    Of course, 1S needs no balance.

    Who put it there? They would know. :cool:

    Cut away the heat shrink (Carefully) and see if there's a part # you could google. Then let us know.
    Replace the heat shrink when done, of course.

    You don't need anyone's 'permission', you just have to notify them, and only then if you fly above 400' AGL, and it's within 3 miles. It's the National Model Safety Code:
