Absolutely right!!!

This is why I started the post. I've been flying electrics for 6+ years. I don't see how that 16x16 apc gas prop can spin a 12S Axi 5330/18 and get that speed. My experience with Axi is if the...

Hold on here.

Let's not start confusing people here. If you use the same prop, increasing the number of cells will also increase the amp draw. An 11S on a 16x16 prop will draw more amps than a 10S on a 16x16...

90% efficiency? That's pretty unreal. I've had a few AXI motors and none of them have really impressed me all that much. Maybe it's the elevation as I'm just slightly above sea level. But even...

Exceed motors

Maybe you're right about the Exceed motors not lasting as long. I don't know. I have 4 Exceed Power 160 motors and only 1 E-flite 160 motor. That's because the E-flite motor is 2.5x the cost of...

I understand some cells can go bad, but all 3 that he has from XPS are doing the same thing. I'm a true believer of XPS, so I don't understand why it's happening to all 3 of his lipos.
