Orange RX (ORX) 3-axis stabilzer (3AS) module from Hobby King. At $14.99/ea., it is a bargain, but some reports mention gain being highly non-linear, so it will most likely require some tweaks to tune it to my planes.

2S charge harness/adapter for the batteries using a Micro Deans 3-pin connector, a JST plug and balance lead from a 2S battery.
Batteries with the newer 3-pin DMCs on them
The 3-pin DMCs are easier to use than the stock Eflite plugs, and are available at many LHS outlets. The Eflite plug is a special one ONLY for this size of battery. Phooey! ;)
Oblique view of the new (lowered) battery tray made with 1/32" hard ply. Affixed with white glue to the foam after cutting/placement.
Another view. Batteries sit flush with the rearmost top part of the battery compartment for proper CG of 19mm aft of the bottom leading edge.
