I've grounded it since last summer for a variety of reasons, one of them the Spektrum issues I've had, the other when I caught the ESC on fire in midair . So much for trying to only run just barely big enough ESC needed to keep it as light as possible, then I upgraded to a higher C pack setup without re-sizing to a larger ESC "Poof" (same capacity and cell count, but I really should have realized that there would be more W available).
