    Well, I said I would not buy a turbine jet, well, here we go, I bought a DV8R new in the box, really I bought two new DV8R, but like must of them, the canopy was crack, but a easy repair, I will post some pictures, as I go forward. And I bought a JetCat P8Ose turbine.

    Well, the DV8R has 10 flights on her, having a little trouble with the nose gear, the pin is weak, order a 6mm drill rod, hoping it would fix the issue, Not !!!, it bent faster, so I order another 6mm drill rod, this time a lot harder steel, hoping it will do better !!!

    Will you have a flight photo or video that we can see some time soon? And I hope your new drill rod will make it work better for you.
