R/C P-38 and another crash

I fixed her up and took her for a spin.
It was relatively calm, just a little gusting.

Well, by the time I got started, the wind picked up.  I should have aborted, but I am stubborn.

As soon as I got it in the air, I lost control.

I thought I managed to get it back, and tried to enter a left-hand pattern.

Suddenly, a huge gust kicked up, and she went down. Hard.


Both tail booms took serious damage.

The battery popped out, I had to hunt for it.

Left aileron is almost disconnected

Left and right props are wonky.  I don't know if I can fix them. Or by a new set... Or
