"no-load current" -- what does it mean?
<newbie alert on>
If my soarer is soaring with the motor stopped and the prop folded, if the "no-load current" still flowing? Or does it mean that the motor draws x amps when it's running full-speed and spinning with nothing attached to the prop shaft?
This electric stuff just gets curiouser and curiouser!

The stopped motor should not draw current. The speed control and servos will continue to draw current however, if the receiver is on.
If the motor were to run without a prop, that amount of current will be considerd - no load current.

I have to say, that since I started lurking here, my attitude about fellow modelers has improved. Most every post I've seen on these forums has been informative and non-judgmental.
For that also, thanks!
