I had once something similar with a different bird from HobbyKing ... I did contact their CS, send them pictures ... and they send me a new fuselage ... it just took 3 months from contact to get my new fuselage .. but it was all at no extra cost.

I think they can send you a new fuselage.

ps: In theory with some hot water, and hot glue, it can be fixed ... but ... yes it is not the best start
I am pretty sure this can be fixed, it will make a decent spare fuselage just in case.

Yes, and make sure all your wires are secure also...If anything gets sucked in the fan it will be a bad situation, fan can bust appart it spins extremely fast... just like a real jet it only takes a bird to fly in and cause a crash...EFDs are new to me I just ordered this t-45 yesterday,but i did a lot of research by watching many utube video's and joining several forums...If you don't know what you are doing it will cost you money and aggravation and possibly injury to you or someone else..this is an awesome hobby but these are not toys...Good luck

It's the same airplane, just a different color scheme. This clip is from 2008, so the plane is probably a SAPAC - different foam (EPS).

Ok ... I had a half charged 3S 1600mAh 15C battery around .. so I made a little test.

Amps = 38A
Volt ~ 10V

With a fully charged and the good 2800mAh 30C ... I'm sure it will sucks more then 40Amps

My flying buddy connected a device (from Bantam) between my battery and ESC and found that the amp draw is near to 40A during a full throttle test. When using a clamp tester (set to DC measurement), the reading is only 20A. I cannot explain the big difference in the two readings. Is there an AC component in the battery lead when the motor is running? Or is there any other factors. Someone ever tell me to multiply the clamp meter's reading by 1.5 or 2 in order to get the real amp draw. He did not tell me the reason behind this.

Yup perfect1, 40 amps sounds about right. Not sure why clamp-on amp meter is not working. Do you have it clamped around just one battery wire or both? Seems like if it is around both, they might cancel each other out.

Also, there would be an AC component, but it would be high frequency, maybe 8poles x 5000 rpms /60 sec/min. I get about 700 Hz. That is a total guess, just ignore me

wolf,
those pilots are good looking, but the added weight is a problem..... never mind the scale cockpit,get a bigger e.s.c. and a 4 cell 2800 40c battery. spend your time FLYING IT...not looking at it.....
