  5. Video: What is the source of this grinding/clicking sound?

    Good points you make. I also fly airplanes and helis, all electric. I'm a member of an RC flying club and there is nothing more annoying than someone running up their nitro airplane in the pits. I...

    I really don't care about the realism of sound and don't care for OBA. I actually prefer the electric sound. Also, the sound of nitro engines is very annoying to me.

    My SMC 4s 6700 batteries are a very tight fit and the gray battery holders are slightly bowed with the batteries installed. I'm assuming this bowing is OK?
