Yeah Not sure about the ESC. I am replacing with another one. I am running the SMC batteries now. Have no clue. I am putting my backup Scorpion 55AMP in it today. And going to try it again.

My scorpion ESCs have always ran hot even on 100% flat curve on both 3s and 4s setups. I thought my first one was a dud..i got a second one and it was still the same.

Could have been a bad motor though...

I've planted my e4 into the ground pretty hard twice now.

In both cases I had bent feathering spindle, bent main shaft and minor dings on the boom. Also of course broke the blades and my crappy servo arms.

2nd crash I managed to break the landing gear.

Givin the crashes though it has held up quite nicely, I am impressed at the minimal amount of damage.

To true. Even though I put the heli right back in the air, it did have a bent main shaft and spendle. That was all.

Love this little heli.

ESC

JC, how's it going? I have my beam ready but seems that when I setup the ESC abd try it on the heli I can't get it to spool up without boging down at arounr 1/3 stick. I removed the motor and it runs at all stick position but when i put it back in it does the same.
BTW, What blades do you run and do you have a Digital battery monitor on you battery to keep tabs on all cells?

Hey Luke.

Make sure your gear mesh is good.

What motor are you running?

I run the MS 325 Champion Line Blades.

I don't have a digital on the battery. But I do have one that will check after the flight.

Batteries that I am running are the SMC's

We are having a frozen finger fly tomorrow come up and see us.

We are also have a indoor fly at the hanger this sat come up and see us there too!!

See ya soon
