Dag,

I know we talked about extending the motor leads, specifically extending the 3 wires between the ESC and motor. Have you talked to Hacker about this? I ask because I've done this before, some 30" and I saw no ill effect but I noticed something in the Spin instructions, they seem to offer a way to extend the leads from the battery to the ESC (preferable I would think);

> Extending the battery cables. As a matter of principle only cables from the battery to the controller can be extended. If the extension is larger than 20 cm it is unavoidable to connect between the cables a low impedance electrolytic capacitor of a capacity 100-300 F. These capacitors must be inserted between every cable section longer than 25-30 cm.
