I, too, lament that the group effort hasn't worked out.

Mr. Holt, more or less single handedly took matters in his own hands and simply wrote what amounted to a new manual. He's since added what...

Without a doubt, the landing gear is weak; more specifically, the gear tears out a good portion of the fuse when (not if) you land in grass or even hit a rock. The downside of using nylon bolts is...
