Fixed my "nip and tuck" by adding a part of what I took out back to the plane. Now the diameter is correct. I am going to fly it on 3S to see if there is a difference then going to go 4S on the W5400 motor. I have some 4S1800 lipos on the way and the AMX body is big enough so why not eh?

Don, what about 5s on the 4800 ? Dual Rhino 40C 1050mah 2s + 3s...

I wanted to try it on the Exceed 5000kv but I think maybe just too much for a 400watt rated motor (that admittedly peaks 530watts on 4s). So 640's on 5s -- for the watts?

Very tempted to try it -- Get this, the combined lipo weight is 175grams + about 12grams for parallel plug = 187g which is identical weight as the 4s 1600 30C.

What will melt down first, the motor or the WEMO? I lean towards WEMO but i'm beginning not to underestimate its awesome durability so far for just a little plastic fan. These WEMO Micros are just a great bang for buck. So what happens during catastrophic brushless motor failure? Well I've seen one before (think twin brushless Align 430L outrunners in a Traxxas Villain r/c boat) and it just smokes alot, turns all black inside, and stops working of course -- but nothing like an ESC melting down. Although at that heat it might well MELT plastic WEMO mount once the fan cuts and air flow stops.

Looks like the rest of the airframes from BH will be here Friday. I also got my 4S1550 rhino lipo in the mail. That is going to go into the AMX. I also need to swap the 30 amp ESC for a 40.

UPS says tomorrow :-) The bad news is I am sold out on Wemo fans, but the new shipment is due anyday now. I plan on testing the W5400 on 4S in the AMX and will post some numbers.
