Well, I said I would post the results so here goes. Eric followed through with his promise to send me a new fuse. This was sent to me without my providing evidence of damage, in other words no questions asked. Bravo to Eric for that "old fashioned" type of customer service.
The plane itself is another story.[:@] The fuse sent to me as replacement was also warped and has the same gap problems. I would be hesitant to buy one of these until the company has worked out the bugs. I usually wait on ordering new models do to see if anyone has problems, but, since the 70mm version of this plane was so great I went ahead and ordered as soon as the 90mm became available. That is my mistake. Next time a new model comes out that I want I will not be a guinea pig, I will wait until the bugs are worked out.
Again, Eric followed through on his part and I don't expect him to be able to fix the company's molding issues. That lies on their shoulders, not Eric's.
Thanks again Eric for the great customer service and I intend on ordering from Nitroplanes in the future.[8D]
