Help!
ESC settings for Wicked 5400

At last this made it out the box & into an Alfa A4. Doing shop testing as I assemble.
Plan is for 3s TP 45C either 1750 or 2200. ESC is CC Phoenix 25. I initially had problems reading the ESC and it turned out to be on normal timing which didn't allow the fan to spool up. On Low timing & PMW 12 Khz on an 850mah partly charged test battery, which only has a red JST connector I get 22.8 amps.
Would PMW 8 be a better setting??

NB I will post on CC as well

The Pentium ESCs I sell are 8kHz PWM, and I set them to "low" timing, and "normal" startup. You will want to start with similar on the Castle ESC. Are you running the 3 blade alfa rotor or the 5 blade rotor?

Thanks for the quick reply Don. I am using the 3 blade fan. I will try 8 PWM
