Default Flyfly free bird hotliner

Maiden flight with the recommended hot set up. Five minutes into ripping up the skies,, the firewall ripped off!! Down went a very nice motor, carbon fiber folder, and lost my 3s TP V2 2200.

Inspection shows a clear mfg. flaw. The kit looked good, and the build is for an experienced builder since there are no instructions.

So a shout out to flyfly for poor QC!! Thanks for wasting my time + money.
This was my first and last time building and fly a flyfly product.

OUCH! I know that had to hurt! Now I know why I always build what I fly. That way I don't have to worry about poor QC.
