No problems with a 14x7 pulling 33 amps, but now with a 15x7 my esc is cutting out again at 51 amps. I set the over amp sensitivity to insensitive but its still cutting out when i hit full throttle. Obviously something isnt right. Any ideas from the addicts or should i call castle?
My ICE 75 cuts out at 82A or so.
100+ flights, no problem.

There's some small thin collars in the hardware. They look like they go in the threaded pieces that connect to the ball links for the pull pull setup. Is that what they're for? What is their purpose? Don't see any mention in the manual or build video.

Should be.
I set at 105A, but as often it cuts out at 82A-85A (continuous), probably due to the current spikes that hit 105A.

You need more planes . I have a 72" SC, two 57" SC's, 55" SHP, three 47" SHP's, 55" Edge, 47" Edge and 40" Edge in my 3DHS fleet. It's actually kind of sickening lol.

If you mean the thin washers on the "EZ" connectors then yes, one goes on the "EZ" connector, then stick the threaded portion through the servo arm, and then the other washer, then the nut. I have found for some reason, that I usually am not able to use both due to the thickness of the servo control arms. Sometimes, I will use one, or none depending on the thickness of the servo arm. Be VERY careful when putting the CA glue on the nut after you have it adjusted for the proper movement, as it is very easy to glue the "EZ" connector to the servo arm.

Naw. These are long skinny sleeves. They look like they go in the threaded connectors that attach to the pull pull setup. Will take a picture and post

I suspect they are the crimping sleeves for the pull-pull setup. It is designed for the pull-pull cable to be routed through it, then looped a second time before crimping. Finish with a bead of CA (let it sit for awhile to dry).

My 57" expired today. Low pass at high speed, 1 second of distraction from a warbird landing.

Been hating my yellow 57" (red looks wayy better) but probably now I will miss it. It served about 150 flights with 5 different power systems (from 800w - 1500w, 4s, 5s, and 6s)

Had 6 great flights today though. Did several KE spins with the new Motrolfly 4315-500 on 6s with Xoar 16x8. The thing was screaming pretty good. Crazy power at 1500+ W but I never flew at WOT today.

Probably not ... Looking at the RED 57" SC or Orange 59" Slick.
