View Full Version : Airplane ESC

Just wondering if anyone has tried using an ESC from an airplane. I was thinking of giving a 65 amp ESC a try since it should fit in the battery compartment. I am just not sure if it would run cool enough. I could always mount a fan above it and cut a hole in the chassis, but there would be no heatsink.

a true airplane ESC will have no brakes and your neutral point will have to be reset or it will be in a weird place

sure you can use an airplane esc.
i would go for one off *********s supersimple esc. they are by far the best bang for the buck with airplane esc.. i have used airplane esc for 5 years in cars. and no problems at all. most plane esc have brakes, but they are usually very strong so it will flip the little merv like pancakes.
go for det 60-70A version of the ss on *********, then you have up to 6-7cells lipos. thats whats going in mine.
i have pistix adapter but never use it. i like the rubber band better. just put a rubber band to keep trottle in reverse/full brake. then you can adjust the slack so that you have mm of play and have like a neutral spot before brakes goes on. off course you can use digital trim on some remotes to get neutral point where you want it, but i always used the rubber band.
good luck with it all :)

i use a quark 80 comp esc a bit pricey for some at 129 but i like it. fully programmable. not to difficult also can run up to 6s lipo, which i have onlyonce nuts. but in general i really like it. i am also going to put one in my sportwerks recoil pro.
