that's weird, I don't remember that. I flew it pretty hard in my f86 for lots of flights, some in 85-95deg heat.

I do tend to fly with a lot of full throttle. It may also be that the way these new batteries hold their voltage stresses the motors past their ability to shed heat and they self destruct. Flying at sea level may also add a bit more load.

It would be good to see a motor performance graph of output power against input power, I would guess that the efficiency curve drops off pretty sharply at high power and that I was operating these motors at or past their drop off point. So my own fault really.

If you are getting a good run from the same motors / cell combo then good luck to you, I tried 3 times and failed so it was time for me to try something else.
