Salvaging a foam plane

My Airfield Tempest 800mm (31) Warbird would just never fly right. It only had one battery and a dedicated Tx that took 8 AA batteries. When it did a destructive nose dive it had enough cracks and bent motor shaft that I was done with it.

The electronics came out easily enough. It was like stripping out the nervous system of some kind of dead robot. The control rods were very long and thin. The ESC was more like a motherboard. However I was impressed with the multiple inputs on the receiver and the string servers.
