Hi gramps, The pictures are after the repairs.
When the box landed on the plane the landing gear compressed and sprung back pushing the plane mostly out of the way.
Repairs only took a few minutes, now if that was a plane I liked ,I'll bet it would have been a completely different story.

Great news Paul congrats on the new field.
Putting the old glow head on the nose is a great idea. Makes it look like a real old timer!!

Hi guys. Yeah, our new spot is great. Looking forward to heading up this weekend.

On an airplane related note, any suggestions as to what to put a E-Flite Power 25 1250kv motor into? Looking for a sport / aerobatic suggestion.

Thanks.

Doug

I have that X Ray you can have. It needs recovering but it will be great with that motor.

I saw this and thought of this thread. It's not just planes (or cars or whatever). Here, we have people moving into a neighborhood known for its live music venues, then complaining about all the music.

LOL! Kinda like my first job with the airlines. One of our planes was out doing a high power run in the middle of the night, and someone somehow had our hangar phone number and called to complain. The supervisor asked 'how long have you lived here?' Then said something like 'well the airport was here 60 years before that!' and hung up!
