Can we find out what kind of current your motor is capable of pulling safely, without overheating? Also, do you primarily use the motor to cruise slowly around while you're hunting thermals? Or do you use the motor for climbing hard up to height, then shut it off and glide for long times? Basically, we need to know how you use the motor, and for what.
