    ET-3s Qs

    if i get it what will i need i know i need a castle link but do i need a bec or is it on one already. also what size bullets are on it. ill be running a spektrum dx3c so ill need to turn off the CLL (for the TQi) any other things positive or negative about it. i think it is the same as a mmp so i thinking it will make a good esc to regulate power to a novak hv 550 5.5 motor (anything i need to make that work with the above electronics) to make a pede trail truck.

    I would suggest picking up a Castle Link or Field Programming Card just to make changes/ updates to it easier. It does have a built in BEC, but they tend to be weak. If you run stock 2075 Servo and such you should be ok. But on another note you may need one for the Spektrum or at least a Glitch Buster. Yes you will need to turn off CLL to use the Spektrum. So to the first question, now you will definitely need a Link or Card. The bullet connectors are 3.5mm. I upgraded mine to 4.0mm. Other than all this you should be good to go. So far everything seems to be very comparable to the MMP other than having CLL and no on/off switch.

    Take a look on eBay you should be able to pick up the ET-3S for a nice price.

    Hope this helps ya.

    Anytime man, anytime. I use the Racer's Edge Glitch Buster, any of them should do a great job. They range from $5 on ^.

    Glitch Buster @ Amainhobbies or Glitch Buster @ eBay

    If you spend anymore than $10 on one i'd suggest a CC BEC 10A for $20ish.

    Yes the 3.5mm bullets are compatible with one another, well should be.

    I run a glitch buster with my mmp and a exi d226f servo in my p2de and also in my p4de with a sc8 esc and same servo. I got mine for like 4 bucks each at tower but they discontinued that type.

    I finally soldered up the CC 10A BEC last night. Went for the one on my Desert Rat Sl4sh. Everything went smooth, took a few extra minutes to keep everything nice & clean. Man what a difference that makes for a Savox 1258TG servo.

    My thoughts, skip the BEC and extra wiring and just get a Hitec servo. You won't get the same specs as the Savox, but you can get close and no one has actually verified the speeds / power of Savox vs Hitec.

    I set my LVC to 3.6V. I havent really been much of a fan of the CLL just yet, so I just turn it off.

    @ Slaughter you don't necessarily have to go with a BEC you can use a Glitch Buster that works just fine. Those are around $5 or so.
