CC Cappack application


I'm working on an Airworld Me 262. (twin motor)

I plan on installing 2 Ice 100 lite ESC's in the Tailcones behind the motors.

I plan on using one Cappack per ESC.

How long can my Esc to Battery length be ???

(measuring from ESC circuit board to actual lipo)

This is information from http://www.castlecreations.com/produ...-cap-pack.html

Aircraft: Larger electric power systems lead to larger electric powered aircraft, and sometimes the distance between the battery pack and the ESC grows beyond the length of the wires installed on the components. Adding wire also adds inductance, which can increase the ripple voltage in a system. CC CapPack essentially negates the ripple caused by the addition of up to 8 inches of length to the battery wires.

You can add an additional 8 inches of wire to the ICE 100... from the end of the case my original wire is 6 inches long... so this would give you about 14 inches... You can also log the ripple to make sure "Ripple voltage peaks should always be less than 10% of the total pack voltage; the smaller the ripple voltage the better. "
