Default The Beast is dead, so bummed

Hey now,
After four years of near weekly hard flying my sixty sized Beast has died a battery failed just after take off and she went in. Not so hard but right on a lower wing tip ripping a strut out of it's mount and the lower wing out of the fuse. While I'm usually pretty good with repairs I don't think I can do this one keeping it both light and strong enough to handle the loads I put on the airframe. This has been my favorite plane for four years and I'm really bummed to lose it. Of course Horizon in their infinate marketing wisdom have discontinued the model for a newer (better selling?) Design
It also looks like hopes aren't popular with the stunting crowd for now.
Even when you know it's going to happen sometime it's still hard to lose a favorite. Thanx for letting me vent...
