Please be aware that a micro switch is another component that can fail. Generally it is best not to use switches, but....

As things are not totally in the control of Multiplex, such as what RX is used they have to make the best educated guess as to what will work with what.

On a scope I have seen the voltage spike with the YEP ESC. You might want to ask Multiplex technical services if this is possible with the ZTW (their OEM) ESC. Or better yet take a look for yourself. Better DVO meters should catch the voltage spike.

At 5.1V the servos might be self protecting but at higher voltages the servo can develop enough power to strip its own gears.

If going to 4 cells drop down to a 10x6 or 10x5 prop to keep the load below 40 amps.

Cut it twice and it's still too short!

I’ve been reading of connector failures with the Heron’s wing connectors. While I may have been the only guy that liked the Cularis’s auto plug in system it was great in that one didn’t need, or where prone, to pull on the leads themselves. To overcome this limitation with the Heron's system I’ve added a pull tab to the male connector. I drill a small 0.60mm hole in the back of the connector and then thread some dental floss making a hoop that can go around my small finger.

It's a sad day here in the USA as Horizon Hobbies (Tower Hobbies) is no longer carrying Multiplex models. To the best of my knowledge the only source for Multiplex models in the USA is Hitec's Weekender Warehouse. Not sure if they have a dealer support program.
