    Yah a broken coller bone is no fun. Hay, didn't someone on here say the RPM a arms were a bad idea? Seeing since they will flex more than the stock ones? IDK... i run them on my 4x4 slash and 4x4 stampede only because they get bashed, ramped and off roaded. I'd be going through the stock ones like toilet paper if the RPM's weren't on there...but do you want those arms flexing on the XO-1 over 100 mph? Sounds scary IMO.

    Yep I am using RPM Arms, The flexing is minimal and only happens during impact situations. People over-exaggerate the flex of the arms.

    That sucks! Wound up getting a hero for $200. Going to use velcro straps after hearing about your mishap. Did you at least get some expensive footage?

    Yah? How fast were ya going? And how did it throttle up compared to your 4s setup? Or were you easing into it. Was your accident due to that car whirling out of control? Need you to compare notes with the problems i had with that 2200. If you have not run it enough to get a better feel with that setup...then don't compare notes with me on that part just yet.

    I was going to put my GoPro in my XO-1, but when I wrecked the car at 97 and trashed my $40 GPS unit, I decided to buy a cheaper camera for in car videos.

    I went 88 Mph on the Gps but idk what throttle I was at. I think it was because of my radio. It is having Range Problems. Im going to order a new recevier. I actually just scrubbed the curb and the car flipped.
    Actually Im sure it is a radio problem OR a voltage under load problem.

    Yeah I havent had any crashes with cause of blow over just loss of control.
    Maybe Im just a bad driver lol.
