Default Warning To All Vmar Dornier Do27 Fliers

Over the weekend flew My DO27 and subsequently ended up putting it in a bin bag to go home, the model had flown about 1.5 hrs so all was built correct and working fine after a good pre-flight took off and did a few touch and go's then moved on to a few aero's this is my normal flight schedule so nothing out of the ordinary after about the second loop the main wing became un attached sending the main fuselage into the ground subsequently writing the plane off. after close inspection I noticed the wing fixing bolts(plastic) were still in the wing and the wing (balsa) mount had failed! maybe To Much G or the Fact there was a Little wind about 4kts the loop was not out of the ordinary or UN fair to the aircraft in any way and the wing did not de-tach at the heaviest G part of the loop any answers Warranty Claim ???????

forget about warranty,myself and a lot of other people had problems with the vmar beaver,when mcgregor industries were contacted they just ignored our claims,now you know why people rubbish vmars products,you'd have more fun flying the box they came in and using the model to light a bonfire!
