I hope it did not cut the nerve.
Stupidity plus an unsafe control system.

I had my new, just finished TBS quad hooked up to my laptop to make some adjustments and normally this is not an issue because there is a failsafe built into the software which disables the outputs to the ESC's.
...but...
This time when the controller powered up I got a pop up telling me there was new firmware and would I like to upgrade? I said yes and got a screen which listed the changes and, again asked if I would like to proceed?

I clicked yes and instantly all four motors spooled up for a couple seconds and I put my hand up to block as it went by my head. Pretty lucky I got away with 5 stitches in one finger. Finger tip is still a bit numb but it is coming back. Broke two props and crushed a nice antenna when it hit the floor.

Interesting thing is I posted on two different Naza threads a warning and got a dozen emails from others who have had this happen (one with many more stitches). I was dumb because I should have had the props off as the second failsafe as I usually do.

So again, be careful out there fellow mobmates , these dogs can bite!

Heres the results of my 180A battery test, as soon as I break in the Glacier I'll add it to the list. I was pretty surprised by the performance of the Haiyin. SupaTim identified that as one of the batteries with "legs" during his field testing. Too bad I didn't have a Revolectrix for him to try.

My middle finger tip is still numb and tingly from the exact injury Mark. It was the middle of winter, fingers where ice cold, and I was trying to start a new 4 stroke satio and it backfired. Finger slid right up the un-sanded razor sharp APC prop.. Finga tip-a-flappin in da breeze.

Everything fresh. The 60" extra so far is my biggest plane.

Anyone interested in a seldom flown EG 57" MX2 electric?

Its got an Infinite motor that I usually flew this with a 6s pack with a 14" prop
or as its setup now for a 5s 3800 pack (new/unused) and a 15" prop
Electrifly 80amp speedo
nothing fancy on the servo's
All setup. Just add your receiver.

Some have seen this fly last year. Crazy power!

SOLD. Thanks Henry, and to the guys who pointed it out to him!! I owe you guys a cold one!

Are those Haiyin packs the 20-30C packs? I didn't think they made 25c.
I have a few 3c 3300mah packs I haven't used. Using the Gens Ace 25c 4000mah packs in my Extra. Been wanting to get a few Haiyins to try out but those Revolectrix look badass.

Yeah, they make 20's, 25's, 30's, 35's and a special upgrade 40. Pretty strange but from what I am seeing I think it's because they're the real deal.

Revolectrix suprised me, now I feel pretty dumb that I bought some of the TP's when I could have bought the Revo's for half the price.

Do you really notice a lot more punch throughout with the higher C packs?

I just realized how to get my Hyperion charger to charge at a higher C than 2

Don't feel dumb when those TP packs last for way more cycles...

Those numbers are interesting Joe. The 25C GensAce beat the GensAce 60C and they had the largest voltage recovery at rest.

How many cycles were these packs broken in for?
