Ordered a long ez 46 from raidentech. The plan is to transplant the power system from the rv8.

After getting back into rc in 2007, I'd gone through five planes and five helicopters and sold them all in working order. This was not to be for the rv8. It threw a prop during a spin recovery. Too high for a normal upwind landing, but probably too low for a 360, I turned downwind to put it in the tall weeds. Things were looking good right up until a previously unseen PVC post jumped up and hit my plane, impacting the right wing at the root. The airframe is a goner but the electronics can be salvaged.
