The 300 might be slightly easier to fit. I fly my zero with a 300 in it with stock 7x6 prop and stock ESC on 3s with no issues. Although I think the 340 might have more power
We'll be very interested to hear how it goes

I'll be running it on 3s with an 8x4 prop. I've been using that on my Crack Yak and it's a rocket.

Well i made the mistake of not reversing the polarity on the rudder servo and that burned out then i reversed it on the aileron but the extension is what reversed that and i wasn't using the extension so i burned that out. So now i'll have to wait probably months before they get the servo in stock that i need. (i'm using a hitec minima RX, ALL LEADS NEED TO HAVE + AND - REVERSED FROM STOCK CONFIGURATION)

I know someone had there rudder servo burn out, can you give me a link to the servo they sent you as a replacement please?

Got mine from here. Really quick delivery with extra battery. A good micro flash card is a must but worth every penny.

Here is the one they are sending me. It's junk but I wanted something from them. You could use the second link and it's probably better than stock.

I'm wondering how well the park 340 will do on 2s. If the park 340 puts out more than 100 watts on 2s with 8x3.8 prop then we might have something nice here. The 2s lipo is around 25-30g, that's about 15g lighter than stock but park 340 motor weighs 7g more than stock so in the end you're still around 8g less than stock. It won't be as fast as stock but with a 8x3.8 prop it should create more thrust and prop wash for slower 3d flying. Just change the prop to a 7" and go 3s for a high speed thrill. I'm hoping to get the best of both worlds with this park 340, we'll find out next week!

A v2 edge would be cool, keep the original and make minor improvements but a v2 with as3x and a red bull scheme would be the way to do it!
