1S, 17.5t no wonder one of your early comments was 1/12th is boring on 1S. Last season (winter) I ran 10.5t, 1S on a regular turbo'd esc and as quick as it was it always felt flat unlike the 4 cell guys and I was throttle jamming like mad trying to keep up. Speedo firmware's have moved on since so i will have to see what it's like this year.
