it's a 30-35amp motor run on a 13t pinion.
15c apex mk3's dont even cut it if youre pushing the trex hard.
20c's seem to work fine.
Obviously this is not the problem in this case as those values are only the extremes and this guy has not lifted off the ground yet.
But I agree, that motor requires a much better battery to perform well.
I'd say at least able to deliver 30A constant.
I guess by high motor speed you mean high timing. Don't use this. That motor is suited for mid-timing and this might be one of the reasons for exessive current draw in addition to the reasons mentioned. You should be able to hover/FF with that motor at an average of 8-9 A.
