In my order №**2003979279 I received aircraft Hobbyking Bixler EPO 1400mm. During packing the aircraft was damaged. The tip of the wing was very much bent. please help me find wings for my Bixler. I really need the reference to "native" wings or their equivalents. I hope very much for your help. Please help.

Try pouring boiling water on the bent part, it may straighten up as the heat causes the foam to expand back to its original shape.

Thank you very much for your advice. A wing does not suffer even more? I'm afraid to make the situation worse

do not pour boiling water on ur plane
look in forum and u will c it is a process involving hot water but not boiling and not poured on ur plane

the major issu is lack of psrts from HK
Stocking Spare parts has never been a top priority for HK

I have the following planes out of commision due to lack of spare parts

3 HobbyKing A10 2x75mmEDF 3 fusil and 1 cell set
2 HobbyKing P-51D Mustang Plug-n-Fly need motor mounts
2 Dynam Meteor 70mm EDF both need fusilage
1 Cougar F9F 70mm edf need empennage
1 Pheonix 2000 Glider needs 1 wing
1 Striker 64mm EDF needs tail+rudder
1 Hobby King jettiger need ARF version
1 Deluxe light plane with flaps my learner plane need evrything lol

FYI The HK A-10s are also sold by hobby lobby in the usa They have sold spare parts for two years but only ship to usa HK stocked this plane for three years and got NO Parts At ALL

After seeing other companies offer the parts for sale and 12 dispointments from HK i decided i will not buy any plane unless the spares are already stocked (and it is EPO).

I didn't say to pour the water on the plane, only on the bent wing. I got a Bixler from HK which arrived with the same problem, and after advice from others on the forum, I poured the water on the wing and like magic it came back to its original shape. Obviously you don't pour huge quantities of water on it, just a very small amount enough to heat it up and make the air in the foam expand.

The boiling water will not cause the wing any pain at all - definitely won't suffer.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes & dreams.
