Well after a bad crash with my poor ole MagpieAP, see MagpieAP thread, a friend of mine took some balsa, sandwiched the nose together and we have been flying it for the last few days. I am basically using it to learn the characteristics of the plane a little better before throwing it up with an expensive camera now. So here is a little video of what we did today...I am the one flying at the beginning. Gerry, my friend is doing the flying after that while I video.

Hell, from the video you cant even tell it was crashed. I'd say your back in business. Its not a bad thing to have a couple planes laying around anyways.

I wonder if anyone has ever put an easystar wing on one of these......hmm

Yeah..that landing was tough..the wind was whipin at the time above the houses...came in and when I dropped down below the fence line it came whippin from a different direction...Camera looking straight down is NO GOOD...makes you sick to your stomach

Good flying and I liked the song too!:) Reminds of a song called "Spirit in the Sky", I don't know who sings it but they might have a lawsuit there!
