With that kind of evidence they should have given it to you for free.

Thanks Vic and C/N...1600kv sounds good! Vengame makes you think twice w/ that 6s 1970kv bird... he's got it going on

Can anyone tell me what the average wing cord is? Or the root cord and tip cord? I want to calculate the wing area and wing cube loading. I've tryed to guestimate from my 70mm sniper wing, but I'd prefer the real numbers. It seems the wing loading may be very low for an edf... which would be awesome!

What I don't get is why would they put wooden blocks on the hinge locations instead of just putting one long piece along the whole length of the hinge line (a traditional way), that way it would stiffen the stab + it would give builders a bit of insurance that the hinge is secured to a wooden block and not just air (afterall we all know where this kits are made at).

What an absolute disaster! Sorry to hear that you unknowingly payed a grand to be the guinea pig for HET. I hope the manufacturer takes care of you. I would be ashamed if I was in any way associated with this product!

That's one of the questions that was originally brought up after the first one crashed oh-so-many months ago now.

From what I understand, the new stabs should be ready soon.
Hope to get my hands on a replacement Sniper... I'm missing the way these things fly!!!
If schedules work out we're planning to bring out at least one Sniper w/ the original Stab as well as another w/ the new Stab to Best in the West.
Should be fun to mix it up w/ both large and small turbines and EDF's.

Out of curiosity, did you get this "special" deal through EJF from HET, or were you communicating directly to HET about your issue?

That's a shame. I was going to purchase this Sniper when they get the stab under control. But now, I'm not purchasing anything from HET, ever. Hope their special deal was worth it to them. I'm sure I'm not the only one disgusted with your outcome.
