Is there a complete list of programming features? Is it like a Thunderbird or like the ICE? Does it have data logging – if yes I hope it’s a lot more than the ICE?

Same programming features as the ICE but without data logging.

I see that itís low voltage. Ice is 8s Talon is 6s.

Looks like CC is going after the low price market. I wonder how many they will make in that series?

Does it have multi-rotor firmware? It is a little bog for multi-rotor. They need a 35A or 40A version. That would be very popular.


Where did you see that it had the same programming as ICE but with no data logger?

Yes it's 3 - 6s and will have all the same functions including multi rotor just no data logging.

I work for Castle & have been testing it since Aug. so I guess I just kinda know lol

Is there going to be a whole series of Talon ESCs or is the 90 the only one?

The 90 is the only one that we have in this line for right now.

I think the big perk for this esc is that it has an 9 amp continous draw bec with 20 amp peak

#9 RS Rogers Oct 31, 2012 07:49 AM

Yes - the bec has been great. Running Align or Savox full size servos which are very power hungry & will even shut down our 10 amp CC Bec (5 amp in the ICE wont even stand a chance) the internal bec in the Talon has ran them flawless on my 550. 2 months on several helicopters including 1 6s Fusion 50 & not one brownout!

You would hope that this BEC would find its way onto the ICE ESC's.

#11 ForceFedDSM Oct 31, 2012 03:02 PM

I have been running one also. BEC and ext gov support worked flawlessly. Hope other sizes are coming, especially a HV line.

Steve any idea why the Error code sequence was changed?

on the ICE series - 3 beeps represents - Over Current
yet on the talon instead of keeping the same 3 beeps, it's been changed to a long tone, and beep

Thanks,

FCA

Just ordered one off the CC website...does this need a phase sensor to use ext. Gov. with VBar? Thanks!

CC is making a special RPM sensor but I donít know it itís out yet. Did you see it listed on the CC website?

Does CC Data Link Live works also with it , that we can use telemetry , if yes it would be great if it can output the data of the bec too :D
