design faults and manufacturing faults in full size aircraft run into the hundreds on some designs. For example the Rotax 80 HP 912 engine has over 150 mods and special inspections. How many 3D type A/C with that long spindly landing gear have you seen it tore off on a normal landing. If you want something built perfect to your standards build it your self.

Arf almost ready to fly! Not almost ready to repair!

I completely disagree! Lots of great arfs, but just like cars and everything else's in this world ---- slips thru the quality control. Ideally it never happens! But when it does, this is one important aspect of a good arf vendor, ie stepping up to the plate and making things right! Sometimes that mean replacement, sometimes that means a repair. But whats right in each case depends on the buyers skills and time!

In this case the buyer bought an arf, not a kit. He should expect a complete arf, and nothing less!
This hobby is a Slickness!

This precisely my point. At the onset of this thread, you mentioned that the ARF was manufactured by a quality and responsible company and sold to you by a reputable dealer. The result of your experience and subsequent outcome proved that to be true. Two thumbs up for this manufacturer and vendor.
