Really calm pilot. Didn't come out with any 4 letter words. Its a shame when that happens. But the way I see it, it has happened to all of us only not that big. Back to the drawing board.

I read somewhere that that entire airframe was built from styrofoam, covered in fabric and painted with house paint. The objective was to build the entire airframe for less than $200US. When the thing is re-kitted the foam just disintegrates! I found another site that had static pictures as well as the video. If I can dig it up I'll post it.

When it did the touch and go, it looked like something was damaged.

Did it hit the prop maybe?
