Mine just arrived today.

Does anyone else have issues with the charger? Seems like the battery doesn't really want to lock into the charger, and I had a hard time getting it to make a connection (yes, I have the polarity right).

I have the Traxxas QR-1 too. Can I use its batteries in the Ares? And, can I use the Traxxas charger with the Ares battery? They look identical...

The extra/open port is a 2-pin connector primarily intended to provide power to the optional LED light kit that's in development now. So unfortunately no on servos but yes on (hopefully!) lights for flying at night/in the dark

Carrying bombs are against FAA regs, but you can clearly carry a one pound sized coconut and drop it on a target.

Ah yes, and you can indeed use the port for that (but you might have to hand-launch the combination off a very high cliff to give it a fighting chance)

Fixed my own issue... you just have to push the battery in quite hard.

I got a chance to fly one of these at my local hobbytown yesterday. I've been flying a 1SQ for about a month now and this little quad seems to be a cousin. It flew pretty well with the stock controller. Don't expect too much from the stock controller as mentioned above I found the sticks to be a little soft an unresponsive especially around the center. Maybe there's an adjustment. I'd be surprised if at least some of the parts aren't interchangeable between the two quads.

Who sells parts??
I'd like to buy a body.
I made a body out of a V911 heli body, but it would be easier just to buy one.
Thanks for any info, Butch
