I think in their haste to save a few bucks in shipping costs they have gone down the wrong road.
It does, and so happens that it is located so close to the model's rear end support. That plastic square won't hold long before giving up. Can anyone imagine a weak tail end letting go in flight?
They have just killed a nice model. No longer a viable option to rank beginners.
