Flew nicely with a 3s but as I was connecting the battery for the second flight I noticed the JST-to-Deans connector warming up. It was shorting due to the melted plastic/rubber that kept the red + black wires apart. I immediately yanked it out.

I tried the stock 2s battery, but there wasn't enough power with the new prop I was using (3 blade 8x6).

This plane is a sweet flyer - but far too underpowered at 2s. I'm trying to use up my GWS props before replacing the motor and probably should upgrade the ESC to 30A.
