This is the second flight of my 87" Sbach 300. The Scorpion Commander Series V 130A ESC that was in the Sbach for the first flight wasn't very compatible with the Q80-8M motor. I could never fix the motor stuttering problem after changing numerous ESC settings. So, I sold the Scorpion ESC and purchased a Castle Creations Phoenix ICE2 160A ESC. Below is the video of the flight...nothing inverted CG check, a few low passes and a couple of full throttle climbs. I really like the Q80-8M and it sounds awesome!
