AS3X doesn't like out of balance props, especially on 3S power!

3S is a blast on the Sbach, guess I just got lucky...
Uses 3S TP250s (until the arrival of your Babbelbatts) 2300/5043 and is a lunatic!! It wont glide but who cares, I'll put a 2S 180 in to thermal it

The Beast 3D on the otherhand, well that run up nicely on a storage charged TP250 but when I took it to the local field with a full pack it seemed to hit OCP above 50% throttle (motor shutdown and flashing Rx until it reset). I swapped the motor back to OE and found a bunch of bad connections between ESC & motor. I've swapped back to 2300/5043 and fixed these then run pretty much a full pack through it static testing at 100% bursts, all seems good now.

I'm off back to the field now before work to test it for real. Might even take my Keyfob Camera to see if I can get some decent video, though last time I did that I got carried away and mashed up my Extra showing off. Maybe just some gentle circuits this time until I'm used to being on film
