***IMPORTANT*** Proactive Gaui 520 Blade Recall


This came in today. Please contact your dealer

Quote:
Good Afternoon All:

Gaui is instituting a recall of the 520 mm FES main blades (part number 208305). If you have purchased these blades, do not fly them. Return them to your dealer for a refund or replacement. During a team flight, a blade was damaged and one of the blades shed it's weight. We are working with the manufacturer to fully investigate the cause and implement the solution.

Until a full report is available, remove these blades from your helicopter and contact your selling dealer. If you have any difficulty in this process please contact me here and we will make sure we get it taken care of.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Gaui is committed to safety and wanted to err on the side of caution.

as the 203504 520 's use a similar manufacturing process, they are being voluntary recalled aswell.
Please contact your dealer.

The stock 500's are not affected and fine for use

Gaui is committed to safety and apologises for the inconvenience
