it's a great looking kit with some nice laser cut parts. only problem is that one of the wings has been built and it's been damaged. it's repairable but i would like to get a new wing and replace it. just about to email DJ Aerotech but not sure they are even in business anymore? anyone know?

does anyone know if these have been converted to use the ar6400 brick? the kits advise some gwa pico micro servos but not sure they are really needed and they would really up the weight.

the kit comes with it's own geared motor. i was thinking about using this and running it via the 6400 esc and throttle. the motor looks to be geared. can anyone see any issues wih this?

i was also going to run a 1s lipo rather than the nimh it came with.on the site they recomend a 2cell 200mah battery but i think this might be a bit overkill. even more so if i can drop the weight down by using the brick.

any other usefull advice on this? ta
That motor is going to want more than 3.7V... 1S would only have about 1/3 the thrust of 2S.

The best thing to do is use a cheap 2S, Lipo compatible brushed ESC with the AR6400:
