So, do you think that my battery is the problem or something else in the airplane? If you do think it's the battery, what would you suggest I get?
You most likely have a bad solder joint in your motor wires. Mine had a similar issue. Try doing the same thing while jiggling the wires around and see what happens. Take the prop of first (and then throw it away... That thing is insanely warped)

I agree also, that makes it unanimous.

Even so, I love my 540QQ! With a 7040 it screams skyward in vertical. With long arms and 150% throws it then gets completely twisted up in a tumble. Then into a violent blender that ends in a flat spin so tight and fast that it doesn't loose altitude. I think I could even make it climb with some practice! Then is slows to walking speed for landing.

A guy walking out to the field during this show said, "Well, I'm impressed". And then, when he saw the plane, "That's it?? I thought it was a much bigger plane!"

This thing is a blast! And, there's not that much money to loose if you mess up.

True, they fly great once you get everything sorted out. I just get tired of fixing things before I fly them. I got the differential on my dialed in, it rolls like lightning!

I know it is luck of the draw, and that's your point. Too many people have to fix things before the first flight. But for me, I just put on a good prop and long arms, neither of which were required, but they both are a good upgrades.

r not.



E,

Just heading out the door with my EQQ & 3SB3D combo.
Spring like day around here.

To me, the EQQ is an awesome combo of size and function.
Love the power!
Love the insane aerobatics!
She flies big yet small.

I love the AS3X system in my Beast.
Happy that my EQQ doesn't have it.

Yeah... I think I am too. I think it's big enough to not need it. I have flow it in winds strong enough to make my eyes water behind glasses. It wasn't particularly fun, but easily doable.

But, still... I'd be curious. Anyone know of a BB MG 3.5g servo that would hold up to AS3X duty? I been lookin'!
