I know it wasn't flying style with mine. After the initial flights I was doing oval laps gently increasing throttle until I got a cutoff. I found that it usually happened around 70% on a fresh pack. I'm not completely convinced that is is OCP and not OTP. The motor windmills at idle and probably everything being so small I bet it cools fast while gliding down. The one cutoff I had was most certainly OTP as It was on landing I was at <10% throttle on a nice stabilized approach and it just cut two feet off the ground. I just flared and carrier landed it. ran over and touched the motor and it was hot to touch. This was all with a fresh balanced 5030 on a 2500kv motor. The motor only has about 20 flights on it to...
