I have this beautiful model from http://www.hobby-lobby.com/ju52.htm (http://www.hobby-lobby.com/ju52.htm)
It's detail and appearance is amazing.
I haven't flown it yet because I find that the motors cut-out when I apply full throttle. I have to reduce the maximum throttle setting on my JR-642 down to 40% in order to run the motors without stopping, consequently I don't get the stated 7 minute run as HL states, using the supplied HL ni-mh 18AAA 7.2v 180mah battery. The supplied ESC is an FMA Mini-direct 20.

HL now includes a Jeti 6amp ESC and offer a Poly-Quest "Twenty" 300 mah 2 cell li-po and they state one can get 20 minute flights with this battery/ESC combination.

Does anyone have experience with my problem?

I would like to fly this model indoors in a 65x22 foot JR High gym.
Is this possible????

Thanks for your suggestions/replies.
