Hi Bostomper!

I mounted a Firepower 10 that would have the same mounting hole pattern as the 15 and I used a Dremel to carefully elongate the mounting plate holes. It seems to hold well.

However, I am not happy with flight times I am getting from the 2200 mah batteries. Anywhere from 4 to 6 minutes. I just bought a 2800 mah battery from Value Hobby that fits pretty well in the battery compartment but have not had any air time yet.

I am thinking of dropping back to the Firepower 480 Sport from Heads Up maybe even the 450 size.

I would be interested in hearing your flight times when you get it in the air with the 15.
