Phoenix Ice Lite 50: What's a red LED indicate?
Hoping someone who is familiar with one can help.
My motor(rimfire.32 aka 42-50-800) calls for a 45amp esc. Using a 4S 5000 lipo. 3 standard digital servos.
So I used the Ice lite 50 since I had it on hand.
When I run the motor up to slightly below 3/4 throttle the led is amber.
But when I add more throttle it turns to red. Is this normal or does the red mean it's on it's way to burning up?
Also, in case it matters, I was testing without a prop.
But in any case, would still like to know what the red led is indicating.
Would appreciate any help.

From the Castle site:
Blinks out c • ell-counts /error codes
• Flashes a little at low throttle
• Flashes a lot at high throttle
• Solid on at full-throttle
• Pulses quickly when governor-mode is locked
Yellow LED - used for Data Logging (Phoenix Ice, Phoenix Ice Lite
and Phoenix Ice HV only)
• Yellow LED flashes when logging, and is on continuously
when log is full.
So, I'm guessing what you percieve as amber is the red led flashing. Otherwise, sounds like things are working as they should - GO FLY!!
Hope this helps.

As Steve says... solid red indicates full throttle.
Don't test run for extended periods (>15 seconds) with no prop!

Appreciate the link, but have already checked it. Many times. I haven't found anything stating what the led colors indicate though.
