Well, I always say there is nothing like a good experiment to add a little data to the fire...........
I hooked it all up via the supplied motor wires and gave it a whirl with lipo connected up to a WATTSUP meter!
no smoke.....................but, no high power either. It limited itself at 30 amps. Eliminating the extension wires showed the previously tested 38 amps. I'm guessing good ole Ohm's law is working here and the IR drop at higher currents acted as a self limiter! Beond 30ish amps, probably just warming the the pilots butt!
So, if i continue down this path, BIGGER motor extension wires will go in
