The stock arms actually aren't too bad unless you run into immovable objects or land at a downward angle onto the wheel.

My Rpms have held up fairly well, but after over a year of abuse I can see cracks starting in the rear arms where the hinge pins go through.

Well I was looking to buy some Replacements and thought maybe I should swap over to RPM and keep RPM replacements if the stockers are known to have issues but if they should be good to go I'll just buy another set of stock arms as spares

One thing I find helps prolong their life is to boil them for like 5 minutes let them cool down then soak them overnight in WD-40. Do the same thing with the stock wing mount.

I have broken the stock ones trying to keep it landing on wheels but did a hard front slam and one broke. They are cheap to replace and keep from other things from breaking

Will the plastic hold locktite after soaking them in WD 40
