I'm afraid to try a 4s what prop would work?
Youre having the same issue I had. DONT FLY that thing until you figure out what causing the peaks. You'll burn the motor up or the ESC. Heres what helped. The control srufaces (ie: ailerons, rudder, elevator) need to be cut off and hinged back on. the way they are attached from HK is too stiff. Upgrade from a 9 gram servo to a 12 gram servo. 9 gram servos struggle to move those huge ailerons and elevator when your in flight. Also, put a 60A ESC on that motor. 10x5 prop and I was good to go. I found this out after brning through my first motor. Fix that stuff and then check it again. And DEFINATELY DO NOT Go to a 4S. You'll burn that motor up real quick
