    The luck ran out F18 foamy jet... demise

    We i got this little baby free for finding it a month after it was lost in a big cornfield. The owner said go get it boys! they are picking corn this week.. IF YOU FIND IT,YOU OWN IT !

    Well I did find it, the mice had chewed it all up, motor seized, fan chewed,speedo burn't up. Broken pieces, bad servo.... I looked at it, and thought well I have some spare stuff, why not give it one more try... I put it all back together and flew it.. pretty weak, I thru in a upgraded motor fan and it wasn't to bad. I flew it a few times and then one day I made a broad turn at about 40 feet high, and one wing fell off ! It did some crazy maneuver all the way down and somehow hit without breaking anything... A few repairs later I still had it in the air, one rudder almost fell off the other day.

    Now last week a buddy and I were flying a LOOSE formation with two foam jets, and I don't know what happened, it was somewhere between all my fault and airframe failure it went in hard !

    I already have the gear (which survived) moved into a new foam jet..

    Enjoy the pic !
