(watts up meter)
241.7watts
11.94volts
20.03amps

This test was done for 20seconds at wot. The amps stayed above the 18amp the whole time. I guess the better battery can allow the motor to pull more poer than the esc can handle. I guess I have been very lucky .

All look pretty safe to me, but the real test is when flying and everything settles in.

As far as spoilers, flaps and all that. In stock to slightly modified set ups, I don't see any need for them. True the plane coasts forever trying to land, but you just have to get her slow before final. I haven't had any issues with stalls unless I just make a bad approach. As far as I'm concerned, this is one of the best flying planes in it's class. 19 flights so far, all absolutely 100% perfect. She's a thrill!!!!

Was that on a full charge for each battery? I got alot more power than you 100% stock and you see what I got with the 1350s. Wonder why I am putting out so much more power


EDIT: forgot to ask what does the map stand for?
