This one is much more maneuverable than that second one my son in law toasted. And I don't know why lol. You can see in the vid how fast she snaps around. Including dives. I only put a mild KM underneath on this one.

Also... motor was hot. Esc was hot ( 30amp ). Battery was hot and almost sucked dry.

Anyways... Here is the vid.

AWESOME !!! Looks like a great flyer ! On my fast ones , I take off and land on high rates ( for control ) , but go to low rates with some expo for the high speed screaming around - then they fly as if they're on rails .
When you check your motor and ESC , look for color change in the wires ( inside the motor ) and smell them . If they get dark and smell like they're burning , then ... you get the picture .
What was the c rating of the battery ?
