When I landed in the bog the stress from stopping so abruptly, tweaked the rig. It’s possible that the tubing was compromised before I took off and thats why my prop got into the netting. I’m going to show it to Vince the welder but I’m 99% certain that it’s time to replace the frame. There is a noticeable bend in the horizontal and three welds are needed to just repair the obvious tubing damage.
I was able to take the motor off in 2 hours and even if it takes 4 to put it back together I could possibly be back in the air by Friday.
