Presumably something akin to this

Edit: Though OP being on a mainland China team is interesting, wonder if there’s something going on there.

Technically this should be legal to use since they shipped to you like this… Anyone have ideas on how to use Falcon outrunners?

Fact: Like the shell of a cashew nut, which has a lining that is filled with a toxic fluid called urushiol, the shell of a Falcon is also non-edible.

I assumed they worked more like hermit crab shells and these four were all just caught out without large enough ones around.

What a coincidence. We just got our Falcon 500 order in and ALOT of parts seem to be missing…
