Lost orientation doing stall turns at sunset, thought she was nose in when she was tail in.
Canopy is pretty bad, blades, boom, skids, flybar, main gear, tail servo rod, bent the muffler and stripped out the bolts, broke the needle valve off the carb.
Not sure if I am going to rebuild.

Hey Troy- not to worry.

Little spackle, JB Weld, paint and about $800.00 and she will be good as new- fuel tank looks fine.
