WOW....that is crazy low Atti number.

It must come back to level very slow and lazy?? I usually keep mine around 100 because for video I want it smooth and slow. But with Z15 I guess it doesn't matter as much now.

I don't even adjust the gains on the WKM anymore.

@ Spyde. Where can I get those isolation dampeners you used between each carbon plate?

Thanks

I have no light on my M1 ESC. I'm unsure if it's wise to use it. Have not got any answer on what to do!

CASCARLOS,

Have you tried to spool up the motors without props on? How does it react? I think the LED is independent of the esc. I remember one other own had this problem. I am not sure it he solved his issue as well. You might run a search of this thread.

Anyone flying this Maxamps batteries? Lifetime warranty sounds nice, since my Zippys died after a year, but intense use.
And 11000mah pack is 400g lighter than 2x Zippy 5800 pack.
