I have already put in the brushless motor and esc so i suppose there is no going back to the stock motor but.... still on the box the airplane comes in it should say in big letters 7.4 volt battery only.
btw I also clipped off the crappy stock connectors and went to e-flites ec2's much better connector. got that tip from this forum i do believe.
other than motor/esc issues i think great airplane just wish the tx could have be buddy box-able so i didnt have to buy two more tx 's so i could buddy box with my father in law
Don't look back.
You're better off moving forward.
As a rule, a Tx that comes with a RTF plane is pretty crappy. They are functional but severely lack critical features such as dual rates, expo and buddy box ports.
