No probs. E-power is still a very confusing thing for those who aren't in the know. And even for those of us who are.......

Ya gotta play with prop sizes to get into the proper "zone" (watts/amps) You WILL need something to measure this - or else go with what others recommend (which is what I do). A lot of my equipment is home-made (due to the fact that my fiscal resources are very limited), so I tend to read a ton and go with what works for other guys. I do my *heavy* reading over on RCGroups, and come here to touch base with the "homeboys".

If you want to venture out on your own, you will need a Whattmeter (sold by Astro - or something similar) at the very least.

Being a follower can be a very good thing - especially if there are landmines around.......

F.Y.I. and F.W.I.W. World Toola are up to $133.20 for the 36 volt DeWalt battery. I guess the honeymoon is over. Back to EEEKBay.

I just emailed World Tools asking if they might put Dewalt packs on sale again in the next few months.

Hmm. Maybe a few emails from potential buyers might encourage them to have another sale ...
