Another weak point that you'll find is the tiny screws for the swag arms. They will bend from the slightest crash. However, if they're bent slightly and the swag arm isn't binding it doesn't seem to affect the flight.

That being said, I'm very happy with the Wasp X3V fbl and think that it's hard to beat for the price.
Thanks for the hints Pa flyer. Yes, the screws for the swag arms were bent as well (see attachment).
The local distributor kindly gave me a brand new replacement X3V so everything is ok now.
You are right, after some minor crashes with the replacement unit, one of the screws is bent.
