Wing Strut Mounting Blocks Review
It is my opinion that like the struts themselves, they have a weak point, and that weak point is the same point that is on the end of the struts. At the mounting point the plastic is about 1/2 as thick as the rest of the strut. This was done for the sake of realism so that when the struts and mounting blocks are bolted together (actually tiny bolts and hex nuts), the fact that each has been shaved to 1/2 thickness makes for a very realistic mount with no extra bulk. However, this makes for a weakened joint, especially if some type of thread-locker is applied to the bolt ends. If you sdo this then there is a high probability that when you go to loosen the bolt the hex nut will turn with it and destroy at least either the strut end or the mounting block. Please be careful. I've had trouble loosening up these joints WITHOUT using a thread-locker. Please be careful because you need those struts if you do other than gentle maneuvers. Regarding the bolts/screws themselves, some other have noted that they are too short. I have not experienced this problem. The bolts are exactly the right length.
I crashed my 55" Cessna, broke the support struts. Looked every where for replacements. The only place I even saw them offered on line is Motion RC. Thanks Motion RC , would have had to buy fuselage just to get the supports. Oh, by the way I made an additional support on the fuselage to attach floats. WORKS GREAT !!!
Excellent replacement part
The mounting blocks are good quality and were easy to attach to the plane.
