Yeah I've messed around with enough Phantoms to agree with most of that. For me, the Phantom just didn't make sense because I don't need another radio. I already have two really nice radios and...

I still like mine and fly it whenever I feel like it. It's so easy, even beginners can fly it.

If Spek thought they could add a capacitor and it would make any difference they would have. They are ridiculously cheap, and simple to add.

If you haven't deliberately been ensuring that you have a good power supply, then yes, you've been lucky. The problem has mostly been fixed in the Bind and Fly and RTF stuff too.

I remember flying planes in the late 70s - I never flew them, I was too young, but all I can remember is we would be lucky if we got the plane up in the air before dark :)

We're just trying to help you prevent it happening again. When I crash a plane and it's my fault, I'm not anywhere near as angry as when I crash because something failed.

No, like I said before, it does explain that. Servos can go wacky and receivers can do random things when you have a wonky power supply. If you are using the built-in BEC on that ESC then it could...

Kyle, do you really think a Schottky diode would work? Would it switch fast enough, or would it need a capacitor? And, if it needs a capacitor, wouldn't it be simpler to just put the cap across the...

You were trying to force it into the "safe circle" and it refused to go? That's what it's supposed to do, but it shouldn't cause any bad behavior.

I think it's cheating... these planes are all the same, we know their speed. They are easy to build too. I'll see if I can get some video next time I fly it. Gotta wait for the snow to melt first!

That is what I was using... but they are correct. I forgot that the phases are connected to each other. So what they are saying is correct, the current does reverse in the windings.
