward to replacing all the receivers either. we'll see what happens the next couple of days..

I started the new 51 last night, and dang doesn't this orange look goooooooood!
