My new glider

I bought this airplane used from a friend in my local RC flying club a few months ago. The model is a Windstar from Thunder Tiger. It is a three channel electric glider with elevator and rudder. The wingspan is about 2 meters. The airplane was old and used a lot. I started by removing all the covering film and replaced some broken wood parts. I rebuilt the nose of the fuselage to fit my needs with a large magnetic battery hatch. I also modified the wing tips and removed the original plastic ones and replaced them with balsa wood. After all repairs and modifications was complete I covered the airplane again using a Oracover, yellow and red on the top side and black on the bottom.
