I'm not knocking on any brand. The signal hopping is what sold me. I fly out of my backyard on a 40acre lot. Across the street is a housing subdivision where there are 5+ 2.4ghz access points I can pick up on my Iphone. And that's not including any bluetooth, 2.4ghz phones, wireless mouse and gadgets that may be within range. I'll find out if it works for my application.
There are so many variables on my setup that could go wrong. I'm not blaming Spektrum. It's a learning process. Sometimes you can get away running cheap, and sometimes you pay for it.
On my last lock out, I was running the AR6200, Reaper 85amp ESC, GR45, 4S 20C 2200. Seriously, what was I thinking. I was running 4S 20C 2200mah battery on a 60+ amp draw motor. Voltage sag? Now I make sure my planes gets a CC BEC 10amp and enough juice to feed it.
Now that capacity trick is new. Thanks.
