Instructions is ok but not great but read it twice, measure twice and cut once dry fit and then glue you should be on the right track

Just tried it out with a 3S pack (approx 100g lighter than the 2S pack) and it hit its + max power as it started to wobble but hey Mrs. Tica hasn't been on more than 50% throttle with the 2S pack and I can use the 3S for another project
