Flight Of The Foamy

The foamy has flown, and crashed. It flew fine right after take off, it had lots of power for climb, and had a nice steady feel to it. The trouble came the seccond I tried to make a turn. The wing bent about 15 degrees upwards the seccond I applied aileron and it fully folded when I tried to bring her back to level. It snapped right at where the wing meets the fuselage which is also where the wing spar stops. I am really really mad I broke the prop because it cost me $12 to buy 2 props online as I couldn't buy them locally, so it was essentially a $6 propeller!!!

During the rebuild I am going to make a one piece wing with a FULL LENGTH spar. Also I am going to add some reinforcement, because in my plan to save as much weight as I could, I made it too weak for flight.
