I wondered about not clearing the logs until the ESC arms. The only risk I could think of with that is that it might take some time to clear? When I delete my Ice logs, it takes a few seconds, I believe. They may want to avoid that delay as you're getting ready to spool the motor.
I sure hope there is more log storage, 20KB of log memory is awfully inexpensive. I'll bet it could be bumped up to 64KB for under $20
Where did you find the details you posted on the logs, etc?
