Default Brief report on the yellow bee

It's a cute little yellow plane(look it up on hobby lobby) that uses twin reverse mounted motors for throttle and steering. Unfortunately it cannot handle wind whatsoever. Somehow I lost control on it's maiden flight and it spiraled in from about 100 feet, cracking the fuse in several places, ejecting the latching battery canopy somewhere and snapping/creasing the wing where it meets the left motor mount.

I think I've come to the conclusion that I'm not going to sink any more money into these things... Somehow I've managed to blow over 400 dollars in about 3 months. I think that's enough.. sort of like gambling...
