Wow those are some crazy big lipos. Things have changed since I left the hobby, nice to see you can finally get some high mah batts to give good run times. I know when I had my MMP there was lots of issues with people trying to run 4-6s causing it to fry. Unless things have changed the MMP can't handle anything over 3s but your safe on 2s.

Dual sticks can be found for cheap now days if you check out some from china and I think would work better for packing around in the field IMO. Check hobbyking for some along with lipos. :)
What batts will you be running to power the truck for those speeds and distance?

Did you figure out the leak? I have a T8.1 sitting BNIB waiting for my son for christmas and wondering if I should air it up to make sure all is good.
Get a pic of the new holster when you get it.

The problem with a heli or plane is if it gets shot down someone could really get hurt. Also after a crash there usually a total lose.
The MMP is a perfect RX and should work great for this. What TX you using, 2.4? I personally would gear it down under 25mph and have drag brake set alittle high so it stops on it;s own. This would help with keeping it quiet along with plastic gears as metal are loud. Have you looked into some crawler tires? Not made for speed but you can get some stiff foam to help. They would help with rolling noise better grip threw the brush and over objects.
