So that could be something to let new guys consider if they don't want to shell out the C-note for the 25.5 motor.

How is or has this worked out for you?
Is the 13.5/1cell non boosted still a little faster, or very close? Do you limit FDR at all?

I'm afraid I'm unsubscribing too. I'm not sure how a problem like this has been allowed to persist, month after month, without someone dedicating themselves (or the necessary resources) to working out a proper solution. Treat it like one's favorite RC car that has a drivetrain or suspension issue and break out the necessary tools and FIX IT already.

I have reset my board settings so the latest post is page one instead of on the last page and it seems to work for me. Try that.

I'm surprised the dude in this photo doesn't have a bigger grin on his face. Probably because he had to convince his family how dissapointing it was having to put his arm around those two "homely" looking young women while being forced to let them hold on to his trophy.
