Nope... they are coax tandem boards... single coax board wouldn't be able to mix the dual rotors.

Could you put a link to the batteries you got? I just got two off Ebay that dont fit. The connector is the same type, just twice as large!

You gotta get a new crew. there's too many people named Jake.

Nice flight, I enjoy flying mine inside. But mine is grounded right now. Had a slight mishap and broke rotor link thing. No spares. Plus you have to buy a part you don't need just to get two links? That doesnt seem right. Anyway, I have some spares coming. I also tried to use a different battery, but it just did not fly right at all. Battery was basicaly the same weight but used the bigger connector, so I tried different mounting location, but was no go. Wouldnt fly right and I crashed, breaking the link. I guess I could try to fly it with my 160mah TP's, and just have shorter flight times. But, like I said, grounded for now because of the link. And I dont want to scavenge one off of my MCX2.

I suppose it didnt sell that well? Why else would they have discontinued this model. I love mine, it's unique in a class with many, many coax heli's.
Lol, that's usualy how my flights end too. But a little crash like that won't hurt this bird.
