I've brought some water to a boil, took the pot off the burner, dipped the disc in for about a minute, then pulled it out, and set it top down on the counter and put another pot on it to keep it flat while it cools. May be other methods as well, but that's always been fine for me.

I do the hot water pot trick if its warped, but i never put weight on the disc, just lay it on a flat surface and it should cool off and be fine, but if its still warped repeating the process a couple times works. I am just afraid weight will change the discs flight, as it has in the past when i have put weight on a cooling disc.

Now just scale it up to 12-13 speed class to do some serious butt kicking.
I have to take my words back a bit. today with some warm up i got really nice throws with these. 115 meters was piece of cake. width of gentle S-turn throw was like 10 meters with gentle hyzer release.

Man, I hope that it's just my form being in flux and this happens for me, I get so little glide out of the Tesla right now it's comparable to a Shock in distance and flight.

You could try a lighter weight Tesla. My 165 and 167 each show a bit of high speed turn, while my max weights are just straight to fade. I like the lighter ones when I need a little more glide, and the heavies when I want more predictability.

Actually, I did throw one shot that had a bit of turn in it, today, and I can't remember but I bet it was my 169g one. The other ones are all over 172. Hmm.

... also, I need to get my form in shape. :P

The Tesla is truly a workhorse driver. I wasn't overly thrilled with my first inertia (like the second better), but I clicked with the Tesla right away. It reminds me of a longer crave. I know people have said longer volt, but the proton volt I had was a bit glideless, and strangely overstable. The Tesla is straight for days with a reliable end/forward fade. MVP has a real winner here.

Got my Tesla in the mail today and took it out to the soccer field.

167 Neutron Tesla. Thrown with 300' power (mostly FH, a little BH)

At this lower power, and brand new, the Tesla behaves very overstable. Thrown flat into a moderate headwind it is very straight with a hard fade. Behaves quite similarly to a Champion Firebird (yeah I threw them side by side into the wind). It can be flexed a little and won't turn over at all.

The disc was brand new so I'm guessing it will take a little time for some of the fade to beat out of it a little.

Anyway for noodle arm throwers this disc feels like more of a utility OS driver and they might be better off with a Shock or Resistor. I'm guessing you need to be up closer to 375' or more to really get good use out of this one.
