Both my kits came with Lanxiang labeled 4S batterys (saw previous posts regarding usage of 4S packs). In one plane the rear retract servo is already broken--- the front retract servo won't retract the the gear all the way--will have to replace those. I noticed these are glued in place---whats the best way to remove them without killing the surrounding foam?
I installed and removed the gear on an ARF. I didn't glue mine in. You'll have to remove the glue best you can with maybe a knife and needle nose pliers? After that they are probably screwed in. These pics should give you an idea. It will be easier unscrewing these than unscrewing the beef with the suppliers. On the retraction problem, it might be the wire link adjustments rather than the servo, its a trial to get it all just so. Great good luck with the plane, it's fantastic and well worth the effort when you see it up there.
