Hi Laddie,

I gave up on my 4 way speed controller, after a couple of damaging efforts with the Albatross, I tried it in my Depron Lanc and found some trouble on the ground before getting airborn. Maybe it was just a faulty unit. It has a different logo from yours, but the hardware looks identical..

Both the Albatross and the Lanc have given me great service with 4 of these cheap and cheerful 40amp ESCs wired up in the same way. Yours looks like the same parallel configuration as mine, except that I used a separate BEC in all cases.

I was wondering whether my receiver might be too weedy to control 4 ESCs through one channel. It manages the 4 separate ones without a problem. It is an FrSky, 6 channel, FASST compatible.

For anyone interested, the November 2014 issue of Electric Flight Magazine features plans and a construction article for Ivan's DH90:

All my attempts to check it out took me to the page where I have to subscribe to the magazine.

That's the only link I could get. It does show the table of contents but MAN/Electric Flight Magazine does not allow anyone to view actual magazine content without a subscription. Just wanted to make anyone who may be interested in purchasing the magazine aware that the article is in that issue.

And the September edition (maybe it was the August one) had plans for Laddie's DH91 Albatross. That one was Quiet and Electric Flight, not Electric Flight. Still, it's good to see that they're offering something more ambitious than usual.
