BVM 5012 viofan ?

Ive just recently acquired a bvm maverick with the 5012 viofan setup. my question is can I use the new packs from BVM with out having to change the esc? Ive heard you cant use the 65c lipos with this fan cause the esc cant handle the high discharge and just want to confirm this before I purchase a set of lipos.

My next question is can I run the 5012 on 10s or is it a 12s fan setup only?

thanks...

The 4010 and the 5012 were the same motors and esc - they just went to low timing for the 5012.

I bought one of their old demo ones (4010) a few years ago and asked that same question they basicly said no - long story short, they upgraded the esc to the HV160 for free so I could use the newer packs. It has now been re-designated as a 4410 by BVM.

Thanks Skyhawk...well looks like I have replace the esc and because I bought the jet second hand I don't think BVM will replace this esc for free. Guess I will go another rout with batteries with a lower C rating for now. Just need to find a set that fits this jet.

thanks again...
