Picked up a new prop - much smoother and quieter. Maybe even a longer flight without all that energy spent shaking her around.

You can get the high-performance Hyperion 70 mAh cells here. They provide lots of punch, they're designed for 5c charging, and they typically last for hundreds of cycles at 5c charge: http://www.allerc.com/hyperion-g3-cx...ct-p-5626.html

the plastic struts that hole the landing gear broke on mine. Does anyone have ideas on how to redo the landing gear better? You cant buy the plastic struts, they are part of the airframe. I'm wondering if theres another type of gear that can snap on and off or some suggestions on how to make some like that.

something like this http://www.e-fliterc.com/Products/De...rodID=EFLU4055

Hot glue the replacement landing gear in place along the post. Easy and quick to do!

Hot glue is amazing for fixing micros. Use it on heli landing gears and other micros.

Thanks for the reminder about hot glue. my gear was broken too so I took the wheels and attached them to some CF micro heli tail boom supports and made some new landing gear then hot glued it to the plane. Worked out well.
