Quote from: teslahed on Friday,August 10, 2012, 13:00:07 I've heard that a lot of the different clones of this frame were made with slightly different grades of plastic so depending on where and when people bought them they may have gotten more or less resilient frames. Having looked closely at one from RCtimer myself i suspect the RCtimer ones are more than strong enough compared to most other frames. I think the best option for anyone who thinks they may crash a lot is to buy a couple of spare arms with the quadcopter so you don't have to wait for replacements to ship later. In a bad enough crash something is always going to break - if the arms are the cheapest part that can take the hit it's best if they go first.
