I had a window pop up for a 10.00 discount but it was out of the international warehouse. Thats useless due to shipping cost.

I also wonder if the EDF units will explode as well

6S and no retracts?
Simple enough to add but it should come with the option for retracts.

these are awesome flying little birds! look for my mini review soon. though id also like retracts, theres something to be said for keeping it simple sometimes. though the thought of adding my own has certainly crossed my mind that and some flaps

Spinner probably unbalanced. Try balancing it.

the spinner came "pre balanced" lol. I found its method of attachment a little flimsy too. I have 0 issues running without it. performance didn't suffer. how much could it possible hurt when theres a plywood plate with a esc on it right in front of the fan lol. I just assume avoid the headache of attempting to balance it...seeing as how the rest of the motor/rotor assembly probably isn't balanced, it wouldn't do much. the whole assembly needs to be dynamically balanced and I have no way of doing that. it runs almost perfect with the spinner removed so im happy with that.
