Both were easy, quick fixes. Certainly not the motor's fault.

Anyone ever had any problems with RCexL? Wondering if the rate of failures is growing or just whining.
DLE ignition, I have lost 3, one on a 55, 2 on 30s all running regulated lipos

That being said. I have had more problems with electronic kill switches than anything.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

42%. Led would flicker while flying by. Engine a strange high rpm miss like too much timing

Edit after being replaced several times. ( life time warranty). I just trashed them all 4
Now I have a mix of smart fly and Powerbox

I run a couple brands, but need to run regulator for my ignitions (old low voltage ignitions), lots of guys had issues if they put the kill on the regulated side.
