Outside the screw with the blue anodized washer looks cool, at least for me.
I reinforced just in case the motor box, and also I installed the washers on the holding motor fairing screws too...
Nice photos Manolo. You're obviously having fun dragging out the assembly time of your Bandit with all the very nice attention to fine detail and applying many personal touches. I'm taking notes while waiting for my Bandit to arrive (sometime this week with any luck).

Cheers, Byron

I allways scan my manuals, here are some links:

Just wondering, for the optional arms, are they the same as the Addiction X ones?

BTW, thank you very much for posting those manuals! gives me an idea on how long it'll take to build!

They are not the same, if you do have the ADX servo arms you can use them, but if not, just get the Bandit ones

So, ban me or sue me....
I think PA is missing a PR opportunity by not publishing manuals.

Not only cool looks, it's a very functional cooling design as well. Mounting the ESC as far fwd as possible under the motor cage will put it right in the air intake and in the cool breeze. If you also expose the heat sink by cutting up the shrink wrap it will be even cooler.

WOW, that's really cool (pun intended)! I'll make sure to mount my ESC on the bottom when I get my Bandit!

One month after I recieved my gorgeous new green Bandit. Still can't fly her . Three weeks of trying to contact the US site to send back the Voltec servos that don't center, and one that completely failed after 5 minutes of bench testing an trimming. I have never talked bad about an online company but this is pretty bad. I was going to wait to post this, but I think a month of trying is enough.

"OMG... sorry I rarely ever complain about an online company but seriously. It should not take a month to return defective parts. And why don't you guys answer e-mails? The only reason I was able to send in my servos is because I finally got a call back three weeks after I started sending e-mails and leaving voice mails. The rep on the phone was very courteous, but he gave me a bs excuse saying that they tried e-mailing me but the messages got rejected. I would have rather heard the truth that they were behind, but he lied to me. It is my business e-mail and I know it works.... Frustrating. I have never dropped 500 bucks on something, and then been treated so badly. I can't wait to fly my Bandit, but I will never buy anything from this company again. I have no problem waiting a couple weeks to get parts in the mail, but come on... even hobby king answers e-mails. Not dumping on you, just giving you some feedback." I just want to fly my plane.

Hi guys,
has anyone tried Bandit with and without SFGs and Vortexs? What effect does it exactly have?

Thanks
Jan

I'm with you...got mine for Christmas and it's still not flyable. Waiting on the backordered CF spinner. Ended up cancelling some stuff off my backorder with them...ie servos and lipos. Got my servos in this week from Todd's Models so I've got the plane completely ready except for the spinner and balancing. I could buy a different spinner but I already paid for this one as part of the bling package.
