I think its the FMS version 6 or 7. Ive changed the prop to a 14x8 or 14x10.....one or the other. It flies better with a 2 blade. I still have all the other stuff somewhere. I hit a small pole on taxi...you can see the repair I made on the wing. It flies fine. You can fly it on 4S. Ive had the last 2 flights on 5S and it did fine.
Everything works...flaps, retracts...all good

Received a 5S 2650 Battery today.....damaged. 1 cell isnt registering on the balance leads. The total voltage of the pack is 17.88 and if you divide that by 5, its 3.57 a cell.....still way low than it should be if it was shipped on a storage charge.
The packaging is a joke...it was wrapped in padding so tight, it might as well not have any padding. We traded batteries through the classifieds. I shipped him mine in a box with bubble wrap. You can see the way it was shipped to me...inadequate. I tried the battery on 2 different chargers....same result.
Shipped Scorpion stuff, TC-3, 6S Battery, Thrust 30 Motor, JR Radio, Mustang body, and AR7000.
JR Radio....if you look at the receipt, it shows itll get there by wednesday. Use that number to track it. I had to remove the antenna so I could add foam to the front of the radio....be careful unpacking everything as I put foam in there like a puzzle so there was no dead space.
TC-3...I had to take off the body post so the body could go down further in the box and still have room for packing material above it. On the rear post, there is a blue washer that does NOT go between the screw and the body, it goes between the body post and the body. Youll figure it out...If you put it on wrong, the body wont go on there right.
Mustang Body...have fun with all the packing peanuts in that box.
I went up to the post office with $41 to ship 7 items. When the money was gone, I still had 2 packages left..motha$%&^. I went up to a friends work and borrowed $15, went back and shipped the other 2.
Im kinda mad at myself for selling that 6S battery. It cost $8 to ship for a net gain of $9...not even counting paypal fees. I could not have stuffed it into a small flat rate.....no room for foam. I could have sold that battery locally for more than my net.....live and learn.
