    Power Pack suggestion

    Hi Flite Test, I think that for your Power Packs, it would be really nice if you could sell the individual parts from the power packs in addition to selling the complete power pack. For example, if I already have an esc and servos and all I need is a motor, I would like the option of being able...

The next thing I noticed was all 4 of my ECS were getting burning...
