Do you know how many mAh your charger is putting back in to the battery when you charge it again?

I build by leaving the paper on. The strength you gain is the real advantage here. A good quality foam board will help with the paper peeling off quickly.

Have you used the Kingtech Factory pack?
Have you used NoBS batteries?

I had the same question last year with a hull a bit smaller. I agree with the above, using a drum servo over the arm servo. You will get better strength performance not speed, from a drum servo. This...
