    RE: GUANLI MODEL...WARBIRDS

    The GuanLi models seem to be a bit more user friendly with the brushless power systems some vendors are adding to them.

    I just turned mine around and I noticed the little nipple you are talking about. The worst that would happen is the tip of the nipple would rear off and cause a little slop in the rear arm that can...

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread
