Man Kerwin your plane passed a nasty disease on to mine. I don't know what to think. Maybe it's an Edge thing. Anyways I went to sneak another quick flight on my edge on my way to work and had a small mishap. I did a really sweet KE spin and when I flattened her out and rolled out I noticed I didn't have power so ended up deadsticking in the thick grass. Of course it wasn't the nicest landing but luckily no damage. When I started messing with it again I couldn't get more than maybe 1/8th throttle worth of power out of it. So I taxied it around for a min thinking... there goes another esc. Well that went on for about 10-15 sec and suddenly I hear what sounds like a bad shift into 2nd and wham I have full power again. Call me crazy but I finished out the pack and did some of the best hovering I have ever done on that plane

DOG are you suggesting that I shouldn't be pulling 45 amps out of a cheap 40 amp esc?

ESC's come "gender specific"? That could explain why some of them Squeal when you first throttle them up.

This has went south very quickly.

Now I had changed the prop on my Hacker A 30/28 from an APC 12/6 to an APC 11/5.5, but she continued to squeal at WOT. I reduced my endpoint on my throttle to a point where the LED on the ESC went out. 140 to 125. in the proccess of doing this I over heated the motor just to the point where I could smell the windings. I don't know if I hurt the motor any but every since she hasn't squealed on me and I've even adjusted my EPA back to 140.
I ordered the Omega 72 or rather my brother did for helping him.
I'm thinking of doing a motor change tonight even though the Hacker is now doing FINE.
No if only the Omega does FINE.
BTW does anyone know FINE. I think I met FINE and maybe even done FINE.
OK FINE

I think you should run the Hacker as long as it is not squealing on you...run it until it runs no more...that should be fine...then you can use the Omega...and that will be fine as well.
