fascinating project, and I have a SkyFun jet I'd like to speed up somewhat also for the white knuckle FPV experience. Will do some laminate over the plane to make it tougher, though.

I think only ET 150a elogger will do. But im not planning on using a current sensor. Just a voltage sensor, that will do.

He is the same motor pulling 140amps.
