And before anybody asks... "Why does it look like it has a hole burned in it?" It does. Testing out a 5 cell pack on the Mega 4 turn and 6x4 prop. Anyone with moto calc can tell you that that is way too much current for the 25A speedo that I had in there. It should have hit the current limit and shut down or the thermal protection should have kicked in but it didn't and the white smoke pouring out the back in high speed flight was pretty cool although disheartening. Even the chips tried to eject but got caught up in the foam and melted into it. I left them in there to add character. Oh well, spit happens.
