View Full Version : Slave I wings a little loose?

Hey guys just a quick question for all who have opened with their Slave I's

It's not a big deal but I was just wondering if my Slave I was the only one that does this. On the wing, the sort of sloping pipe that attaches the wing to the ship is sort of wobbly, not when you fly the ship or move it around, just if you touch the connecting pipe. It's really not a big deal because there's no way it will come out unless you pull on it really hard.
But I was just curious if this is a pretty normal occurance with everyones loose Slave I's.

Thanks for your input :)

"Loose" is a relative term, but I think you could quantify the wing-braces on my Slave I as loose. They're not "falling off the ship" loose, but they're looser than the actual wings.

My left one is a little "looser" than the right. They aren't falling off of mine either. I hope yours aren't!!! If they are... I'd take it back to get a new one if I were you!

Yes, they are loose. If you go to yakface.com, under their features section, there is an extensive review of the AOTC Slave I, and they mention the "wobbly" wings.

My right one doesn't quite flip into place as well as the other one either. It seems to flop a bit

Yeah well I guess thats the norm. What you all discribed is what I have. It's not a big deal and the wings are not gonna fall off, it's just if you wiggle them they feal loose. No big deal, I just wanted to make sure I didn't have a defective one. Thanks for the input guys :)

pthfinder, that thing with the wing not slipping into place, I have that same issue. If I turn the starboard one (that is, the one on the right in "flight" position), the port one doesn't fully respond, yet if I turn the port one, the starboard one responds fine.
