Running one of these on a Wemotec 6000KV 55mm, 3S setup. Works perfectly. In fact bought two as my Hobbywings gave up on me and these has worked well.

Dynamic balanced units have an approximately 3 business day lead time (as noted on the website) and your order was sent on the 4th business day and I did upgrade you to Priority Mail instead of first class postage.

Don,

Your pics show you using bullet plugs to connect to your ESC and motor, but your bag says we have to solder the wires to the motor lines... What is the correct answer?

Solder direct and do not use bullets is the recommendation.

Left Roll

For some odd reason I am getting a left roll tendency during launch. How Can I fix that I have been hitting the ground a lot... Does anyone have an extra AMX body? I just need the front cone. Cheers

Lots of torque and small wing area on the AMX. I found on stock power I had no roll problem. With a Wemo mini-fan and Don's motor, lots of torque and left roll.
I gave up hand launch and went to a bungee launch.
