That being said it flew wonderfully.

My LHS sells a 300mah 30c 2 cell that is virtually the same dimension as the stock battery and only 3 dollars more. It has a UMX connector and they assured me it would work well in my UM Stryker and my friends Mig-15. I can't remember the maker but will post it up with pics if I get some.

I am eager to try the prop. you mentioned. Do I need the adapter for smaller than 4mm?
You have to change the dual rate settings on your transmitter for the d/r switches to work.

The prop is a direct fit.

Glad to hear you enjoy it so much!

One issue I noticed, the screw that holds the prop on comes loose and the prop comes loose too..after only 7 or so flights (for me). I can tighten it up but want to avoid it coming loose at all.

Question: What should I use to keep it from coming loose without my permission?

You think Blue Loctite will do the trick? Lowes or Home Depot didn't carry it, had to pick this up from ACE Hardware:

For me in No. Cal. it was $77 with shipping and tax. I passed. Good deal but I'm liking my 540QQ a lot better! I may put my crashed Stryker back together some day.

If you "like" them on Facebook you get a $5 credit and there's a new customer discount. Could get it for $48 shipped!! That's crazy.

I didn't do the FB thing, but I got the new customer discount, so it was about $53 and change, I'm pretty sure that's less than the RX sells for at the local hobby shop, that's a great deal for sure.

I tried the Facebook thing, and it gave me $5 off, but it took away the free shipping (which was $4.99). With the sales tax savings, it would've saved me a penny or two. I went with a newcustomer discount and saved another buck ($53.08 total).
