That's smart. Too good to fly?

^^^ No idea what that means...but I'll say it is now good enough to fly. No more jittery throttle control; 75% throttle input actually results in 75% throttle, not 100% as it did with the FM setup the plane came with. No more noisy servos; the control movements are quick and precise.

Can't wait to fly this weekend.

What motor and prop are you using?
If it's all stock you may have a bent prop shaft causing vibration and shattering the prop.

I've only experienced damage at the prop tips, but that has always been due to ground contact. In fact, even after damaged the props never showed any signs of wear other than at the tips.

Do you think I coud be tightening the prop nut to tight? Putting stress on it?

That is a possibility. Over tightening could be cracking the hub without you seeing it. What make and type of props are you using? I always 'dead stick' my landings, the SC glides OK.

In my experience a broken prop or bent prop shaft is a result of the prop hitting an object while spinning for example having a mid air with a unsuspecting bird or running into a tree. I'm on my 3rd prop shaft after the previous one broke when I tried to fly it with 2 props on the shaft. TOOOOOO much torque and not enough support.

I use to always dead stick it in but I found out (at least for me) it was better to have it at a quarter throttle ish and it makes perfect glass landings:thumbup:

I love mine. This is the first plane and I learned a lot when it was 3 channel. I recently rebuilt it and added a few things. I added a 3/16 carbon rod across the top lentgh of the wing, filled with gorilla glue which I later trimmed and put white duct tape over. I also set some weights on the wing to take some dyhedrial out but still has a little bit left. It will fly upside dow as far as I can see it

Descriptions are in the pictures.

How's it fly with all the added weight, zepol?

Nice work.
