First dry test done

I finally had some time to continue my Wicked AMX project, so I made some dry tests (fan held in hand) with the Wicked Wemo combo. The results are quite near what Don had reported earlier in his tests:

ESC: Hobbywing Pentium 30A (low timing)
Motor: Wicked 4800
Fan: Wemotec Microfan
Battery: Turnigy 4S 1000 30-40C

Current: 28,7A
Peak power: 428W

One thing worth of mentioning is that ESC was quickly warm (not hot) just after some short 3-5 second WOT bursts. Maybe I replace it with 40A controller in order to avoid burning it. Currently it's -15 celcius here in Finland but during summer it might not be able to handle the current.
