I like the 15-25s, lightweight but (IMO)heavy duty enough for the habu32.
If you fly off a paved surface you'll never have an issue.
I'm sure I hit a half-buried rock either right at touchdown or during the takeoff. I've over 40 takeoffs/and landings on our hardpack dirt field and this was the first time it gave me any trouble other than the typical loosening or slight bending of the strut wires that happens on all my retract equipped jets there.
I just ordered a set of Tams strut upgrades for the habu from Gary at EffluxRC.
They'll deal with the bumps alot better plus damp out the occasional bouncy landings.
I already had a spare set of 15-25s so I can replace the nose retract if it fails completely.
I also desoldered the fake deans off the series connector and replaced with real deans. A very quick run up (inside my car to keep the noise down!) showed 81A 2100W and no heating of the connectors or wires unlike last time.
Hope to get off work early enough to get a flight in tomorrow.
I'm going to get 7S 5000s to try as well, 5000s will hold higher volts way better than my 3200s.

Has no one else tried 7S with the stock motor/fan?
