I'll see if I can get the Castle data log from Rob but he said it pulls right around 135 Amps (versus the standard 114 -116 Amps) and produces about 6,200 Watts. Rob gets 5 1/2 to 6 minute flights and ends up using about 4,600 - 4,900 of his 6,600 mAh packs...

Race fan aside Rob Lynch is one of smoothest pilots youll ever see fly. his smooth stick handling will get him extra mph everytime.

Pablo... You could just save a proportional radio channel and have an "on" and "off" switch for throttle ;-)

You're no slouch on the sticks either buddy, you just have a heavy foot... errrr, finger!

Thanks for the video, if he loses sight of it, look for it about a 3 mile radius.
