Is this esc able to power 4 digital mg servos and motor on my fpv raptor?
The servos im using are Turnigy XGD-11MB Digital Mini Servo 2.2kg / 11g / 0.12 and the stock motor for for now but will upgrade motor soon and i use $pektrum ar6210 w/sat and 3s lipo.
I know its probably a bit over kill amps wise but im thinking about the bec, i don't fully understand becs and don't know if i should be using a separate bec? Also what is a switchable bec? Is this one as it says sbec?
Sure, if you don't need "reverse"... This is made for planes/heli, where you don't need to go backward, so it only handles from stop to full speed in one direction : clockwise or anticlockwise, depends on the way you program the ESC or solder it to your motor.
i tested the birdie with my standard combo the max reading on HK wattmeter with just charged 6cell 3000mah 30c bat was 42A at 100pcnt WOT flying 5 mins later with same batt on same charge on same combo i got only 2 mins flying my HK P-51 1.2m the motor went screech and stopped i retained controll and landed ok now beeps r faint and motor doesnt work until i put orig esc then no prob... waiting cs response
Hey. You have to do it step by step: First turn off both (plane and radio). Then turn on your radio and put throttle in the highest stick-position. Now connect battery with esc and wait for a second. (Beep-tone should be emitted). Now quickliy put the throttle to the lowest postion and some other beep's will be emitted (counting the number off cells normally).
HF and sorry for my english *)
Thanks for the good tip. I'm using a tgy9x and the throttle is working as normal. If i misunderstood you're help, please give detail. i still need a solution. The ESC doesn't beep. It smoked up when it was first installed and then worked for a short while. I figured the smoke was just an effect of the first time it heated up. It will spin a motor rapidly, but i think i need to change the setting to rapid rpm, or for outrunner to make it stop stuttering, however there is no beeps!! so i can't change settings. THIS ESC HEATS UP. It heats up the second that it is "armed" before the motor even turns over. And i mean too hot to touch. What do you make of that? is it normal, or do i risk sending it back for warrantee.
if you want me to say the truth is that many of these are defective ESC I buy one of these i I was the same as you i then buy another drive was defective HobbyKing i also want a good tip for buying bariadores Turnigy such high amps since these are not much reliable.
That depends on how many cells you are going to use. 3500kv with 4.5x4.5 might draw over 30A on 3s, the amp will jump to ~50A at 4s. So it should be good for 3cell setup, be careful when testing with 4s. I would buy a ~$24 Turnigy wattmeter before high amp test, a good lowcost long term investment for electriflying. Happy flying!
Motor 'stutters' very badly on start-up then runs smoothly after about half throttle. Have tried all timing and P.W.M. settings but no luck. Have tried it on several motors but still get the same problem.
Have not used this ESC as something will go bang!
Anyone got a solution or have I got a duff one?
When I used this ESC in the beginning, starting up was fine but sometimes it may reverse the motor rotation for no apparent reason. Later flying in my parkzone P47 using 3s at ~50 amps seems fine though. Good to hear some other complaints and be more cautious running this ESC.
Flew my Skywalker with this on Saturday and the ESC Caught on fire. I almost lost my plane with very expensive avionics in it. My fault for trying to be thrifty. But still his ESC looked to be of better quality then it was. Thats what I get. Going back to my 60Amp ESC to power the system.
I flew a parkzone p-47 with retract (3s, 30C 2450mah, APC 10x7 prop). All up weight ~1300g. Amp draw is ~50A at full throttle. Been flying perfectly. Coming down cool with my style flying. Price went up a bit from $15 though. Definitely a good buy.
Running this on DPS edf and it was very powerful at first then went down when heat starting build up around 50A of draw but still up and running. So use this with proper cooling

this product was easy to program and worked well out of the box no flight test yet but soon! make sure to program as default settings are most likely not appropriate for most applications.

Great esc. Worked without programming it. Good large heat sink and also the heat shrink is not covering it to allow even better cooling. Used 29amps on 3200kv motor running a 4.5x4.5 prop on a windrider elebee.

Put about 20 or so 10 minute flights on it and was pulling between 40 and 50 amps and it never has even become warm. Easy to program, but came with no instructions but the manual is on HK . The issue I've had is that when I program it to recognize a lipo, it doesn't work. So I put on a voltage alarm and set it to "nimh auto" which is dangerous but not without an apartment. The other is it is big and heavy. Other than that it works perfect.
