I just hooked up my Wemo Evo with a 2w-25 and ran it. I got 60.8a and 1287w on a 6s with a storage charge. I only ran it for about 10 seconds and it has zero vibes. I'm glad I paid for balancing. The Castle Phoenix Edge 100a ESC says 147947 RPM. How accurate that is, I don't know... I need to make a real test stand before I run it full charge full blast. Hopefully I can go to a smaller ESC. The 100a is quite large, but then I may need it for balance...

When you're looking at the data log you need to hit the "edit" tab and enter the correct pole count of your motor in order for the rpm's to be accurate.

Just a note to anyone that has bought a bare airframe... I guess mine was on the shelf for a long time and the glue, looks like they used a CA, has became weak and brittle. I was putting the fuse back in the styrofoam shipping container and I heard a cracking sound. The nose broke apart from the rear section right along the inlet duct. It did make it very easy to install the ESC in the airpath and to open it up for airflow in the battery compartment. I will post some pics before I glue it back together

I love the paint job!!! Good luck on the maiden. I hope the CA they used at the factory is still holding up. Check to see if it is yellowed, it is breaking down. Thin CA dripped carefully in the joints works great.
