Default Planes that won't die

When A ultra micro or umx survives a flighing season, it dosen't exactly have a "showroom finish." I think it would be kind of neat to have a thread of "How does that peice of junk even fly?" ultra micros. post pictures of your UMJ (ultra micro junk) here. And please, do not laugh at other peoples junk, you know that you are guilty of it as well.

Now to my UMJ: an Eflite UMX sbach 342 that has survived a radio malfunction and numerous botched landings.

"Other People's Junk"= OPJ. That's pretty funny, Waffleman. Now, does she still fly? I can't wait to post some real Van-dammage pictures here. I've got a new Beast that is just begging to be driven into the ground at high speed.

Default RE: Planes that won't die

I flew it this weekend... into the fence. [:@] I took off for my second flight, and my rudder linkage slipped on the control horn, creating tons of fake rudder input. I was having a hard time turning it around to land into the wind, and watched the plane too much and my surroundings to little. When it hit the fence, it snapped the propshaft, removed the gorrila-glued wing, and snapped one of my side force genarators. I used 5-min epoxy to put it back together and used the second set of side force genarators instead of trying to repair the first. On a positie note, It flew nice and rock solid in the slight breeze I was encountering.

I flew it again, and this time my battery hatch fell off twice, because it is hitting the prop. Im going to retire this plane, because every time It flys something breaks.

I find it's the ugliest ones that won't die cause even the ground is afraid of it!
