    still no hope of getting the grand tundra flying,finally got the batt tray and glue after a lot of insisting,new hatch also arrived but had to cut out the magnets as they were the wrong way round,wires seem to be ok so decided to build it all up,not enough vortex generators,missing nuts for the u/c and flaps on one wing loose and not aligned properly,also the motor sound like its got a loose magnet,i want a exchange plane now but as ive not got the original pakageing so I don't know if that's going to be possible but as they don't list spare wings and motor I don't see what choice they have.moan over.

    Reading this is leaning more towards neglect. To make this right they should ship an entirely new plane and just let it go. They have your online receipt, purchase information and the ONLY bullet point they can argue about is shipping.

    I'd be making a bunch of noise about this. Poking at them everyday until something happens.

    I can't help it but lose a little more respect in HK's products and customer handling skills. It frustrates me just knowing this is happening to the honest customer.

  8. Glad you finally got it in the air, can't imagine how frustrating the whole ordeal was.
