The only thing I can think of is that I hit captain rescue button instead of throttle hold when it hit the ground and stopped the motor dead while it was still powered. I would of thought the ESC would burn up before the motor.

Or my other theory is that this stupid little heli is possessed. I cheaped out and ordered the Align 460MX dominator motor. It was hard to pass up at $60 vs. $110 for the KDE. No one seems to have the Scorpion in stock.

Still cheaping out? Thought you would have gone big or stayed home.

Yup...I'm hoping it keeps him from remembering where the motor came from.

I don't know what happened but if the dominator motor is the same one I have it is a rocket. I am going to have to tune the pitch to to 8 deg or something to keep it from blasting out of sight when I bump the throttle. Normally I hit 3/4 throttle on flips but that sends the 450 out of sight before I know it.

Just flew the creeper at work.

Took some decent footage in full creeper mode. Even with the breeze it wasn't too bad.

This just gets stranger. I just downloaded the log file out of the Castle from the X3. No voltage or current spike is shown at all from when the heli hit the dirt or prior. Maybe the motor was defective. I guess I'm going to keep the Ice Lite 50 on it instead of the Talon 35.

Steve have a great vacation. I hope you and your wife have a great time.

I'm already pissed at this Align motor. They have bastard size bullets on the motor but don't supply the female side for the ESC.

Yep, the new motor works great as does the new Spirit FBL. Even with my limited skills I can feel how nice the tail responds. Just have to figure out how to make CR work on it, which I think I figured out. I have to replace my momentary switch on the radio as it fell of my bench and trashed the switch.

240 mph on the water is absolutely insane.

So far so good. I replaced the broken switch in Tx and I figured out how to make the rescue feature in the Spirit FBL function but I haven't tested it yet.
