Default RE: Outrunner Problems

Glad to hear you found the problem! We have the same problem with LHS's here.
We have two great hobby shops with great prices and huge inventories.
But, the people who work there don't understand their products even care about being helpful.
Their answer to a problem is always "Call the manufacturer"
If you start asking specific questions about motors, batteries or speed controls, they pick up the box and try to find the answer.
They have no clue how to match components for electric planes or helis'.
I get so disgusted with them! I have told them that they are making customers throw money away because they are selling there products on "I guess it will work"
If they don't know what a customer needs, then THEY should call the manufacturer and find out.
The reasons I have fried motors, speed controls and batteries were all preventable, if someone had pointed me in the right direction.
It was a very expensive way to learn. But, at least I can now help other modelers that are facing the same dilemas that I have been through.
