    btw cva59 what did they say at motion? I told tom about it once and nothing happened
    They basically said it's on me, there is no warranty and too much time has passed since I purchased it back on Nov. 24th 2018.

        I hear ya, I had hoped they would at least just shoot me out a replacement fuse but no luck. I was told I need to fix it myself which I can do and that's not a issue. The part that has discouraged me is that this is clearly a defect the design resulting in an extremely weak point that could cause the total lose of the air frame. I was only able fly it a handful of times before I discovered the separation during my pre flight inspection. Landings were smooth with no issues so apparently it's only held together at this point with nothing more than the strength of an egg shell. Otherwise the plane is a blast to fly.

          Hi guys, I read that someone told me twice about this? I don't recall hearing anything about this. I went back and check my PMs, emails, and out ticket system about found nothing. Please PM me the details. I'd love to look into this. If you called, please send me the phone # you called from and approximately when you called so I can look it up in our call reporting software. Most importantly, please send me a description of your issue.

              I got two of these recently. I first got one for my 13 year old as his first EDF. He has been flying the snot out of it. Recently won the longest flight trophy at eJet fest down in Lakeland, FL with a 12:17 flight on the Admiral 4S 3600 Pro with it. Great transition EDF.... Then, I got another for my 9 year old. I maidened it for him Saturday and it flew great. Got him some stick time on it with a buddy box. Both boys have taken on the daily flight challenge and the youngest is at 251 days while the 13 year old is on day 233. The Rebel brothers! LOL

                Steve id recommend that you take some clear lexan and reinforce the seam at the front of the intake...similar to the bae hawk, I just put a 90 degree bend in it and gorillia glued it into place...a rough landing will break the entire nose off this plane as there is no glue on the side seam at all which makes it very weak...Tom told me that they will look into fixing this weak area and that it was made before motion started selling this plane...great flying sport jet though and u cant beat the price lol

                      to reinforce by the air intake I use 30 min epoxy inside the battery bay applied thinly with an old brush, its like creating an eggshell, an inch and a half or so either side should work fine. If you need to add nose weight I added mine using fishing lead granules set in epoxy in the nose cone BEFORE I glued it in place, you need to add the amount to suit the chosen battery but this way you will use less. I bought the artf version and have fitted an FMS 12blade 4s fan with 70amp predator esc, oleos all round, 60gms lead in the nose ( 2 oz) all up weight inc 2650mah nanotech =1450 gms cg 95mm from wing front joint, thrust 1600gms wing loading 70gms/dm2 or 24oz/sq ft. power to weight ratio 1.1 to 1

                        So, I have a couple of 4S 2.7-3Ah batteries with good C-rating needing something to power. :Confused:
                        After a browse around I have now ordered the Rebel, looking forward to see it perform as an semi-advanced trainer for a very good price. :Cool:
