The Kadet Senior flew strong for a couple of years, until a failed receiver battery dumped it pretty hard. It happened while Brandon (my youngest son) and I were at a fly-in in Roanoke Rapids NC. The fuel tank decided to give the battery a bath, and it didn't like it so much :-) . Considering it was assembled from scraps and was so much fun as a converted, overpowered tail dragger, I decided to re-rebuild it... again. A friend in Nashville NC (Bryan Long) had a old Kadet Senior fuselage where the front part was in good shape, and that was all I needed to get started. The photos below may not be in order, but you'll get the idea. She's back up and flying the skys again!
