I understand all that. The thing is, this guy guaranteed to replace the item and I did exactly what he said and he lied about it. In the end, I never would have gotten my money back if it wasn't...

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...

Wow, that is disappointing to hear that you have to charge these newer high "C" rating packs the night before you fly. Giving up the storage time for high "C" rating lipos is a huge sacrifice. ...

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.

I spoke to the tall guy with glasses. I think his name was Scott Bayde or something like that. He's the one that owns the F-15 that is always on display at the AMA show.

I fiberglassed the firewall to the fuse to keep it on. The only way to insure success for the wings is to remove the covering and add urethane glue to the wood at all the joints. For 100% success,...
