Looks like its over 130 amps static .......................... still somewhat "hot" for a full throttle flier. You might have some good flights in cooler weather, but this setup IMHO is borderline.

If you have an extra heatsink added, a scoop for directing the air down the motors throat, and keep the first flight very easy (you only need about 6-7 seconds WOT - straight and level for us to get a better idea of where this will unload down to and how the motor will be handling those 7 cells).

Hey guys, I'm selling a CC ICE 100 over in the classifieds.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1795967

It's well used but cheap!

I'm wanting to get rid of it as I got a new one and am no longer planning to use this one for my D40 build.

Id love to sell it to a slacker rather than someone else random (I'll go $55 shipped conus for you guys...)

Let me know if any of you need it.

Sam
