I was cracking up when my stock superCub was flying upside down about 10' from impending doom. It had rained like a mofo in Socal. Sure enough i splash landed right into a huge mud puddle. Not sure what was so funny.

Pretty much any 40amp will work? I see marine versions and all types of weird crap i dont understand
make sure it has a BEC (battery elimination circuit) and no you don't want a heli or marine ESC

SBEC is best 3amps is usually enough, 4 amps is better.

Operation final solution successful!!

Finally got her back guys.

After 7 days stuck in the trees out in the snow/rain/wind/zero to teens degree nights and 20 to 30 degree day temps, remarkably little damage from the whole ordeal. A few very minor dings/dents/scratches and prop is chewed up a little from thrashin' through the branches. But all electronics work fine, no damage to motor, GB or prop shaft; spins up fine. Empennage and LG untouched. All things considered, I am extremely lucky to have her back at all, let alone in such fine shape.

Need some advice on the LiPo though (Tenergy 3S 1350 mAh, fairly new). After a solid week outdoors in the cold, measured .430 V stone cold from the rescue. After 36 hours indoors has rebounded to 3.14 V...still waaaay below minimum voltage. Is this battery toast? Is it dangerous to even have around? Looks completely normal; not puffed or weird looking. I've read about jacking a LiPo up on a NiCad charger to where it will start accepting a normal charge but I aint doin nuthin till I get some informed feedback from smarter guys than me.

Whataya think?

What size prop would you guys recommend for this setup?

HK was back ordered for the Turnigy Plush. Any other brands in particular that you guys like?
