VERY thin plastic as well, you have to be really careful with it and I think some may have had the ball links pushed on too forcefully which bends them up resulting in negative pitch. 2nd one was spot on and flew great so I went with that one.
Yep, that why it pays to do your homework. Makes life so much more pleasant.
