Question about Hobby Zone Aerobird 3
I used to be able to push the envelope when flying my AeroBird 3. I would do a near full throttle nose spin, and then finish the maneuver with a loop. I've been doing this for years. Lately, When I even try a simple 1/2 throttle loop and even cutting power once I'm inverted, the wing will "Taco" resulting in an uncontrolled nose spin right into the ground. I told myself that I must have been flying too fast when it happened the first time. But when it happened again, under a low stress conditions, the same thing happened again!! With a cost of $49.99 for a new fuselage, $14.99 for a replacement wing, it's becoming very expensive and a lot less fun to fly as I have to pull back on my skill level to compensate for low integrity of the wing. I have attracted a lot of curious on lookers and have endorsed this model faithfully as a fun, easy, and sturdy plane to fly. I can no longer make this claim. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? Help!! My next step is to try to resolve the week wing issue and the replacement of the fuselage and wing. If they fail to acknowledge the issue, I will charge the item back through my bank and purchase one more through my local hobby shop. I will re-enforce the wing with a coat rod and if that doesn't work, then it's GOODBYE HOBBY ZONE!!! Please advise... Thanks, Kip Berkan, an experienced "Park Flyer"
Best thing to do is find a stiff plastic bar or piece of wood thats obviously not too thick and tape it onto the top of the wing. i had the same problem with my first wing after my 2nd flight with it. i did a loop and as it was coming down the wings folded up...so gutted but i had a wing connector from my old firebird freedom so i taped that on top and now its much stronger than it was new. hope this helps!!!

I normaly only repair large aircraft, but it seems your old good wing was fatigued from regular use and broke, and the new ones are of poor asian quality, thats why they are snaping. i assume the wings are folding up, so on the bottom attach a very thin wire (stainless lockwire if you can get) to the ends of the wing to fuse, at least 30 deg. from wing (like bottom of wing to bottom of fuse)
