Use a light weight body. Shorten the wires. That might help a little.

this is one of the most useful posts ever to be made on rctech. awesome job gathering that information, adam. keep a link to this post handy. we will be seeing repeated requests over the next months asking for this particular entry.

this info should be posted to the pitspace or whatever we will be using as a central infosource.

again, great job.

This is like Weight Watchers. Everyone is so worried about shedding a gram or two. We soon need to have celebrity R/C Car weight loss programs. Now we just need two professional R/C weight loss trainers and where in business.
