    Tale a punch that will slip down and contact the screw head. Tap the punch with a hammer. You can give it a "good" rap but don't gorrilla it. That will loosen the screw enough that it will back...

    Ups and downs with both aluminum ad carbon fiber. Aluminum CAN bend but usually will not have a catastrophic failure. Carbon fiber will not bend, it breaks and that is usually a very bad thing...

    Would a YS 120 NC be enough motor to fly this airframe the way it was intended. The recommended engine is an OS 155 FS pumped, or a 120 2C.

    Thanks!
