Default ELE BEE Round two!!

Well I have a Bee that has had a long hard life and last summer my two daughters were learning how to fly( crash) with it . So the Bees are tuff but the center section was shot,Turns mushy after about a million impacks,Shown in the last picture its like a sponge..... Carbon spare has to be removed then I cut 2 inches off both wing pannels out, cut new servo and radio bays with my soldering iron, and made a new slightly smaller Bee out of the old one, here the new one is shown with one more beaten Bee awaiting the same fait the cut marks are shown with black marker .Cheers Mike Burns.

P.S. Now that I think about it this second beater wing that is awaiting its rebiuld had the speed controller catch on fire one summer day last year on a fast low flyby it had smoke pouring out of that front hole at about 40mph it looked like it had been hit by a SAM missle, then no controller no power for its radio!! were going down !! Mike Burns Cheers.
