Hi, anyone got some recommendation on the needed hex tools ? A eBay link would be awesome.

Avoid using included tools. They strip the heads,
Instead buy higher quality tools in the sizes below:
0.9mm, (2) 1.3mm, 1.5mm.

I would only use MIP Thorp drivers:

Didnt find any of them in my country, and listing on ebay it just knocked me above the 30$ limit that I have in my country before I have to pay 25% tax and a 10$ fee

How about this set?

+1 on MIP drivers. x1000 better than anything else. Especially for the small stuff. Once you try them you will never go back.

Default Landing gear / battery lead

I just bought a 150 and have flown it a few times, the other day I crashed it, bent the main shaft, and that was about it. When it crashed the landing gear came off, (nothing broke) but I noticed how the battery connector is mounted to the gear, and the wire is soldered to the board.

Have any of you had a crash where it tears the wire out?
I was thinking about maybe putting a little deans connector inline as a break away point in the wiring. I would like some of your thoughts or suggestions on this, Thank you!

Its a pretty big wire with big solder points. I think I've "tested" that enough and I'd say its not going to tear off the MRS. The battery tends to eject if its a violent crash anyway.

Default Feathering shaft

After doing my crash repairs last night, I wanted to install the Lynx LX0932 Ultra dampeners and used an Xtreme feathering shaft. My only decision to use the extreme parts were based on price, you get 3 for a low price.Upon installing the feathering shaft I just barely tightened the screws and stripped one out, and I mean barely, luckily the parts came with 3, so I just snugged the next one down more carefully. Do any of you prefer any particular upgrade on the feathering shaft?

Are there replacement tail fins for the metal tail motor mount? I've broken the carbon fin again and don't want to purchase a 3rd metal motor mount just for the carbon fin that comes with it.

Edit. Should have known that Dylan would have them. Hopefully it fits the align branded motor mounts.
