Thanks for the suggestion. I wonder why the kits stopped shipping with the dowels?

Do you know if the Angelfire and/or rehab are using the HK HXT900 servo or what's the equivalent?

My buddy Mark and I were out flying our DW Foamies at the local park this morning.

Per a recommendation from Mike (Mr. DW Foamie), I reattached my motor mount using white Gorilla glue after scuffing up the PVC motor mount. I also added some small dowels (like the old design) and I've had many successful flights since.

Mark is flying what we believe to be the world's only DW Foamie Yakedge. This is the result of crashing an Edge, then ordering a replacement Yak nose job kit by mistake. It flies straight and true though.
