The Longtail is in good shape, the package with nuts and bolts were busted and not all of them was in there, had to find what i needed. The props look good and are cut for a keyway slot, but there is no keyway slot on the shaft. I hope it holds up without the key way. Other then that everything else looks great and went together well.
