It only applies if you bought a transmitter AND one or two receivers at the same time. You can send in the barcodes from the package and receive the same receiver/s free from Spektrum. There is a thread about it here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=831852

These look great but do they enhance the performance of the 4#3?
Is the fibreglass kit any lighter that the stock plastic frame?
Thanks very much.

The G10 frame is slightly heavier but the heli is more balanced and the extra weight makes it fly a bit more stable. The Carbon frame is a bit lighter. No results of flight tests yet from any one, it should retain the same characteristics though and may increase flight time and tail stability due to lighter weight .

Other benefit is they are stiffer and stronger than stock.

Flying with the G10 frame the 4-3 is much more stable than stock. Balance is improved and it feels very stable in a hover. With the carbon frame everything should be even better because the heli retains it's stock weight but improves balance.

Hey Mario,
Do you use CNC to cut those frames? What programs are you using?
