Speed Controller is completely destroyed, the heat sink came off and the wires got severed. the only good thing is my Rx and Motor, as well as all 4 servos. I would recommended drilling 2 holes in the control horn and running some screws into a back plate. Crashing over something as stupid as that. Way to Fk up Parkzone, why would you put good horns on the rudders but not the elevons?

sorry for your loss
that has been a reported weakness
everyone should reinforce the elevon control horn attachment
also the pushrods are pulling out for some
the elevon hinge pulld out for some
maybe it's quality control, some work fine, some fail....dunno...
