it's a 400 outrunner an when it does spin up it delivers between 17 an 21 oz's of static thrust but if you shut it down where the prop isn't spinning then it's a 50/50 chance of it spinning up.
I removed the prop an prop assembly an the motor spins up every time.
I guess it goes to show you that these combo packages are kinda bs
I would of bought this little cub anyways even if it didn't come with a brushless bec ause I've been lookiong for a little cub with a 40" wing span or so. I have a little park right behind the apt that I'm hoping to fly in as soon as I get her flying
Kerwin, how are you doing a static test anyway? I am serious and just curious.

Now that that is out of the way. I don't know what your setup is. Some ESCs will not start if they think something is blocking the prop. That may be a problem, especially if the prop is a little too large. Your ESC may be programmable. If it is, you may need to change it for a soft startup. This can let the motor spin up the prop a little easier. There may also be a timing adjustment. You can try changing the timing settings to see if it responds better. The assumption is the battery is properly charged.

Hope that helps. I can look up the ESC if you tell me what it is.

Kerwin,

You probably have an iffy ESC. I had the same sutuation and replacing the ESC corrected it. What amperage is that ESC?

Wow ! , , , just Wow !!! Im on the other end of the scale - 6 feet tall and only 140 pounds ! The wind from a decent 4 stroke could blow me over ! Let me tell you its not all fun and games being a walking toothpick - People always asking "are you sick ??? Is there something wrong with you???" Or my favorite "dont ya eat enough???" People say the darndest things to skinny people that they would never say to someone who is heavy . One things for sure , If your TOO fat , skinny , old , ugly , or just plain different , people think its their duty to point out how different you are !

Gosh, I wish I had that problem. You can probably eat Oatmeal Rasin cookies all the time and not gain weight. I would not mind trying it for a while.

My Friend being the way I am I can eat everything I want , That is one definate plus about being too skinny . one of my buddys had to have the stomach operation where they make the actual stomach smaller ; he went from 420 pounds down to 250 pounds and may actually live beyond his 50s now . Sad to see the battles people have with their weight and health - it seems if its fun , or tastes good , its bad for ya . I truly wish the best of luck to anyone fighting the weight battle

Init, I feel ya bro, Im 5'8 140 soakin wet. I eat all the time and have been know to consume mass quantities of beverages from time to time, Ok every day, but never gain any weight. I have tried but its to no avail. Been the same weight since freshman year of HSchool. And you are right, people dont think before they speak sometimes. "We need to fatten you up" "you sick?" "No wonder youre cold, you have no fat on ya" Skinny, Scrawny, Little, Small, "Look at the size of you, no wonder" Yea it all gets old.
But anyways, Ho-down a comin huh? I just may have to get a piece of the action when the weather breaks also. Ive been itchin to get in but I was kind of waiting to see some of y'alls cards first. But......it appears that none of you have much of a hand to play, so, Im gonna have to show you how to roll fixxin style. .
