Default camera on wingo crash

Here is a crash of my buds Wingo.The camera is on board and pointing out under the left wing. At the end he does a loop and the Wingo goes into the dreaded tuck. There where no survivors

WOW. That hurt! If I may guess what the other plane was. A T-Hawk or another wingo or something I did not list? Nice video

Yep the orange plane is my old T-hawk, loved that plane, great to learn on and fun to fly DURABLE !Did allot of mods to improve the performance, flies nice w 3cell lipo kokam and 7.2v brushed, just all alittle cooling. It's hard to make the wing strong enough to handle the load but it really is a great starter. Sold it to one of my friends to infect them with this addiction as well ) (it's my duty, obligation)

Wingo's where bieng sold by Hobby lobby but they discontinued them last year, big wing and stable but they have one bad habbit of going into a tuck if ya loop um (see video....he he)

Cool looking warbird t-hawk, here is my t-hawk,
chg prop, add cooling, 7.2v grauper400,3 cell kokam 1500. Crashed a few by snapping wings but she did not owe me anything. Fun plane and a great place to start, It was hard for me to let her go.

Thanks. So is the wingo fixed? Or is it a write off?

that was the last flight of the wingo, he rebuilt the plane w a new foam blank. It's a good camera platform as it has allot of space upfront and can handle a bit of weight. HL does not sell um anymore, I think Coleseman, a greman company was the MFG, they made my projetti wich is my favorite. Sadly they went out of busness (

I think the SoarStar (a Wingo clone) is still available. I see it over at ehobbies.com. The SoarStar is basically the same as the Wingo, and I've heard it comes with a better engine/gear setup.
