Some action photos from last Sunday's sunset-fly in Houtbay, Cape Town, South Africa.

I am also running the one Xtreme CX2 on 3S 800MaH Litestorm LiPos. This was the first time I got to fly it outside and even in a bit of a breeze the power and lift was awesome compared to the one I'm still flying with the 2S Xtreme LiPos.

Flight time on the 3S is almost 30 min - I have to stop after 10-15 min and let the motors cool down first as they get really really hot even with double heat syncs on them. So far the electronics and motors donít seem to be negatively impacted by the extra 4V.. but only time will tell if it will last....Continue Reading
