Talking Stik 60 - Crash after Rebuild

Here are my crash pictures after I patiently restored and old Big Stik 60.
I put a cowl on, wheel pants, flaps etc. I initially had problems with the engine mounts and broke two! on rough landings. Now it;s all broken after a Spektrum 'brownout'.
What a nice plane it was

Very sorry for your loss. I have an Ultra Stick 60 that I love to fly.

As far a brown outs go they are a function of your battery power system, not the receiver. While some people have run tests that appear to indicate that another brand of receiver fails at a slightly lower voltage, there is a fatal problem if the voltage ever gets near that range.

Just noticed that you configured for tricycle. How do you like that?

I think the tricycle gear worked really well! I would build it again!!

A little epoxy and the fuselage can be fixed, Looks like a wing kit might be in order. Shame for a good ole plane to be turned into a kit.
