I started my model aviation addiction when I was around 10 with Guillows free flight models. I moved on to RC gliders in my early teens. After college I got back into the hobby with electric parkflyers and micro electric helicopters.

This is the review that convinced me to get this Gee Bee: http://z8rc.blogspot.com/2012/02/great-planes-gee-bee-r-1-rxr-385-build.html I think it is a pretty accurate review based on my experience so far. Also has some good ideas for modifications.

Here is a picture of the broken motor mount. Looks like it should be pretty easy to fix. Hopefully I will be able to get this Gee Bee up in the air again soon.

Looks like all my bad landings with this Gee Bee have taken a toll. Broke the motor mount, ended up with things getting out of alignment in flight and the prop got stuck on the cowling. Made for a pretty ugly looking dead stick landing.
