It's a bit big at 30A - the EP100 works best with the lightest weight components. Many use a Castle Phoenix 10A or a 25A. You want a target weight of ~210-220g for the plastic EP100, ~220-240 for the Pro - thats' hard to reach.

Please keep questions out of this FAQ thread - it is only for posting information.

Anyone know why my Pixy Zap wobbles. I'm going to check if my main blades are balanced but besides that, is there any other reason anyone knows of?
