Fantastic news! So that means I'll align my motor pointing slightly upwards on mine to totally remove the diving effects. Will post pics of my motor mounting mods.

Thanks a lot.

That means ' junglegym' must have sanded the battery area since he managed to squeeze in a 4S 2200mah into his.

I will try fitting a 2200mah 3S on mine later.

So that's what that big round piece of metal is for. Was wondering what the heck it was for.
