    RE: Fliton Element 170

    Well in reading some of the prevy about the element Ihave to say this......


    More glue! Great!....
    More heavy duty construction?? GREAT bonus when using a gas engine!....
    more wood everywhere?? GREATGREATGREAT.....THat will help absorb vibrations....

    In looking at this forum. I would hope that the issues that some have had get straitened out....
    Flintion, needs to address that....New plane sent out to the guy with a heavy one??/ Yes.... If they want to take care of bussiness.....

    If you read what Filton says about this plane "you won't be dissapointed" then They need to make things right..........................
    Will watch with great interest....But even though one rep has tried to help, and No one from Fliton (that can send out planes or do anything about it)
    has not done so??? This is a Unproven pattern plane that needs lots of support to make it successfull From Fliton!.....
    It is not how I would want a product to be released!!....What if you needed a part for your plane???
    Pattern flyers are a tight niche group of flyers..... They are not as large as the IMAC and word of mouth is a great big opportunity....
    Fliton unfortionately has lost out so far.....I hope for the pattern communitiy, they get there CS, and planes straitened out....I
    do not like to see a bussiness fail....It is downright depressing to sit back and see....

    I am happy that RCuniverse is available so that matters like this can be passed on to other Hobbiest so that they can make a
    INFORMEDdescision!.................
    Personally...I am waiting on the Extreme flight 2-meter Vanquish to come out, as I know how good there product support is!!!....and know that they will have a
    plane that flys well and will perfrom the way it is advertised, and if not, they will fix it for you in short order...

    I can bet that those that have had issues would have been very happy to shell out twice the amount of money, if it ment , great support, great flying plane (as advertosed)
    and recieved there planes in a timely manor....

    RE: Fliton Element 170

    I am truly shocked that no one from Fliton has answered the issue of overweight planes in this forum.


    Is there no justice in this world?


    What they need is to combine the artistic, and engineering designers from Fliton with the marketing guys from one of the many well respected US companies. Now that would be a "Marriage made in Heaven".

    RE: Fliton Element 170



    Can anyone help me?  On a 5th flight, my Inspire 90 crashed due to wing snapping. Fliton admits that it is a product defect but they are doing nothing. My receiver is completely dead and 1 servo is missing as the wing flew away. I lost the engine as one spectator stole it the.  
    Total damage is over $1000. I asked Fliton to replace the airplane but they are ignoring me. They dont respond on email and telephone.

    RE: Fliton Element 170

    Hi All.

    I have tried to e-mail Fliton, USA and Fliton, Korea but have so far received no answer back.

    I would like to buy 2 times the Element 170 Composite but need some answer regarding wing, tail and rudder covering/painting.

    Also I off course need a price and the freight costs.

    Are they out of business, not interested in selling or simply still not ready to ship out the composite version ?

    I and my son would like to use the Element in 2010 F3A competition mounted with a YS170CDI.

    Can anybody help ?
    Best Regards

    RE: Fliton Element 170

    Hi Ursus

    In a Hungarian shop there are modells that you are look for: http://www.rcmodell.com/shop/product...oducts_id/4955
    The homepage is in Hungarian, I recommend you to write an email: pandagsm@freemail.hu
    F3A activity is very low in Hungary, it is difficult to sell here.
    The price is about EUR 760 including VAT, but I suggest you to bargain.

    RE: Fliton Element 170

    Hi Peaceful,

    Thanks for your answer.

    As I can see on the pictures, it is only the wood-version and notthe Composite.

    Look here: http://www.flitoncompetition.com

    and choose "F3A Pattern",

    then "Expert Size" and finally "Element 170 Composite"

    The Composite version are a professionel F3A construction and this is what we are looking for.

    We could off course also choose the new Comp-Arf Valiant.....but hope to hear at least something from Fliton.

    Hi

    You are right. It is not a composite version, I missed it.
    Probably that is why the price is so nice.
