I don't know why I didn't think about doing it that way.

I got lost in there somewhere... Setting fixed end points is done in the ESC or the radio?

Both, as you must set the ESC to fixed end points as opposed to autocalibrate, and then set the endpoints using the transmitter and the ESC....

Got another 6 flight in on my w/b/y extra & I'm still loving it
I think I've got a good combo now with my new 57" extra is now my other go to plane with my 51" slick.
Each ones does things slightly differently, the slick tumble better & is so violent yet the extra draw very nice clean line. I do agree I can hover my slick much better & I like the color scheme a little bit more but I can wait to try some bigger props.
What size of 4S packs other then 4000 mAh have you guys had success with ?

Gens Ace 4s-3800.
In cold weather, I used to fly my Y-W-B with Hacker A30-12XL 710kv with Xoar 15x8. Very light, motor came down warm.
Then A40-10s, A40-12S, A40-10L, 4315, ... 1500w on 6s.

First time on the Xoar 15x8, vs the normal 15x7 today.

Motrolfly 3625-709Kv, ICE 100 Lite, Zippy 4S 4000 20C.

Definitely faster and has sustained vertical capability. Close up I prefer the Xoar 15x7 pjn.

My opening rollers were terrible trying to catch up to that Bigfoot that took off and flew over us!

After I saw the vid, I felt kinda bad for the SC... Did that for three flights....

At one point I felt like you were going to rip it apart! I'd go through the motorbox with some glue if I were you!

I do pull test the motor from all angles frequently, see if any new movement.
