I haven't crashproofed mine but this plane is so cheap, I would just buy another one.
Crashed proofed 2 A10's and they are like tanks now. They can take hard belly landings with out a scratch. Love this stuff

Yes, it is but most of their products have to come from the opposite side of the world and they do have products that can't be found anywhere else in Europe. I guess they pay for that. For those of us in N. America, it's much cheaper to buy the same product from the US or from sellers in China directly.
A few US buyers have purchased their Venom. Before they drop shipped stuff, shipping for that plane to N. America was $209.00 US. The total end cost was outrageous yet there have been a couple of US buyers who thought it was worth it. I almost fell for it but after I slapped myself a few times, I came to my senses and waited till they had a better deal. And when they did, Ready2Fly didn't expend any effort to secure those interested buyers.

Wow Xviper... When I wrote the pricey comment it was the Venom I was most intrigued with, watched all the vids and think it is outstanding... Want one but slapped myself as well... Dang what a tease..!!

Got some room....

.... To fly this time today... Or should I write land... To me it takes a bit of airspace to come in for a proper touch down... Maybe I am just not used to EDFs.. Flys very stable though... Need a battery strap... No aerobatics until I install one.. I think a little throttle / elevator mixing is due..Name: Wart 038.jpg

Battery Strap!

Don't fly at all without a battery strap!

Take it from someone who lost his first A-10 that way...and his second...

Battery strap has been firmly in place on his third one!

Oooh yes,
This is something I have to add also. I've been flying(bobbing around) it with only trusting on the velco strip. With the kind of movements that bird makes in the sky I now realize I'm very lucky the battery didn't shook it self loose in flight causing desaster. Have to make a strap before next flight.
Thanks for the reminder Russ!

Took my A 10 out for a speed run using RC Speedo. After recording a best run of 63mph , I clipped a tree coming around to land. Besides nitroplanes and killerplanes, are there any other places that may sell just the wing?

Nothing a hair dryer, bit of spackle, olive and brown paints could not fix. Back in action but I may order a new wing simply just to have

Okay...let me know if you don't find one and I'll save it for you. I know it would be pretty expensive to ship but if you have no other choice, let me know. By the way, mine is camo green.
