RE: Hangar 9 60 Size Corsair...Where's The Glue?

Call horizon's customer service, They are pretty good. They may ask you to ship the plane back to them, but they will pay for the shipping. They replaced a Hellcat for me a little while back.

RE: Mojo 40 Build Thread

the only suggestion on how to fix that aileron is to NOT tell your friends about it. Nobody will notice it! That's the only thing about building kits, you become your own worst critic.

RE: Sig Hog Bipe engine

I really have no reason to lie...surprisingly the Hog Bipe can hold a hover very well, give it a whirl some time. i use a 14x6 prop. It doesn't go vertical like a rocket, but it is unlimited.
