    Happily, it doesn't produce any electronic noise in the RV-6.

    Cheap...

    The reality is that the cost of the parts required to put that airplane back in the air greatly exceeds the market price of a flying example in decent shape. Do not walk away. RUN.

    I've seen fiberglass (or maybe plastic) tent poles shatter. They can't be repaired at that point. Aluminum poles usually kink instead of break. In an emergency, you can splice one with duct tape...

    The knee jerk is to impose new regulations even though if the flight had followed the existing regulations, the helicopter wouldn't have crashed.

    He already knew he was low, which was why he pulled up into the clouds and subsequently (apparently) lost spatial orientation and crashed. A ground prox sensor wouldn't have helped.
