Well lets see.........What next!
With only 40 flights on it I have had this stuff happen. Just a note. I have thirty years experience flying all types of models and full size from fighter to civilian types. So I tend to be anal on inspections and looking after stuff. I'm also the club test pilot and senior instructor so I think I'm pretty decent at flying these things.

My List:
Fuse broke in half on landing?
Main wheel fell off
gear door hinge broke
L&R TV servo lockups
Yaw TV servo lockup
Front retract mount fell off
Lost both rudders when hinges failed in flight
Left wing spar coming loose inside wing
Right elevator stab bracket came off in flight
Developed stress cracks throughout entire fuse.
Exploding fan from FOD.. not aircraft fault.
TV gimbals failing. One very sloppy and both grind
So Just check everything out prior to flights. I do fly this in demo flights a lot so tend to be very high G most of the time. Still a pretty good aircraft.
