Thanks for the note. That has been my experience with the E-Flite electric retracts also which is why this is so puzzling. My bench test setup uses an older Futaba 5UAP TX and Hitec 5 channel RX with an old Castle Pixie 7 ESC that I use for power off a 2S lipo. Have been wondering that maybe the BEC in the ESC just can not supply enough umph. When I get the retracts back I will see if I can scrounge up a 4 cell nicad pack and charge it up and try that. Don't have many of those left around anymore!!
