Potentially fatal crash - pilot survived

| Comments (0)
Ok, I'm being a little over dramatic. However, tonight at the WHAM indoor flying club I frequent Monday nights, I flew the Citabria too close to the gym wall. I tagged the wall, fell the floor and it appears I have stripped the rudder servo.

The servo is an integral part of the main board, which costs 50% the price of a completely new plane. And I have spent my last few pennies (in advance even...) getting some equipment for the StarLite park flyer.

Looks like the end of the road may have come for the Citabria. Pics of the servo may or may not appear. *sigh*. Nearly 14 hours on the airframe over 12 months of flying and probably over one hundred flights. It has served me well.

Rest in pieces little buddy.
