Ok, i didn't see it, but the tag said today was the day. The battery came loose in a high banked turn and it went in at full throttle. Totaled the fuse and wing, broke a prop, and stripped 1 servo. Luckily the engine (my brand new Mag .15xls) came loose with the impact, and is just fine. It did fly nice for 3 flights though. I was in the process of moving the cg back, and adjusted the position of the battery. Note to self: no less than 2 zip ties on the battery, and never reuse.. 16% seemed to be getting real close. Oh well. It was fun to fly, but I found myself wishing it had more speed. The next one may need a .32.
