Default Lost my stryker today

One of my favorite planes bit the dust. The Eflight esc burned up hard during flight, I lost power and boom right into the ground. Foam busted in a few places so I may be able to get her glued up. Still my daily plane is out of action for a while.

Bummer, sorry to hear that. We have cracked ours up more than one time pretty hard and have been able to repair it every time. It probably has enough epoxy weight in it to change the CG!

Replacement fuses are not toe expensive for that bird.

Good luck getting her back in the air.
