ESCs - always seems to be a big concern with the Polaris. I presume because of the high Kv? Or is it because of the very long motor leads? Partly why I did not order the Modelaero ESC, and found my own which looks like it should run cooler. I will also run a separate BEC to keep ESC heat down. But most of my planes have the ESC stuffed inside - just my FPV planes have them in airflow. This big heavy HK ESC has a pretty large heat sink on it, and we have a cool climate here also. Will do some testing today on ESC heat.

Love the RCAF targets. I just got a bunch more myself, and will stick em on soon (My Zeph has them also)
