Earlier in this thread I detailed my experience with the ET800... and some of the experimenting I did with it. After a lot of tinkering, I think I can sum it all up in one thought:
Simply remove the stock prop and substitute a GWS 5043 trimmed down to a 3" diameter (watch the balance). The extra pitch is just what it needs... and, in my experience, wont over-stress the ESC. Without this... it *is* a little underpowered. But with the prop change, it is an excellent little plane.
Everything else I did with it was either distraction or fun stuff.
