So if a ninja makes a slight "woosh" sound when he falls to the ground.... what kind of sound would a steve weiss or a barry baker or a andrew swanson sound like when we hit the ground?

Would the ground tremble cause any type of phase shift in the upper atmosphere? Would the sound be heard around the world by animals with super hearing?

PS - i didnt know ninjas were allowed to say "awr sheet"

Sound of Falling man can be calculated:

Sound = (1/2 x mass of man squared x distance of fall ) / Body Fat Percentage

For some, that Body Fat Percentage might be MORE than their mass...

You wouldn't actually be falling... you would lose your ballance and just roll over to your heaviest part... sort of like a tire balancer

Hi Steve,

I'm having problem with my GTX. It seems that my acceleration speed is kind of slow and the top speed is also very slow. I've change new motor and tested with a pack of confirm good condition battery. Btw, I'm running silver can and sport tune motor in a mini.

Could it be the power capacitor problem?
Can I remove the power capacitor to test?
Will it cause any problem with no power capacitor installed?
How do I reset setting to factory?

P/S: I've tested the motor and battery on another mini and no problem whatsoever.

Merry Christmas and thanks.

Hey Killer,

I doubt it's a capacitor problem... but I would try swapping out another Novak cap with it to test instead of running it without a cap.

Resetting the ESC to factor defaults is easy... simply re-do the one-touch setup!

If none of this works I recommend sending it in to us for us to take a look at!
