    RE: Gee Bee Crash

    Don't be too bummed. I have power lines about 20' off the tree line running across the front and one side of my yard. I know they are there and fly as often as possibly dodging them. Unfortunatly ecvery once in a while I misjudge and clip a wing. I have even burried a UMSukhoi wing into the power line so the plane was hanging in the air and I had to trow sticks at it to get the plane down down.

    Oh lets not forget the 25' high flag pole in the front, corner of the yard. Recently my son hit the flag pole, The plane dove to the ground and he was able to recover about 6" off the deck. One of the all time best saves in the front yard :-)

    RE: Gee Bee Crash

    Hard to tell from the video- is it repairable?

    RE: Gee Bee Crash

    Only if you consider buying replacement parts as "repairable". Actually being able to glue the wing back together and fix the flying wires, no, its too damaged. I spent $55 on new parts, so hopefully its just a bolt together type of deal. Its kinda an expensive crash for a Micro UMX GeeBee. Live and learn. I keep watching the video cause it sounds wicked.
