This really suck because I really liked that plane. Anyone think BH will replace? So if there are no parts is this a 260 dollar piece of foam on wheels?
the engine will wobble .think about a prop that isnt balance will cause vibration to the motor imagine what a single prop will do . and yes constant rev of a motor with one prop will cause the motor mount to loosen.
hitting a tree sounds more like a crash than a landing.
could it have been one prop snapped causing another one to break
do you have pics of the blade im curious to see how those blades spontanously decided to just break . must have been some factory defect .
as for the elevator is the damage bad , usually foam parts can be rebuilt or remade from other foam .
