well i took the trusty trojan and extreme stick out today and flew the stick first had a good flight and landed safely then went to fly the trojan and found that the fusalage joiunt at the tail was coming apart so that was grounded while we reglued it with some epoxy, so refueled the stick and then noticed an exhuast bolt had dissappeared strike two my brother had been flying his laser with a saito 80 upfront he went for a fourth flight start up and the engine started rattling strike three. my brother and my mate went home i stayed and decided to fly the trojan as i had two full batts and the glue had dried. being an over confident dumb thumbed idiot i managed to crash it for the first time, i have had it for nearly a year so it was overdue. she hit the ground with a loud thump for a bit of foam and i thought it was curtains strike four. went to collect bits and found she was in one piece the wing had pulled out of its mounting and one wheel had pulled out of the wing, so packed up and went home to effect repairs, mixed up some epoxy and went to fit the leg and plate back in the wing spread the 5min epoxy in the hole and then couldnt find the leg it had dropped down behind my flight box found it just in time to slap in in place doncha just love this sport
