ok, good to know. I don't really trust the 3a ESCs though, I think with high power 1s setups like the AP05 5000kv or the nCPX motor you want at least a 7a ESC to pack a bit more punch.

Bhoov just put me on to this ESC, I think this will be our new go to ESC for 1s BL Conversions in the future

I bought a bunch of tiny little FET's to double-stack the output stages of those little "3A" ESC's, and increase their output. It's documented here on RCG and other places.

Of course once I got those little suckers I quickly got distracted with other tasks...
