Actually now I think of it the PLD 'End to End Diagnostic Tool' - EEDT *abreviation is a bit lame...use COOL for now - which would allow you to diagnose issues starting from the Cell and then going all the way up to the prop would be great.

I'd love to pull out one kit (whether it be a little satchel of goodies) that allow you to setup your planes electrical system with a minium of fuss.

I know there are different products that handle each of the bits, but for me the important bits are:

1 - Is the prop/motor combo right for the job (a combined RPM/Watt draw meter?)
2 - Is the speedie right for the job (can we see if the speedie is holding back i.e. rated @ 20 amps but only delivering 16amps?)
3 - Is the battery delivering the AMPs required - steadily and consistently - to manage item 1 and if so or not is there an IR or other issue?

Call me lazy - but I would rather be building or flying than pulling electronics out and hooking up to numerous testing items.
