Creating one Fazer DS junkie after another.
I've heard there damn near impossible to get new any more (been
replaced by bigger and better).
One thing about the Fazer though. I think it's a good idea to wrap a 2-3
inch wide strip of light glass around each half of horizontal stab so that it
reinforces the area right at the end of the stab joiner rod. My Fazer stabs
both broke there, on two hard landings (just pancaked down hard), and most of
my DSing has been after repairing them so they're stronger than new.
I just used glass strip cut on the bias, wrapped all the way around once
and trimmed at the trailing edge, stuck down with a misting of Super 77
and finished with CA.
My new Crossfire died DSing recently ;(, and I'm pretty sure the initial failure
was at the same place on the full flying stab (which then caused it to
immediately pitch forward hard, and the wing folded downwards).

BTW, higher quality version of the Fazer Freestyle at Jones video
here http://www.thud.us/videos/rc/jones-fazer-freestyle.wmv
(YouTube version leaves something to be desired. I should
re-upload it and see if the new "high quality" mode can keep up
with the motion)
