    ESC / BEC problems with Flite Test ESC

    Hi Folks- back to the hobby after a 40 year break! I'm having troubles with the ESC supplied with the Flite Test "power pack B" (it's labled 35A / BEC 3A 5V / LIPO 2S-4S). I've got a Tattu 1300mAh 45C 3S battery. The issue is that when I connect the battery to the ESC, I get the full...

    Naza Lite ESC/receiver

    My brother picked up parts from an engineering class at UCI. 2300KV cobra motors, props, and a naza lite flight controller. Apparently, the naza lite is powered by the PMU, so I was wondering if I get 30 amp simonk esc with BEC, can it power the FC or are all the positive wires that go in the FC...

    Naze32 Temps are warm when plugged in

    Hey. I'm building my first quad (FT 210 frame) and plugged in my naze and it works fine. I noticed that when I plugged in my Lipo the board gets to around 125 degrees in about 7 seconds before I unplug it afraid that I'm going to fry the board. I have checked that all solder joints are...

    Micro triplane

    I am making a twin motor micro triplane with micro quad motors and 6 amp escs. I want to use a bec but the escs I have don't have the red wire required. I still need to keep things light so how should I power the receiver?

    Diving into the deep endSn

    Like a lot of the posts I've seen, I am interested in 250 racing quads. I recently purchased a Carbon Fiber frame from a local shop, and have mounted the motors. I'm now looking to add the ESCs and trying to understand the necessary steps involved when setting them up. It's like drinking from a...

    Hello, I have a question about the ESC that you provide in the powerpack D for quads ? Do they all have a BEC ? Is it better if only one of them as a BEC ? Can we remove BECs ? What is UBEC ? And another question : are the...

    Question about BEC setup on a Acro Naze32 board.

    I purchased a Suppo 3A External BEC since my ZTW Spider 20A OPTO ESC's don’t provide power. Since this is my first Quadcopter build, I want to make sure I understand how to connect the BEC correctly. Could I take M1 ESC and pull the signal wire out and plug that single wire into the BEC and...

    Can I power a receiver with an ESC and no motor?

    I want to know if I can power a receiver with an ESC with a BEC built in without connecting a motor. Is the motor required or does the BEC just split the voltage from the battery and regulate it? If not then how do gliders have their receivers powered? Would a Turnigy Plush 6A ESC with 5V, 0.8A...

    KK2 ESC Confusion.

    Hey guys, so I've asked around and got a few different answers, but can you plug four 15 amp multistar ESC's (switching BEC's) straight into the KK2.1.5 (HC)? Or do you need some 'remove red wire' disabling shenanigans? Cheers.

    Can a 30A ESC with 2A BEC support 4 or even 6 HXT900 servos?

    After some kind guys on here talked me down from a 2200KV motor for my first plane (FT Swappable Trainer with 4 servos), I now have a NTM Prop Drive 28-26 1200KV in my sights for it. I'm part way through the build, and also have a Versa Wing cut out! I would like to use a Turnigy 30A Plush 2A...
