Had the same thing with a PA plane I got a couple of years ago.

Nearly two years later it's still near enough straight so it worked ok.. But it did irritate that I had to do it at all especially when you read all the spiel on the PA webside about how everything is precision jig built and all parts matched and trial assembled

Send it back the plane isn't fit for purpose...

You shouldn't have to work on issues that bad - the odd twist to an aileron ok...but the fuse...no way...that doesn't meet the criteria for fit for purpose....get a refund or replacement..

Hey Blake

Is the stab glued in yet or is that photo taken with it just sitting in the slot?

Just sitting there. I tried to sand it level but it is too far out of whack.

It's the fuselage that's twisted, you cant fix it by sanding the stab slot because if you do the vertical stab wont be perpendicular to the horizontal stab. The only solutions are to return it as faulty or try to untwist it.

Don't I feel like the bhole. I have already heard from Team PA twice. I should have given them a chance to make it right first before I got all grumpy.

Good to hear PA got back to you. I guess to be fair to them it's always possible that the fus was built right but warped in transit? Anyway the main thing is how they deal with the problem.

Hope it all works out ok.

We never got an email from you about the problem. Did you email us?

In order to help you out I would need to get a few specific photos to determine the problem as this specific photo can be deceiving (with the unglued stabilizer in place). We need to determine if it is a light twist of the fuselage due to covering shrinkage (we do set the incidence in the factory twice, once during the assembling then after the covering process while correcting any warp caused by the shrinkage of the covering, however, in some cases some warp can be developed during the shipping period in a container) , the stabilizer that doesn’t sit properly or the fuselage sleeve.

Please email us to support@precisionaerobatics.com and we will take care of you.

I've set up a poll about battery choice in your Bandit

Hey Flyers

I've set up a Poll trying to gauge how many flying 3s, 4s, or both, in their Bandit. I'm trying to decide whether to grab a few 4s batteries and try it for a while. Thought a poll might help me decide.

Cheers
Brett
