Don’t use wire ties or take short cuts when building. First Flight , pushrod looked like it was for a 1/2 A model. I used a coupler to attach two pieces of rod together and instead of using a pushrod support I used a twist tie to keep the rod a little more stable even though I was told that it wasn’t a good idea , but I’m hard headed and didn’t listen. Today was a good day for flying hot but ok. I told myself to stiffen the pushrod rod up and take ┬áthe wire tie off before I took it out but again didn’t listen. Well the twist tie got stuck holding the coupler in the up position, did about 4 loops and then it stalled had no line tension and down it went.
Hard headed. My Drill sergeant told me that 45 years ago some people never learn lol. Gut instinct  42070f10

Ouch!

Crumpled wing to a beautiful airplane. Fixable.

Sympathies extended, but thanks for posting. I no longer feel alone in the "never listen to advice of others" crowd.

Crumpled definitely fixable above my pay grade. It splintered the inside first 3 ribs and leading edge. Might have a broken motor Mount will take a closer look tomorrow, it was 85 % today like to kill me im beat. Called Vintage performance and asked for another print he was nice enough to say he would send me one. Nice to have company thanks

Sorry about your crash Onelife!…. I’ve busted a few too!!….That’s the thing about our model airplanes, We fling ‘em into the air and there’s always risk!!…. But it’s what keeps it exciting as well…..Agree too it’s fixable with a little surgery …. Thumbs Up

Sorry dude... that's gotta' sting a bit more than taking a chance on a maneuver.. and having a fail. Sharing your humility with us here only makes us appreciate you more as a fellow modeler.
