Today and yesterday a had a strange problem with my trex. The power is not up to what is used to be.

I use about 80% on idle1

When I land after 2-3 min flight it is almost impossible to spin up the rotor again. It takes maby 20 sec to get a full speed. After that flight is 'normal' for another 5-6 minutes.

Could it be the regulator?

All is stock and I'm using two Align Power 6S2P 4200mah / 16C Li-Poly's.

Cold be the weather!!! lipos don't seem to like the cooler weather.

Try warming your lipos prior to flight and see if that makes a difference.

Nas,

Nah, Im flying all winter in sweden.

Today we had -0.5C when I took off, battery peaked at 16C after 5 min flight.

Granted, less power then during summer, but not much less.

I was flying today my Trex 600 at -2 deg C. The temp. of the battery (Flight Power Evo 20 4900 mAh) after the flight was about 40 deg C. Good power trought out the whole 8 min flight.

Managed 2 flights today.

When NOT using udle-up all the time, performance is better. I just switch it on for loops and rolls. Performance degrades quick else.
