Funny that you shared this. Yesterday, my buddy is putting the finishing touches on a beautiful H9 120cc Pawnee and picks up his wing breaking the strut! Plane hasn't even left his living room yet!

The integrity of that pot metal is very inconsistent. Some seem to hold up, while others fail with the slightest load.

Wow!

Looking forward to hearing the difference between the FG40 and the FG33R3.
