Default RE: Dragon wing failure.

I was standing next to my friend who was flying his Large SM viper. He had a total of 4 flights on it. On a normal pass the wing pulled out and the plane crashed and burned. New JC 160, new JR servos, everything new. Nothing left but the wing that pulled away from the fuse.

We picked up the wing and guess what? The little metal tab that plugs into the fuse was missing. The tab had seperated from the wing as in your pictures. $!2,000 dollars down the tube. I took a picture of the wing and sent it to jeff who forwarded it to Anton. They are sending him a new kit, but refused to pay for his new 4000 dollar engine loss and other items when it was clearly their fault.

Another friend has the kit also and will be reinforcing the tab somehow.
