Finished my repair on my Long Ranger after the SK360 flybarless system tip over. The fuselage was split from where the mast comes out of the top all the way back to the tail, Horizontal Stab ripped off and multiple punctures in the fiberglass sides.. Krylon paint and vinyl graphics rounded out the repair..

Good job on the repairs. Sorry to hear the SK360 failed, do you know the cause of the failure? Would hat to have that happen on a high $$ machine.

Taylor... Please read this thread

https://rc.runryder.com/t547763p1/

and my post on page 1... This was a known problem and I read the solution (see my post) a week after my flip over... I spooled up and just as she reached rpm, it flipped over on its side... Never had a chance.. happen in a second of time..

BTW... All scale machines are high $$$ IMHO
