    Thanks guys,
    Motors are ok, shafts ok, receiver ok. The batteries are "toast". Pretty smashed on the front end and one was shorted internally. So we just need new batteries and a bit of work to get the next one in the air.

    Cheers, JR

    That's disheartening to see it auger in on the first flight, whew! You built a beautiful looking plane! Those flying wings have always been a favorite of mine. Good luck building the second version and I look forward to seeing pictures and video of it!

    I've been out of the RC airplanes for a while now, but hoping to get back into it sometime.

    I remember as teenagers, my twin brother and I were into RC planes, scraping together enough money to run them. We had a trainer plane we flew a decent amount, and one time my brother was flying it, had it way up high and got disoriented with it. He literally augured it in with full throttle, full aileron (trying to save it), and disintegrated the plane. A big poof of dirt from a neighboring field was what indicated that it touched ground! We did salvage the nitro engine, and radio gear, and the tail feathers. Everything else was shredded!
    My brother was a good builder, but as a flyer, not so much.
    Now i'm working on big vehicle that's radio controlled, and thanks to my experience as a teenager with RC stuff has made this project feasible.

    Well the new one is about half done. It will be foam core with only 2 motors and the addition of two vertical stabilizers.
    When painted yellow on the top and gray on the bottom it should look something like the Northrup N9M.

    Neat chair, looks like it could go just about anywhere.

    Cheers, JR
