It's "seasoned" now. A little CA here, epoxy there and your back in business. Your pilot probably got disorientated and over controlled. Smile

Nice looking airplane that reflects a lot of work.

I want to thank you all for your input and sympathy. on my loss of the Kinner. I think I will attempt a repair and and try and get her in the air again. After looking at the film and inspecting the plane I think I have come up with a reason for the crash.  The film seems to indicate a loss of control before the right wing came off. The wing was weak from my poor work adding more dihedral. It still would have came off at some point but I believe it snapped due to the sharp turn and dive caused from a failure in the connection point between the two halves of the elevator. (see picture). I think I gave up elevator and half the elevator responded causing the spin. Anyway it sounds good on paper,,LOL...Kinner Sportster - Page 2 Kinner21
