This is my second Storch. It has been through the ringer the last three years. Great plane. Pilot? Not so much. Lol Last year I cut off what was left of the nose which had been altered severely in several crashes. I down loaded the plans and rebuilt the front end, double walling it to make it more crash damage resistant. One the last flight the motor stopped mid flight. I believe this was from an over heating ESC. I removed that little flap in the nose vent and expanded the hole by about a quarter of an inch. Then I took some scrap foam board and created an air scoop to force air across the ESC in flight. Can't wait to get the plane back up in the air!
