When my model arrived, one blade of the propeller was MISSING.On contacting the supplier I was told it must have happened in the post. No WAY!! The other half was MISSING! When I finally obtained a replacement in the UK and fitted it the propeller was catching the bodywork top lid when turned by the servo.

I have tried AND tried AND TRIED to fly mine with NO SUCCESS. It just dives straight into the ground and the last time was severely damaged and I wonder whether it is worth repairing.
The model is very realistic BUT mine will not fly despite altering the C.G., elevator throw etc.
Not happy.

I'll have another go at it, perhaps the prop angle is wrong, I don't know?
The videos, I agree are great but ALL Chinese made! (like the eagle!!!)
The one I received I'm sure had been attempted to fly, the prop broken when it crashed and then sent to me! There was NO foam packing in my box, just the parts in the box.

I just hope you have better luck than me, GL-O! The eagles MUST FLY as the videos can't be rigged, and the actual construction is fantastic and an awful lot of skilled craftmanship. It's just unfortunate that mine was a dud!

G-LO YesI have read ALL correspondence. I am waiting for someone OUTSIDE China to fly it!
Hopefully, they will have more success than I1 and then we might be getting somewhere.

Aero, I hope your eagle has not flown away !(or been attacked by a bigger eagle!)

On a more positive note, I really want you guys to get your models flying!
Good luck
Ted
