I'm still learning a lot about props so could you guys explain to me? Seems like a coarse pitch and big diameter for low amp esc is all! Thanks a lot I'd appreciate some explanation
I didn't even try the standard ESC. I put it aside and I'm using an Scorpion 15V 35A ESC with a built-in Switching BEC. I cycle three batteries on this model: two ThunderPower 3S 1350 mAh and one BPHobbies Cheetah 3S 3000 mAh.
Maybe an overkill but makes me feel better. However other People report fairing ok with the standard ESC and batt... but my question is how "long" will it last working OK.
