Those L/G are quite imposing and point to the era of design. Nice color scheme and congrats on the repair. Hopefully it won't impact itself like it did last time. Thumbs up!  Smiley

Trap door handle disguised as a vent. Magnet is strong and itís nearly impossible to open the hatch without a tool.

Final touches are in process. During the rebuild I added a couple inches to the fuselage for stability. I have flown it with this new configuration and logged a 45 second flight on 600 winds and two or three 100í circles Iím now finishing up a new covering job using Hodak medium weight fabric.

You're making great progress... as the old saying goes, "There are those who have crashed and those who are going to crash!"  Kinda unavoidable in this hobby!  But just part of the fun flying and building!  Glad your bird is going to fly again!

Just like the title says, she was comin in real hot dragging a wingtip with 75% of the motor tension left. Wingtip snagged forced the nose into the dirt, it snapped clean off.
