Lee, I just want you to know that at least a few of us REALLY appreciate this philosophy. Before I discovered CTH I was buying a separate power train for each plane, and it was really expensive, and when the plane died, the expensive motor went into a box never to be used again.
It looks like there are plenty of guys who want to try different motors with different ESC and ESC settings, and I've got no problem with that. I could probably learn a lot from them, but keeping all my planes in the air at low cost so they can be hit and hit other planes is a much higher priority.
