    RE: USA TEAM AT THE WORLDS SITE

    Thanks, Jeff, and everybody else for commenting on the site. I just wish I knew these guys well enough to be able to put names under every picture. I'm afraid there is just not enough hours in the day to try to figure it all out.

    Once again, I must tell you how much all the support is appreciated.

    RE: USA TEAM AT THE WORLDS SITE

    Looks like a smaller worlds as in earlier bulletins more pilots were coming. Usually there are around 100. Must be the bad economy and the crazy state the world is in lately. This time I will be there as a spectator and am looking forward to be there tomorrow thru Sunday!

    RE: USA TEAM AT THE WORLDS SITE

    That Aries fire was no doubt caused by an overheating ESC, a very familiar problem in F5B. I'm amazed at the number of electric setups that have only 80 Amp ESC and yet maximum power is typically close to 3000 watts. The ESC has to work harder at part than full throttle so in my book an 80 amp esc doesn't have enough head room.
    It happen after sound check before takeoff ...dont think you overheat a esc in that few seconds....when he should take off the prop just moved a bit and then the smoke and fire came... to bad ..long way from Norway to USA just to do a sound check!!!

    Thanks for the info. I still think 80 amp esc is too small but clearly not the problem there. Bad luck for sure.
