What if you bought one of the original units with issues? Can they be swapped for the corrected units?

No need to return it. They just came with the side plates on the wrong way.
You just flip them inside out to get them correct

not sure what cells are you talking about? if you pick 2500mAH 6s1p 25C EVO25, the cost is exactly same as this pack 179.99usd.

Difference is that the OUTRAGE XP is 30C continous and 15g lighter than EVO25 25C continous.

The FP EVO25 cells are Enerland cells, one of the best cells available, who makes the Outrage cells?. Lots of companies slap 25c, 30c whatever on their packs but it rarely means much (have no idea with the Outrage packs). I have absolutely nothing against Outrage or any other batteries but to me they are new unproven unknown batteries and your asking the same amount for them as proven rock solid batteries, doesn't work for me with the cost of batteries. I do like that they are lighter though. BTW a 30C 2500 battery means an average discharge of 75 amps, that is way above the requirements of the T500, that is about what the burst discharge needs to be, why pay for overhead you don't need? An 18c-20c constant discharge with 30c burst is about perfect. If you really needed a constant discharge rate of 75amps you would have a less than 2 minute flight. Instead of making a 2500mah 30C battery at that weight why not make an 18c 2800mah battery at that weight?

I am sure you will hear something about FP soon. I am glad I didn't stock them.

It seems, that the quality of СNC upgrade parts may be rather poor from time to time.
2 days ago, during my first flight on Trex 500 with mounted Tail Pitch Slider



, it simply fall into pieces - disassembled. Will wait information from producer.
