    Sorry, got some part numbers mixed up.

    Couldnít you just power them off of a 3S balance plug?

    I use the 4S balance connector to run the 12v cooling fan on my X. It runs really fast too.

    I am finding OEM parts for the Hoss are still hard to find so direct fit bodies and other aftermarket parts will just take time.
