Motor board replacement

The mother of all motor boards
Have to cut half of the nose off to install but it was a perfect fit and worked out very well. Thanks MRC.
Install it first landing and not a rough one the thing shattered unuseable
One of the worst parts of this model is the nose wheel, they should fire the guy that designed it, the NEW nose wheel set up is exactly the way it was supposed to be, durable. You'll find it a challenge to replace the motor mount/firewall, but it can be accomplished if you take your time, I used 5min epoxy to set it back in place. Although you are not supposed to land on the nose wheel, ahem, the built in suspension works like a dream, of course not from personal experience, ahem.... well worth the money and you couldn't get it from a better hobby shop.
