    One thing I would highly recommend is to swap out the elevator servo for a metal geared one..

    stripped mine today on the down side of a loop and crash into a tree after a 150 foot dive,no way of pulling out.

    tore the landing gear and wing off , engine detached it's self from the fuse as it went through the branches of the tree.

    Gutted is not the word I used . .

    Oh S**T.

    or words to that effect
    Must be a lot of strain on that servo.

    Could of just been a weak servo too start with.
    I had read on RCGroup Forum WOT4 Foam-e thread , that alot of the guys swap out the stock servos or
    buy the other WOT4 Foam-e where you have to add your own servos

    So I'll be glueing this one back together , but all so I'll order another one aswell , and some metal geared servos .

    All Gorilla Glued back together ,
    with few wooden skewers to hold the nose on..

    Swapped out the rudder servo for a better one and fitted a new metal geared servo for the elevator.

    waiting on a new cowl and 11x7-e prop.

    So should be flying again at the weekend..




    Allso ordered another new WOT4 Foam-e and some metal geared servos..
