I have TEN Hobbico Micros. The Nieuport is the worst of the lot! It is extremely fragile; the rudder cannot be touched lest the ridiculously small hinge (on the lower portion only) become useless. The dummy "rotary engine" is merely glued into the cowl area in an approximate location. The prop shaft is angled about 1/8" too low, as well as too far right to about the same extent. There isn't clearance inside the cowl to 1.) make the dummy motor actually ROTATE, nor to fashion a 1/16" dummy of your own. The cowl has to be removed (good luck) to fix these problems, including the repositioning of the motor!
