Opologies for hogging the page with another minor fault report guys, but your elevator functioning might need adjustment also . . Jonno (UK) mentioned that his elevator servo did not centre cleanly and so he changed it . . but I wonder if he actually had the same fault as my elevator servo . . until today the elevator push rod passed over the rudder control arm, but I found that it was pressing down so hard on the rudder control arm that it was bending between that crude plywood guide plate hole and the elevator servo control arm . . the poor elevator servo didn't stand a chance of centring cleanly . . so I removed the elevator control arm and passed the elevator push rod "under" the rudder control arm, while at the same time inverting the push rod so it now comes "up" through the elevator control arm hole, instead of down through the hole (this lowers the push rod by about 4mm so that it passes "under" the rudder servo control arm, but without actually touching it . . best also to wiggle the plywood guide plate out of it's slot, since it needs lowering (or removing) . . the easiest option was to just glue it on the end face of the plywood servo tray (but about 6mm lower) so that the elevator push rod passes roughly through the centre of the plywood guide plate . . "hey presto", no more elevator push rod binding, resulting in good elevator servo centring without changing it.

After reading the historic comments regarding a potentially dangerous method of fitting the prop adapter I was a little concerned, but after my purchase (Feb 2015) I found the method of mounting more than adequate . . the prop adapter is a sturdy lump, bolted to the alloy revolving casing of the outrunner motor with four high tensile steel socket head set screws . . if there was a problem in the past I personally don't see one now.

Servos of poor quality, the stab unresponsive. I just saw the destruction of the aircraft, with nothing to do ... HobbyKing planes had finished! Very very disappointed

Be careful this product is not yet debugged and has some real deficiencies. Also you cannot get replacement parts. Specifically the prop adapter is stupidly designed and will break very easily and you cannot get replacement parts so you have to upgrade the whole motor. There are also other quality and design issues. Wait until they iron out the problems before you spend the money.

Great sport plane, servos and geometry is not 3d capable but with around 20mins work and some nice 15mm balraced standoffs from HK ($3) the throws were doubled. See review and pics on RCgroups thread.

I wanted a black color. But the orange color has been sent. No errors in this type of compensation. HK a little more attention, please!

HK's answer to the prop adapter problem was for me to buy a whole new motor. This prop adapter is designed so that there is only 1/16 inch of very soft aluminum holding the prop on to the motor. It will initially support flight loads but over time will work harden and fracture. You best hope that you or none of your friends is in the way when the prop comes flying off. I'm sure that the airplane flies well but this problem is sever enough that you should not buy this product until it is solved.
