Default RE: Formost 150 or 160 version 2

The wing spar and ribs are extremely weak (balsa !!! / thickness 2mm) and totally unsafe to fly as is. See pics.

PS : this one had already the mod of the long tube and the carbon fibre on top of the mid wing.

You only see the internal severe damage when you carefully open the wing by removing the top skin. From the outside, you don't notice it at all.
I cannot repeat enough this kit is totally unsafe and needs to be rebuilt ENTIRELY what concerns the structure, and this is regardless of the kind of motor you're using.

We did not see any major differences between all those different so-called "types" (150, 160, V1, V2,...)
