Default Magnum Trashed!! Is this the same plane?

Maidened my Magnum today and it went in at full speed over the runway. Very spectacular crash.[sm=omg_smile.gif] Apparently the CA hinges on the elevator pulled loose and gave it down elevator as a result. Was a low pass at full throttle. Only caught the left wing and it belly landed itself. It is destroyed. I was wondering if the nitro planes Jet is the same thing, and if anyone can verify this?

This is the plane I am talking about.

Or should I just order another magnum from Weston.

Good news is that the plane is a SWEET flyer and I have to have another one! [sm=shades_smile.gif]
The motor survived without any damage and so did all of the radio gear. That weston 50 V1 is a real power house!!
All in all not a total loss

Sure does look the same, of course I would lose the dorky gear. The price isn't bad either.
