Bummer...but I'm sure you'll have her flying again soon.  I hate it when the only obstacle at the flying site is like magnetism to our aircraft!

Don't you hate it when you go out for some trim flying, do light winds and get a great first flight, then whack into a stooge on final?  Yeah, me too.

Been working on improving the Tempest's duration in anticipation of this month's WestFAC WWII mass launch.  I finally got around to replacing the diamond hook with a proper reverse S hook, and made up a new 6x24"x3/32" motor.  Wound it up to 2 oz-in for a test flight, got over 30 seconds with a nice left-right pattern and a smooth transition to glide, only to clip a stooge post at about 1 foot altitude.  Repairs will commence this weekend...

Cheers,

Mike
