You're right to be pisssed-off. But do not forget that 99% of radio faillures are due to user 'mistakes'/bad handling/lack of knowledge. It's is so easy to imagine the load of complaints HH gets and then the % of claims that simply aren't founded.
Still, I've had only great responses from HH when contacted and of all the companies I've had to complain to, HH is deffinately the most responsive one.
Good luck :-)

DX6i, on DSM2.

To add to my trouble's, I got a call from HH, saying the new charger had been sent to my LHS, and upon inspection, its for a UMX Beast! Not buying from HH again, unless they improve on customer support. One more thing they stuff up, I am bringing the Consumer Service's board into it.

Hello again,
finally I finished repairs of my Mosquito and I have two glitches to ask.
First is, if you can hear any proble in servo move? Because I think it sounds weird
Mosquito servo move (0 min 12 sec)


And then I have maybe bigger problem. Right motor seems to going less smoother, than left in low rpm. In high rpm it seems to go well, because plane is taxiing in straight line, but I ask for your opinion, if it can be flown.
Mosquito engine run (0 min 21 sec)

The servos sound fine, its likely they are making different sounds because of where they are positioned. The slower motor, try adding some lube to it, it will probably loosen it up.

My (and other's) right motor problem was a bad brick. See much earlier in the thread.
You can replace the motor for a temporary fix. Ultimately, you need a new brick. there were some bad bricks in the early release of the plane.
Lubing will do no good, but can't hurt.
Suggest you call HH support.

Ultra micro light kits

SF Design Solutions micro lighting kits are designed for the ParkZone and E-Flite ultra-micro (UMx) F-4U Corsair, T-28 Trojan, P-51 Mustang and Mosquito. Kits are also available for the UMx Beast.

The 1S (3.7-4.2 volt) micro light kit weighs 2.5 grams and and consists of red/green wing-tip navigation lights, blue tail light and white landing light. A red flashing LED tail light is available upon request. The 5-light micro kits (Mosquito and Beast) have an additional (white) landing light. The lights run full time and are powered by the stock 1S battery pack (or 2S for the Beast) . Flight tests have demonstrated 6 to 8 minute flight times at normal power. Installation involves opening the fuselage, routing the wiring harness and taping it to the airframe. The wiring harness plugs directly into the AR6400 X-port and sip power at approximately 10mA per 6 minute flight.

**The Nano-JST plug is only compatible with the AR6400 series combination board and is not compatible with the AR6300**

Prices are $15 shipped for the 4 light kits (F-4U, P-51, T-28) and $18 shipped for the 5 light kits (Beast and Mosquito). Visit www.sf-design-solutions.com for more information. You can also follow a thread on HorizonRcFlyers.com. LCS

Yes. Pix of all A/C are located on my website - www.sf-design-solutions.com

There is also a short video of the T-28 in-flight, and both the T-28 and F-4U on deck (day/night).

Mine has the same problem. the left motor sticks and I have to turn the prop by hand. Its back at my LHS having the motor replaced.
Common problem I have been told

Very Annoying since my ultra micro P51 did the same thing.

crap motors.

Chris - the battery connectors are the same as in PZ UM planes - the battery is only unique for this plane because of its capacity.

probably only 4 or 5 minutes, the stock battery is 250mAh and gives 7-8 minutes.
