I flew about 7 batteries on Saturday. The first battery is always the worst. It’s like the plane is broken or something. But then it (IE me) gets better.
I’m getting tired of the motor shaft overheating and melting the prop off. I lost 1 prop today. Maybe it was the inverted crash that loosened the prop but I think it was the heat. After flying a few batteries, the motor was “ouch, that’s pretty darn hot” hot.
Weirdly enough, I keep thinking about going brushless… overpowered brushless. It’s all those gas & glow jocks at the field. There I am just inching off the field and they’re pulling verticals right after take-off.
