One guy got a 25A stock ESC CF kit here in Spain .i think it was the so called Clouds Fly 2.0 and it burned out ..

I still think its better to go safe and go for a 30A or similar trusty ESC

+1. I have a 30A ESC in both of mine. Although it took a year, my first CF finally burned out the ESC. The second ARF did not come with one.

hi the new esc is called aoxan and it basicly is the exact copy of this http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...hless_ESC.html but they re branded and painted it

it is infact so much alike they can be programed with the turnigy programing card

as i plan to use mine for fpv the first thing i did was swap that esc with 30A plush and used the stock 1 for somthing i wouldnt cry about if it droped from the sky

ps this is my second AXN now and the reason for this is bought 1 to learn with and now i can fly the first 1 is to damiged and is being held up by glue lol i thing my AXN is 60% uhu 10% tape and 30% EPO

but i love the fact so much can be done with it i removed 15 cm of each wing on the old 1 and sniped 2 cm of the aelivetor and what im left with is an insane bird.

little tip if u plan to use fpv and would like a bigger battry than 2.2 MAH

buy a nano teck 3000 MAH lipo then under the wing but a hole the length of ur battry and the hight ( clean cut) then slide ur battry in ther and close the gap with same peace u removed and tape in place. then add all fpv gear at the front or towards the front as much as possable.

i found out about the space when i stuck a snake cam in ther to have a look and was shocked about the space in ther

hope this helps

I use/have used 200+ of the HXT900's in the past years and I consider myself knowledgeable about them. I know you still have a bunch of them in your stock. However, I have lately (as you know), been using THESE. I am new to MG servos in park flyers and so far, so good. I put them in 9 different planes now and I love them. I am hoping to twist a few arms in here to have folks try them and give me some feedback on their experience even if it is bad. Since we all know that the servos that come in the CF are pretty much junk (although, cliff seems to have extraordinarily good luck), I am hoping that a few folks will just order 4 of them (if they ever come in) and try them out. Again, my research and experience is minimum and certainly too little to recommend them to anyone (yet). I hope to gather in enough feedback to one day soon recommend them on the SkyS/Bix thread. That is where all of you guys come in. Let me know what you think. TIA to everyone.

You might even want to try a different plane that is "like" the CF. Several of us in this thread own one. It is really intended for FPV. I hope it is OK to post in here. Ah heck, I will anyhow. 2500GENE will never find out. The Bixler is a great FPV plane because that is what it was intended for. It has about twice the area of the CF in the fuselage. Take a look at it HERE AND HERE - cool pictures and video. Oh. HERE is the thread if I have your interest. Those guys over there will help you out with ANYTHING you might want to know. Enjoy...

I have had over 200 flights with the original servos, and just recently replaced the elevator servo. I used HXT900, seems ok. The original servo started to have a slight stutter at full deflection.

No experience with MG servos in the CF, but looking forward to your review. I have used this one in helis and one other plane. Comes highly recommended from heli threads, and good user feedback on HK forum. Has one ball bearing and top three gears are metal. It is in stock too.

There are a lot of "right" answers to your question, IMO. Here is mine.

Now I see the mention of brushless in the description- I had been looking at some others, that did not have that caption , such as HK SS series

Much obliged AJ

Good for you for finding it. In the future, something that might help to identify an ESC quicker is - 3 wires = brushless, 2 wires = brushed. Obviously, I am referring the the side opposite the battery leads that are almost always red/black. I hope that helps.

I use the Power Up 32A ESC from HeadsUpRC.com. The additional heatsink is nice and you have some headroom for different motor/prop combinations. A 40A would also be a good choice if you plan on buying a higher KV motor or running 4S batteries in the future.

Glad you mentioned 40A, that's what I'm using. It has mixed reviews for helis but works great for this plane. It has a switching BEC which assures plenty of servo power. I would get the programming card too, it is often on backorder. Only 5g heavier than the 30A Plush, which is also great, but on backorder
