A few pics of the damage to the wing tips. The box was not damaged at all so it must have happened when the wing was put in the box. I have emailed HK but am not holding out for an adequate response. Good job I got the plane with my bonus points I had been saving up for the last 12 months....

Ops check the aileron servos before you glue the wing in. I did not and sure as $#!t the left one was fried and free wheeled but it was to late to remove and replace it. I only fly on one aileron and thankfully it still flies great

Good advice I. Glad I got some extra servos. Its been my esperience with hk stuff the airfeames are good but the electronix are hit or miss especially the servos.

So I need to know, the "Slick" or the "Edge"? Has anyone flown both and what do you think. I'm not looking for full on 3d but a fun quick sport/acrobatic plane. I been flying 50mm edf's and 800mm warbirds and I need something new and these look great.

Did HK ever send you the replacement parts?

No, & I have now claimed against them via Paypal.

" Hobbyking's warranty service is professional, fair and fast".

Really?

I got the slick yesterday ( arrived perfect with zero issues ) and got 3 flights on it this morning. It isnt 3d but it is a great little imac plane, tracks well, good snaps, fast and has good power to weight. I have and have had quite a few HH micros and this is my 1st durafly micro and its as good as anything HH puts out. I have another slick and the edge coming and will be able to compare them for you when they arrive.

It flew like pretty much any decent imac plane, wasnt squirrely to me at all but then again the point people consider "squirrely" or "a handfull" differs quite a bit from person to person. I have been flying over 30 years and fly everything from 3 channel trainers to turbine powered jets so my opinion might be vastly different than the next fella. Hope this helps.
