I would assume there are crashes, and LiPo's don't take well to that.
Lipos dont take too well to being launched a couple of hundred of foot across the ground either. I tried that yesterday. The Flite Streak flew excellent. It needs the cg further forward than the instruction, plus the pushrod in the inside hole instead of the middle hole. And I wish it had about another inch of leadout sweep. Besides that its great. Now I apparently need a better battery hold down system. It turns like a combat plane, so its hitting some substantial g's. It ripped my 3/16 balsa box to shreds.
