    This morning I decided to check the backside of my bird and noticed a few hair line cracks on the body. Nothing concerning at the moment(although it prompted me to purchase a new shell ASAP).
    Anyway, I purchased it late June of this year, I have flown it some 60 or so flights. Is this normal wear? Anybody else experienced this?
    I've opened the body a few times. I'm sure I torqued on the bolts to much... Just remember seeing this on my blade 350 but never expected it to happen on this one... Body seems to be a lot tougher...

    I don't suppose you could capture that in a pic and post could you?

    I just received mine but haven't flown it yet.

    Unfortunately I just filled the small hair line cracks with a tad bit of baking soda and crazy glue. Of course I was careful not to get any in the bird or in the motors. Seemed to do the trick..filled cracks. BAnd aide til I get new shell...

    If you are using loctite around the plastic it will make it brittle and cause these cracks.
