I can barely understand your sentences. Will Amain Hobbies replace it?

The box dont look bad i think whoever packed it crashed the aileron and stripped the servos. Not sure if a main will do anything i just wanted them to know that i feel they should open and check planes before they ship.
When i worked at hobbytown we opened every single plane and looked at them if they looked good we tape up box nd put our initals on box. With date. I found quite a few micros with broken wings n tails from the aa batts for chargers coming loose and breaking them.

HH should just send me a couple servos n a new wing not sure they will. I have glued the canopy and landing gear block and glue the broke part of the wing. Servos being stripped are the main problem. There so tiny you barley bump a surface and im sure they get stripped i feel they should be MG but then that cost more its suprize the plane us 169 same as the other micros.
Ive done re search and think the ds35 servos might be better and if i had money i would maybe buy a couple other brands have these tiny ones for lot less around 6.00 and 9 for mg. Still waiting to hear from HH

Mine was first with stripped on delevery some had strip servos after couple flights one went 100 before one just died.
