At last a decent explanation on stock esc. Big thanks. 

Will definitely visit [the web site] again, PS could you tell me what is a good esc if this one packs up sorry for asking but I'm still learning.

TIP Page: How to feed the tail drive belt down the boom easily and quickly

Rating 5/5

Hey ChopperAddict,

I took an old tail servo connecting arm, (the rod between the servo and the tail assembly, and cut one end in the shape of a C. I taped it on the other end to an old main shaft to make it long enough to go completely through the boom. I just hook the end of the belt on the C shaped end and slide it through the boom. When it protrudes out the other end, I just pull the rod back out again. Works a treat. Just thought I'd pass that on. I hated feeding the belt through the boom till I rigged this thing up. Takes about 5 seconds now.

My throttle trim did not bring the motor on at all so was a lot out. Now works great.
