I fly mine without the canopy. It flew off one day during a reverse Cuban Eight. The battery and the canopy both flew out. The plane amazingly floated to the ground upside down with almost no damage on landing. I never found the canopy or the battery. I'm sure they're hiding in the woods somewhere. But, the plane still flies beautifully.

I was down for a bit after using my (1) battery on a big quad which crashed, just a few days ago I had the bright idea that I could snag a series connector and run 2x 3s 2700 60c together. It works great, kicking myself for taking so long to figure it out. Now I have at least two batteries to use, if my similar 3300 batteries aren't too heavy. I doubt they are. This will also bring my giant su47 back to life, along with my 6s parkzone habu. I just really didn't want to buy 6s batteries, they're not especially budget friendly.

As-shipped, my Spledors included a Y-harness allowing two 3S packs to be used as one 6S pack. You're expected to have those blue EC3 connectors on your batts for compatibility but it should have been in the box.

.. a lot of them shipped without it in the box despite it being advertised as included

Horizon did provide you one if you contacted them about the mistake

If it did, it's still in the box, which is now in my attic. Oh well, I use xt60 anyway.

I'm selling my Splendor this year because it fly's so good it was the only plane I flew last year. I have 8 other planes that I did not get out to fly. My son has one so I can still fly one if I want.

Two great flights today. Love the power and stability. I've gotta turn down the gains on all three axes, it was very windy and I feel like the gyros were overcompensating.
