Default Fly's like its on rails - well errr uhhhh it did!!

Today was the warmest day since last october here in
middle tennessee - nice nice day except for a little wind.
I flew my wonder a few times then it was time for the 10 size shrike.
I'll post a few photos also. I was about 10 minutes into
flight it was flying like it was on rails untill it got derailed.
I had come from my left to right was doing a fairly wide banked
turn to come back when i for a brief second lost orientation
it appeared to still be turning and banking it begain to descend at a high rate of speed by the time i noticed it. it was about 50 feet off deck. i pulled up hard and ohhhhh s#!t its inverted, well full
forward elevator and alot of right ailiron and it looked and sounded like it hit the ground as it was flying back up......but it was only bouncing
the right wing completely seperated upon first contact with ground.
i just couldnt see it from 500 feet away that when it came back up it only had one wing.

oh well it'll fly again
I'm getting ready to move so it may take a few weeks

here is the before picture. the afters will be right here.
