Hi guys.

There is something you should about about the first 2 releases:
- Turbocoptero
- Explorador (explorer)

Back then we didnt know that but as time passed we discovered a problem with the head/torso, a chemical reaction of sorts that leaves this mark on the neck.

Something you should know about the first 2 releases 20200612

This mark came with time and it due the contact of the head and neck. All other releases are safe from this problem.
So regarding turbo/explorer:
- if you purchase it, no matter when, it will show the mark eventually,
- best way to remove is with a hairdyer then softly pull it with a wooden tool.
- it is someking of "glue" than heat turns soft.
- if you remove it will pop again, so most people use sylicone to avoid it.

It was a really turn off but it is safe to point that it was solved.
Estrela did help us and we could send the defect body and they sent us a new one, but sadly this recall couldnt be done by overseas and foreign costumers.

Yea, mine did it too. But it doesn't seem to hurt it too much.

Yes but i would recommend some inspection here and there. There are claims this "erodes" the plastic. I believe this is false but in any case...
