Well that's what you get when you dork a Slow Stick into a metal light pole. Was practicing landing approaches and kinda misjudged the distance to the pole. Mr. Slow Stick hit that darned pole dead center with the motor! Made a really neat sounding CLANG! kinda like an aluminum baseball bat connecting for a homer!

Sadly the photos of the thing coming down in a rain of bits and the resultant carnage didn't get saved to the camera somehow. :(

Anyways, other than trashing the motor and gearbox the only other real damage was the front wing mount. That was in 4 or 5 small bits. The tail also got broke off but that is a simple repair. thankfully the wing didn't get a scratch!
