Getting my evening flights in before bedtime and the battery dies just as it descends toward the fireplace .

Good news - it's just the wing and rudder - easy to replace... Whew...

Yes, Newbeflyer, like Icarus drawn to the sun, my foolish pride allowed my plane to be drawn towards the fire like a moth to a bugzapper, like a parkflyer drawn to a tree, like new tennis shoes drawn to dog poop, it goes on and on. Murphy will always win!

From now on, I'm shutting the glass door in front of the fireplace when couch flying! Who would have thunk that couch flying would be so hazardous .

I'm still recollecting that horrific moment when a little flame puffed the wing .

New wing and new rudder - Sharpied the rudder red in commemoration of the Red Tails, Tusceegee Airmen (recently watched the movie again).

Also, replaced the Plantraco 32mm prop with a PiccoZ/Havoc Heli tail prop for better thrust.
