No the voltage was fine. I was using the standard ESC that came with the Phoenix from Hobby King. Basically the ESC couldn't handle the load from the Batteries and the Servos etc. So in flight it cut power to everything . . including the flight surfaces. If you listen when its coming in for a landing the ESC is still beeping away.
I'm still very new to electric Models and I didn't expect the ESC to do what it did. On the Phoenix we now use a UBEC also. Basically if the Speed Controller for the Motor burns out I can't interrupt the power supplied to the Receiver and Servos. I think for bigger models its always going to be better to use a UBEC.
I haven't use the Plush ESC's as yet but yet the feedback has be extremely positive.
I just bought a small 10A Plush that I haven't even fired up once yet. What is wrong with me? Actually I have a box of spare stuff that I haven't tried out. Talk about busy! So far, I've never burned up an ESC though I have lost one along with a whole plane from stupid flying on a much too windy day (there's a newbie tale for telling).
That's funny, I could say the same about servos and Recievers! In one of my HK orders I has some more weight available in my order so I purchased 15 Servos lol I also have a whole heap of recievers left too
yes, i had this problem with 2 Clouds Fly (AXN Floater jet) servo failures and two motors and esc's. I questioned them when i bought them but retailer said its fine!- should have seen his face when i returned them.
