F90 Tailfeathers coming off

Since I got my Funtana 90 I have heard rumors of the tail feathers coming off due to flutter and/or structural failure. Has anyone had this happen or heard of this.

Use the supplied braces and add some spider wire fishing line to it. I heard that works really well. I have one (F90) and I do not plan on flying it bad to need that. I did do my fourstar 60 that way.. LOL

Could this be fixed with just CF rods on top and bottom?

Or what about taking the covering off (I plan on recovering mine) and glassing the joints?

the problem is flying to fast. Just don't do many high speed fly by's or full throttle dives and you should be fine.

here are a few pics of my funtana 40 we used the sulivan wire kit (spelling) i had the carbon on top and botem but still pulled the rods out
and i fly it hard,wide open blenders walls and snaps, i have the saito 100 on it , lots of hard g's

i have had about 40 flight with the wire kit and have had no problems

in this pic u can see that the right side elevator in hanging, the reason for this was a wide open blender and the ca hinges riped out i was able to land but i got lucky
i garinty the tail would have broke if if i just had the carbon fiber on it
and this is on a funtana 40
