It's super easy to fly this thing inverted and I can fly it like that as long as I want to.

To fly inverted you basically roll the plane over on its back and then pretend that up stick is up and down stick is expensive

If this is your first time opening the fuse I would tape the decals first then slice through them with a fresh razor. I have never heard of the motor dropping onto the rudder servo......never know though! I would check clearances though once you have it open and when you take the top off just make reference to where your motor lead is on the board before un hooking it! If the rudder control rod slipped in flight the crash most likely put it back in place!

I know how to fly inverted but this bird seems to be losing altitude even with full down elevator.

You may need to pinch the U bend of the elevator control rod a little to compensate. Also, if you have the battery too far forward it may be too nose heavy. Move it back a little and see if it improves.

If they have come off at the brick someone good with a soldering iron can fix it.

If it broke in the middle or at the connector another connector on a set of wires can be soldered on even if you're not too good at soldering.

If RCBABBEL is still poking about he used to have connecterized leads, I might have an extra poking about, pm me with your address if you'd like it (if I have one).

did they break off the board ? any chance to solder them back on ? may have to look in the micro classifieds for a used one..or possibly a new one

Opening the fuse - tape a semi wide piece of tape wider than regular scotch tape the entire length of the fuse seam covering both the seam and the decals. Then you cut this same entire length with a razorblade to open. To close, a few pieces of scotch tape on top of the tape that you cut allows you to just pull tbe scotch tape off easily in the future if you ever need to get back in.

Flying inverted - I could never fly mine inverted. Needed way too much elevator and was way too twitchy and always wanted to flip back over and right itself. When I put a thin fiberglass 7 inch rod through the wing mount and taped the wings down, it completely flattened the wings. 0 dihedral. First flight I flew the entire battery inverted no problem. I have a 7% elevator deflection on 50% and higher throttle mix for level full throttle flight so I just added a 2nd mix on my DX6i to give 50% elevator deflection on trottle so I can just throw the switch any time I want to flip inverted. Now I have no need at all for giving down elevator when inverted. I just flip the switch and continue flying as usual but inverted.

Here's where I got the idea. I wouldn't push it through the bottom fuse. Just cut them into two pieces and go with the:
