8 amps is a lot to pull from a 730 mah pack. That's 11C and the voltage drop will be substantial down to maybe 5 volts.

I thinks ots 8 amps its for the Thunder tiger super cub. I have my ESC set to cut at 5 volts becuase at 6 and 7 volts it cuts the motor. The cub has a 370 motor geared to 2.67:1 and usin i think a 6 or 7 inch prop i may be wrong
