My ParkZone Cub, my first, my easiest flying, my most crashed plane is in more pieces than ever before tonight.

------------Moment of silence for the Cub------------

I was towing a little balsa glider for my neighbor's boy's science project, and somehow it got twisted in its cradle, stalling the Cub's wing. The plane nosed over, picked up speed, and at the last second I regained elevator authority in time to pancake it into the terra firma...

Greenace, if you're reading this, yours looks brand new compared to this thing.

I feel your pain. Time heals all wounds.....and sometimes foam and balsa.

I spent my weekend and a ton of epoxy fixing this little plane. On the upside, I think it will fly again. Unfortunately, I toasted the battery, so it's going to be a while before I know for sure.

Sorry to hear about your crash, Crash... :<:
Well it sounds like you have gotten a lot of enjoyable flights out of it. and here you are repairing it again. So, other than a new battery the ol' girl may still have a few flights left .....eh. Good luck..
