Default MAGNUM out with the OLD in with the NEW

Well my UK Magnum has has a slugglish or fading elevator the last two and a half flights. Power dives were offf limits requiring me to throttle back or lawn dart it. Well next was a long sweeping turn to low full throttle pass down the runway. High rates were engage, once used for landing only, and the Magnum kept sinking. Contact was made midfield in the grass just inches from the pavement. The wing departed and the fuse wnet another 60 yards shedding bit of the tail feathers before comming to rest. And the crowd went crazy....

Just by chance I made a trade of aircraft and got the "new" Magnum last Friday.

Is that the new Magnum color scheme in the second picture? I like it better.

NO, it is recovered, the original black "graphite look" covering peeled off on first owner.

CRAZY:

Hope you learned something about servos here, a hard lesson. This one gave you lots of warning it appears. Most of mine that go south, just quit with no warning. When all else fails, do a knife edge landing. At least the pieces are not a long walk. ENJOY
