Flying great, a little too fast and a little too low, trimming it out around 100 foot or so up coming at me. just getting her level at about half trottle. Next thing I know it is going straight at the ground, shut the throttle and pull up...... too late.....ow.... thought it would mayb be a bit scrubbed at the front.....

That'll buff right out.



Seriously, just glue it back together and it should be fine, these things can take a beating.

yeoch!::o

It's really not that bad though. Let it sit for a day or two and then come back to it. You'll look at it differently then, your pride won't be hurting as bad either so you'll see it more clearly.

Straighten the nose up a bit and glue her all up and the motor mount will fit right back in there too. Me and my son both have knocked our motor mount out just like that. We epoxied that area back in and it is stronger now more than ever!

Let us know how it turns out. Good luck!:D

little epoxy and it'll be back up in half an hour.
