In our 109th installment of the show, we talk a bit about electric power systems, especially how they apply to designs like our QSC TriCopter that we are building for this years Scratch-Build Club project. We actually have two systems that John and I have tried and we like them both. Also, the RCadviser discusses issues that are the real root cause to crashes.

My lightweight system flies great with a typical 3s2200 LiPo, while John's more powerful setup flies nicely on a 3s2600 - 3s4000.
