I also run Li-Po on my 3PK.....keeps my arms feeling great for the finals.

Hi

Where can I get the VXR regulator ?

To be honest, I am really dissappointed with Serpent. This is my second 720 kit and I am still having problems. With my first kit, the rear arms were faulty. Now, I have parts missing and the upgraded parts don't work the way they should

Really not what I expected after spending more than $400 on a kit!!!

Thanks

Acid
Acid have you contacted serpent about this?I am having a similar problem right now with a 720 kit and I talked with Roniel at serpent usa and he is taking care of the problem for me.

Acid,

we are human and sometimes we can make mistakes. Anyway to help solving your problem, , check under your kit box, there is a sticker it some numbers, etc. Make a copy of this, contact your vendor about it and send the copy of that info. They should contact their distributor and fix your problem.

Hope this info can help

Eduardo,

We sent replacements caps to all our dealers inmediately after the release of the first batch of kits (the one that had that problem). Contact the dealer you purchased and you should get caps

hi, did you file the battery cover so that the Li-Po batts could fit from what i've seen the VXR Li-Po receiver batts are a bit wider than the Ni-Mh receiver batts
