#1 Had the wing upside down when I drilled the holes for the wing dowels. Easy to get confused on that, as the manual sort of switches gears at a critical point. Anyway, wing came off during a split ess at about 200 feet. Fuse bored straight in a full throttle, dug about a 2 foot hole in the ground. Wing came fluttering down about a minute later. Laughed myself silly.
#2 Had trouble stepping on the antenna wire, pulled it loose from the circuit board. Passed a full throttle range check, so thought everything was OK. Spectacular crash.
#3 Finally got my act together. Wing dowel blocks in the right place, wing rightside up, 2.4 Futaba system with no vulnerable antenna. Flies wonderfully [:'(] Two years old. OS 15 CVA, HS 81MG servos. 33 oz.

The Wonder is such a smooth, fast flyer. Wondering why we don't see more of them. Inexpensive way to have a lot of fun.

Mine went splat after a dozen or more flight. It started with a MDS .18 then a .15LA was a bit slow so on went the 25FX and last engine was a OS 25 Ducted Fan engine. All in all a very nice little plane that was cheap and easy to build and flew great.

I have the same setup, and your right a very fast fun plane to fly. Several times trying to land i killed the engine then overshot the runway-floates baby!
I just recently noticed a fin broke loose under the monokote so i'll have to add corner braces, should have done this to start with. The OS15CVA flat smokes.
