Default Outrage QC going down?

Well, I just re-ordered a full tail after a crash. This video is self explanatory.



The parts do not fit together and they came from the same bag so nothing to do with the shop that I bought these from and everything to do with some bad QC. Not only that but I also bought a new front boom block which was missing bolts and half of the locking nuts. Thirdly, the spacer collar that sits between the two bearings on the front TT gear is too long.

I have never had a problem with parts before and now I have 3 separate issues all in one go. Given that other people are reporting similar issues (Dantemcc for example) is Qutrage QC going down the tubes? Tareq leaving a coincidence?

Yeah they mixed fusion with velocity parts it looks like (or maybe new with old)... disappointing!

Outrage is in the process of addressing all issues.
per the President of the company they are aware of some of the issues and complaints and everything is being addressed soon.

please send Larry an Email at HD if you bought from them and he will take care of you,

Good to hear that they are addressing things. Has anyone got any idea on when we might see some of the fruits of the labour?

From what I heard yesterday right after IRCHA.

I got a peek at the CNC tail gears yesterday.

They should give them to the loyal Fusion owners that have had the heli go down because of the gears!

Can’t wait for these CNC gears... that's the only thing that I don’t like about this heli. Not that I have had a gear fail (I have not) but they do wobble, and I hate that fact.

This would be a nice thing for them to do......I had my Fusion taken out by a stripped front, bevel, TT gear and destroyed a bunch of stuff. Then....more than one of the replacement parts were different from the parts I damaged in the crash...different boom block, boom supports, TT ends, TT. I had to re-order a few...If the Fusion didn't fly so well, the crash and mismatched replacement parts would have been enough for me to bail and try another brand kit. But....it's still here.

they are not fixing it so they get your money in repair parts.....

i just put together a fusion kit and the 12 3x10mm bolts called out for holding the tail boom to the frames were too long, or the Hex inserts were not drilled and tapped long enough. i ended up having to grind down all 12 bolts to about 7mm to be able to snug them up.
