What is the setup?
What kind of efficiency are you getting?

I don't know how to answer the efficiency question. The motor comes down fairly warm, but not unbearably hot after a ~6min 3D style flight. I don't think I'm pushing it too hard.

I'm running the APC 13x6.5E on 4s.

Yes. But keep in mind I fly it 3D style, so its not at 600W full time. In fact, very seldom.

Thanks dude. I posted that here to link the pic to another site that I couldn't post pics on - wanted to make sure I had the cartridge properly ID'ed before taking a wrench to it.

Do companies make after market filters for this cartidge-type, or do I have to go OEM? The Wix website doesn't show a compatible filter for this engine on their lookup function...
