Re: Do I need to check anything else?

Always range check you radio after any crash.

Ok I just experienced my first "crash". Somewhat minor but a crash >none the less. I caught a wing tip on landing and did sort of a cart >wheel landing. Most serious damage appears to be a broken motor >mount. It does not seem to have damaged the bulk head. There was a >slight crack in the bottom of the fuselage that was easily epoxied but >the rest of the the plane appears fine. I am replacing the engine >mount and the prop. Is there anything else I should check or replace? > >Thanks for the help. > >Ray Crane > > > > > >

Wing, horizontal stab and vertical fin attachments. Elevator and rudder hinges.

EVERY servo, linkages, servo mounts, the Rx, the battery, and the switches.

Landing gear/attachment.

Since your plane did a 'cartwheel' and broke the mount, I'd take a look at the engine. Pull the carb and backplate and flush out any dirt, etc. Check the crank making sure that it isn't 'tweaked' or bent.

AND the wing mounting system....If your plane uses dowels in the front of the wing, CHECK THEM OUT VERY CAREFULLY!!
