BTW I also have the same one you got from valuehobby but I got it from HC. It has a flat spot in the throttle between about 40-45 percent, but otherwise works OK. Even though valuehobby didn't mftr it they should reimburse you then they should themselves get reimbursed from the mftr.
I've seen lots
of posts with excessive heat complaints for the 1800kv Typhoon version. Yours is the first for 1600kv. I plan to run 12T pinion and 30C batteries from the start as I don't care about 3D performance. I really hope I won't have to spend megabucks to get a reliable motor.....
