So very sorry about the crashes...Just got back from our field where there were a couple of tough losses too, including a frightening "loss of signal" crash. The good news of the day was that I flew my falcon for the first time (for me) today. It flew like a dream, lifted beautifully off the grass with half flaps. E Flite retracts hung in there well after 2 flights. Only 25 percent left on my 6600 packs after 3 minute flights, but I was into the throttle quite a bit, fast passes 5 feet off the deck with no trimming needed on the first flight made for big smiles all around!

Is anybody making the retract covers? I've made them myself before but I was hoping somebody was making them. I think I'm going to try and repair mine, rather than buy a new airframe but I need a canopy (though I might try and repair it) and front wheel retract cover.

Canopies can be had from norray <norray9963@att.net>. I got one from him and they are first rate. When you say you are looking for retract covers, are you asking for the plastic pieces that you glue into the fuse (these are the ones that the strut and wheel retract into)?
