EF-1 OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
I love the new EF-1 event, I have been following it from the beginning. I have a Pogo and hope to get something else soon. I have just a few thoughts from a non racer who does fly A LOT of electric and have been for about 10 years
1) Why is everyone using the BEC feature built into the speed control when Castle and everyone else says above 3 cells to use a seperate BEC or reciever battery pack.
2) Do you think anything will be done to improve the performance of the planes. We have 4 POGO's at the field and to be honest most of our sport ARF's fly a little faster. Maybe allow other props or more cells?
3) How are we going to control the cost of new batteries coming out. There are so many changes coming in LIPO assembly and manfacturing that todays batteries will be obsolete in a 1year or so. Just take a look at the new Thunder Power Packs, they are great, but who is the next one to up the performance??
4) When will there be a better supply of kits and ARF's out there. The POGO is OK but I would like some other choices. We keep seeing pictures of new planes but thing about how to get them
