Dale,

That is the same motor that I have in my Conquest. On a 6s system with a APC 13x10 it is turning 10,778 on the ground at nearly 1,600 watts. I am ok with the speed of my C4e as it feels...

Will,

I also have a photo where one of my flying buddies put a watermelon where the fuse used to be. We have to find humor in tragedy! Yes, a 2.4 system in 1987 would have saved that plane.
