Can I use a Kontroniks 3-SL-70-6-18 with a Hacker motor

Just wanted to know if I could use my 3-SL 70 with a B50-18S Hacker motor. Also does the hacker put out more power than an Aveox 1412/2Y on 16 cells in a Midi fan?
Thanks JJ

Kontonic ESC

Joe, Yes you can I'm flying my F-86 B50-13XL with the 3SL-70-6-18 Kontronic ESC. Works fine I'm also using one with my B50-18S in my Midi powered F-86. I have one of the new Hacker/Jeti 77AMP 30 cell ESC on order to try.

Bob,
Who did you order the Jeti from. I have the 70A opto in my 125% F-18 with the B50 18S and it shuts down after about 2 mins. I think because of the thermal safety.

Jim-I was having similar problems with the shut down with the Jet 40 3p opto on Astroflight 805s. It was more of a receiver glitching problem for me. Now I wrap my receivers in aluminum tape on all my Jeti applications and have never had the problem again.

Yes it works very well, it's a very good match for the Hacker, I have a similar combination. The Jeti 70A opto also works very well, but it's a few percents less efficient... The newer Jeti's are more efficient, they will be available inthe US in a few months.

dorysch1,
No it's not in the air stream. The first 2 flights were on a day when it was 25 degrees and no problem. Last flights temp. was up in the 60's.
Gordon,
It worked for over 2 mins., mostly full bore before it quit. Do you think it was a radio glitch shut down?
BTW it's putting in ~950W.

Jim_ My Jeti's would run perfect for a flight and then quit on the next, then quit after 2 minutes, even had them quit in the middle of a take off run. When I tryed the foil around the receiver it started working fine everytime. Could not explain why.
