Can't believe that even part of the roof broke off. I wonder how that happened?!

Quote from Otto on the issues with the M5...

Quote

We did have some quality problems on the M5, it would be lying to deny it.
We are now taking action to fix this problem.

After the Chinese new year holiday, many of our experts did not come back, as it happens often in China so we had to train new people.

Today, this new team is trained and i have confidence that upcoming models are going to reach the quality we had couple of month ago.

It is not easy to deal with these unpredictable events but i can promise that we are putting all our energy to come back to normal.

We are really sorry for those who received defect models but as you know, we will take our responsabilities and refund all the people who faced this problem

Wow that looks terrible lol

It's a shame this had to happen to the M5 out of all models they produced..so in the end there's really less than 2000 units not counting defective ones.

I was wondering why they'd started going backawrds in terms of QC etc, I wonder if they'll re-release the model, defect free?

At least Otto is honest about the defects and admits it. Hope they get back to their normal quality level.

All credit to OttO for heir statement on the manufacturing process  :clap:    But the damage to the last M5 surely seems to be caused by impact....one would presume in transit... :twocents:

BTW i'm surprised just how thick that resin is!!

There resin models from Otto are quite hearty in the weight department.  Must of been substantial impact for that kind of damage!

No way a seat would have torn the roof off..I think it may have been mishandled at some point.

Actually it is totally possible. Resin is extremely brittle. It is not strong, but worst of all does not allow flex. Also it is extremely porous material. In other words a couple of small bubbles in the mold (almost always there) that are in "the wrong lace" and a loose seat banging against the roof can cause the damage. Resin also shatters, because it can not handle stress. So when it breaks it brakes in more than one place.
But all this is irrelevant. The model is crap now and it should be sent back.
