Default carbon z yak warning: battery tray failure!

The battery tray on the carbon z yak is held in with a few dabs of glue!! I watched as my friends yak spit out the battery (still strapped to the tray) and floated gently to an inverted landing.

Took out the cowl and ruined the battery.

If your going to do 3D with this plane you need to strap the battery tray to the fuse.

Really? Wow. Are you sure it wasn't just your friends plane? Seems pretty sturdy on mine, but I have yet to fly it.

"I didn't crash... I just did an inverted nose landing!"

I think it was just his plane. The hobby shop gave him a a complete new plane and sent the old one back to horizon.

The new plane's battery tray is still just glued in but thisone has ALOT more glue on it.

That's impressive service from a local hobby shop.
