Nothing so serious but just a "tree" excursion (and a tall on at that) the result, I think, by a damaged tooth on a servo causing an elevon to stick.

Of course only having two servos to control everything (it has no rudder) if one goes you are in trouble!
Being such a slim delta it went straight through the outer foliage and ended up wedged between a branch and the trunk 25' up.
After extraction the 25' drop to the ground didn't do it much good either!
  
Rather a lot of 'patch' repairs but its slowly getting there.


Ouch, not suppose to park in the trees....

Glider suffered a drilling operation, had the battery to far back and when I launched it went into high alpha and then flipped over and straight into the ground.
