I have broken so many Bamboo skewer sticks in minor (& Major Crashes) that I just went ahead & bought a Pack of them at Walmart. All they had was a Pack of 100! I sure hope I don't break that many!
I still love my Litestick! I got a Deal from Tower, Bought 2 Litesticks for $48 Including Shipping! I did steal the DX-A Motor out of one of the kits but it's nice to know I have a Backup plane in case mine does what the Aussie Man's did!
P.S. - I fly over a Yard that contains (2) Large Dogs, the Dogs have expressed their desire to me that they will eat my Litestick WHOLE if it goes into their Perimeter!
