    Gremlin Idea, would like suggestions.

    If I did this right, there should be two pictures somewhere on this post. I would really like a miniquad that I could just (literally) throw into a car and fly, and that was reliable. I have access to a PCNC Milling Machine, and some common plastic used for it, i found out, is actually somewhat...

    Motor Stutter

    I'm running an emax rs2205 2600kv motor with a 40a ESC on a 3S lipo and 5x4 props, and I'm getting issues with the motor stuttering on low throttle. I tried a 12a and an 18a ESC and had the same issue. Is my battery too low voltage or is my ESC too low amperage for the rs2205?
