So far I've noticed that the motors will pop out of the retaining clip after a hard crash. Not sure if I want to fix that as it could prevent breakage. However one of them popped out so far it ripped out a motor wire and I had to do some tricky soldering to fix it.

Also, I managed to mess up one of the white plastic gears in a crash and it doesn't mesh smoothly with the spur gear on the motor. It still flies, but it takes a second to spool up that one prop so I'm going to get a replacement. Not sure there is any real way to avoid that from occurring other than not crashing.

Finally, does anyone have a cheap source for the little JST to micro adapter wire that comes with this? I have a 4 port charger that came with my MSR that I would like to use to charge 4 of the MQX batteries at the same time but I need 3 more adapters. Can't seem to find them on HobbyKing but I'm sure they are out there somewhere.

Going to order some of these props and these batteries today.
