Yeah I'm hoping when my CC arrives, which got pushed back again...
, I'll get a 2300kv in it. Then I'll take it out and put it in the B3D to test on 3S. I've got a nice 5043 all balanced and ready to go. I also made myself a custom 5530 by trimming down a 6030. I sanded the blades to match the tip shape of a 5030. Should be a great prop on the beast considering how much ground clearance it has especially with those big ol' 1.25s on it.
*edit* I wonder what could be causing my motor to get so hot. bad winding? inadequate airflow? I wonder if I made a cooling intake area under the motor to match the gap over it would help.
