For those who have given up on HobbyKing's USA store, they are on the shelf at the Hobby People store near me.

Great post, acuamie! I don't know where the metal part came from, but I think it might be the balast in the front?

Thanks for sharing these pics with us. The FMS clevises seem the way to go. Do you have a link for them?

Never got that with my Phoenix. .

But as said , , it could be a balance weight if you don't fit a motor...


Or if you ordered from HobbyKing...


It could be the "Long Wait"....
