Exactly what I do with mine. Remove the nose to charge batteries contained in there and the rest of the fuse stays together. I do take off the tail feathers, however but I leave the H-Stab spar in...

Yes sir, I agree. Not sure what happened but it is what it is. We've been able to match the orange now and the plane is almost done. Once I get it back, I just have to redo the rear wiring harness...

Definitely. I remember you doing this fix on your T1. I guess I was just a little disappointed when you order the "matching" paint from the factory and it isn't even close. Not that it was a lot...

Hey Kenrico,

I got the plane down sans rudder. Luckily, I still had elevator. There's some significant damage to the rear portion of the fuse, the main part of the fuse, and a little of the...

I don't think one failure constitutes a recall. It's possible one bad turbine wheel slipped through the cracks (pun noted but not intended). I have several friends running 235's just fine and it's...
