Its ALWAYS worth it spending a little more on something that doesn't have aluminum crap on it. See aluminum body "panels" - stay away.
Yeah, quality control in manufacturing is not one of 5888's strong suits. But give it a chance and it may just grow on ya. In fact, that's part of its appeal, it's a delight to see this seemingly over-weight POS actually fly, and fly quite well when sufficiently tweaked.
