Yes, the lower section of the body intake comes off the plane with some careful pulling. The factory glue that is used is foamy like "uhu por" glue, which releases when you want it to. I use 5min epoxy when I put it back together but surfaces must be sanded or epoxy will not hold. I moved the receiver where the ESC used to be, and made a new spot for the ESC back 3 inches further so the plane would balance with the 850mAh 3S pack almost all the way forward so bigger batteries will balance. Plastic is placed over the receiver and wires in the intake, with the ESC exposed for cooling. Prior to flying. A carbon spar aides in holding the ESC, should the epoxy let go. Another spar adds rigidity to the airframe so I doesn't deform when I hand launch it. The elevators are also reinforced with carbon. The batteries are shown in the balanced and ready to fly positions. I broke the fan in by running it at low rpms to wear the blades even as some rubbed on the housing slightly at higher rpms.
