The last flight of my Loc Viper III resulted in major damage to the rear extended motor mount tube area
I put the wrong chute in (and it landed with a thump ...ouch!)

I cut the mmt area in half and put 4" of bt 50 coupler tube...inside and shoved both sections back together (yellow glue)


heres a pic that shows the repair
