There is no problem with the wings! I am aware of the tight fit, therefore, have written down the steps regarding the wing attachment on the manual. It was not overlooked.

It is a tad long wing tube or tight fit of the wing tube into the sleeves (in this order)

OK, it's the same thing that happened with Addiction! I had to work on the wing tube a little bit to get the wings sit flush.

I agree, it should not be a problem once you recognize what's going on.

My red one arrived few hours ago. Very pretty red, black and white....even some extra decal bullet holes!
Everything looks fine after removing the tape and looking it over. Now to read the manual, watch the PA DVD included in the package and start the build.
The symmetrical airfoil of the horizontal stabs looks cool.
She will be stock 3S, P40, Voltec, Quantum 45....only thing I'll need to get is a set of the vortex generators later and a VOX 14x7 prop

I think it is time I bit the bullet (Pun intended LOL) and bought a little puller for the prop adaptor to make prop changes easy. I have been getting by with just kind of levering the adaptor off, but it’s not the best way to do it.
Are you guys going to do a build video of the bandit similar to the extra 260 vid? That rocked and it gave me valuable build insight.....very smooth all in one beer

These are so flipping sweet! If only I were a good enough plane pilot. Oh hail, I'm probably gonna get one anyway.

picked mine up this morning. Yep the blue is different than the addiction X. Seems more grey blue than the X but really nice looking in the sun.

My only issue is the white covering does not match the white paint used for the hatch, but thats trivial. Build quality looks good, and all the Carbon Fiberfusion in the fuse looks nice.
Very fast shipping BTW and it appears everything I ordered made it in the box.

BTW: It appears they used about a whole roll of packing tape securing everything in the box to keep it from damage... Well done there for sure, not a scratch.

Diggin it. Got mine yesterday. Looks great. My only concern is the CF spinner I got with my ipa package is pretty sloppy looking under the coating. There are long strands bunched up together on one side,and what looks like some sort of burn,or white bubbled melted plastic in the coating right near the tip. May have to see about getting that swapped out for one that looks better.(It is pretty bad,but I'm thinking it was just a fluke thing.The quality of everything else more than makes up for it.) Otherwise,shes a doll. Looks great. Man I love the profile of this plane. Heres a couple shots. Maybe I'll get a closeup of the spinner later.
