Hope this comes soon, holding out on another FW3A to rather wait for the quad. Big Smile

Hard to tell from the pictures… is the headlamp bezel press in or screw in?

Although I really, really hope whoever manufactures these will have learned from the dangerous problems that showed up for some of us with the current light caused by metallic debris causing mistaken signals and electrical short circuits in the switch and under the driver. Wiping out the metal scraps and looking for rough edges on the threads that can break off in use should be part of finishing up production, along with lubricating threads and O-rings.

Make it better.

PS, if you talk to the manufacturer about instituting a QA/QC program, which would be a good idea, you can point out to them that it’s not only their production shop that has screwed this kind of thing up. That is if it will be made by the same people. If it’s subcontracted out to a new supplier, please talk with them about this.

An example of how it’s done wrong elsewhere:

Quote:
Barnett’s description of the safety issues is terrifying. For example, the process of tightening the titanium nuts on the floorboard-bolts caused “3-long, razor sharp titanium slivers to cascade into the compartment where all the sensitive avionics wiring ran. Though the FAA eventually ordered Boeing to stop shipping planes whose wiring compartments were full of loose, razor-sharp metal shards, the company had already shipped 800 planes …

Don’t fly in a Dreamliner, it might catch fire. And, well, flashlights should be safer and better made than Boeings. Is that asking too much?

It’s the same manufacture, lumintop.

I’d also like confirmation the bezel is screw-in and the driver is also accessible on the HL3A.

 hi, HL3A bezel is screwed, and the retaining ring on driver is screwed too, not glued
