Never had enough Power . . . .

Here are the two takeoff runs where my airliner's EDFs didn't really seem to spool up enough.

Yeah, I can see what you were saying big difference in thrust.

hang on, are you saying you have been using the same batteries for 2 years?? first of all. nice work! amazing they are still working from my experience ;)

2nd are you sure its the batteries? if everything in that plane is over 2 years old, you might consider checkin the rest of the electrics before cashing in for new lipo's..

just a thought :)

very beautiful planes btw!

Chambo one thing to remember Sir is these EDFs and ESCs have had VERY little use but the batteries are indeed old, but it was also cold at the flight field that day and I maidened the BAC-111 and DC-9-51 on Hot summer days which may also have had a factor in battery performance, I have ordered new batts for the next round.

Fair enough :) hope it solves the problem, and may your next flights be long and safe ;)

Trust me Chambo I'm checking everything on these planes for faults.
