    Thanks for the replies. I have checked the volts after the LVC with my multimeter and it was 3.68 so no concerns there. I'll stop worrying and keep on flying...um, crashing.

    I can't lie. I've had a couple issues in my 16 months of ownership that have made me consider ditching the quad. The factory warranty for XMRs are limited to 6 months which is ridiculous. But when...

    Common misconception that the XMR's are poor trail bikes but it simply isn't the case. Sure they are big (we both have the 2 up chassis) but very capable. We do a good mix of mud and trail...
