What's the favorit prop for those of you running the 60xl on 6S? And what type of amps are you seeing?

I'm getting around 82 amps at full throttle with a fresh pack on a Turnigy 17x8 Light Electric Prop, Castle ICE 100amp, and Rhino 6S 4900mah 25C packs. A little over 1800W and very nice pull out of hover all the way through the pack.

I removed the extention between the ESC and RX, but the load was still too much for the BEC with the 4 x BLS451.

I will put in the CC BEC Pro tomorrow and give it another go.

The good news is that now it is tested that the BEC will not go up in flames when over-loaded, and as long as you do not have a system that takes long to boot, there is no harm in giving it a try with an untested combo.

So far, the ICE100 BEC works fine with 6s and HS7985.
7s and BLS451, not so much...

Anyone running the CC Bec Pro, what should the led color be when power is plugged in and everything is running normal? If I recall correctly, the original ccbec was green, but this appears to be red?


edit: Nevermind...called Castle and red is A-ok.


Just ran her up for the first time. I didn't bother charging the turnigy 20C (23.22V for the test). Still pulled ~78 amps and nearly 1700 watts.

My heart is still beating faster just from the spool-up. The noise/wind was a rush...

Noah,

I'm right in there with everyone else. 89a on 18x8, 77a on 17x8. I'm flying the 17x8 & happy with the punch & overall performance.

Which 18x8 prop? I had one from HC and saw 110amps and 2500 watts....WAY TOO MUCH for my combo (same as yours) so propped back down to 17x8.

Well she's ready to roll. Just finished mounting the bec to the motorbox, and mounting the cowl. I'm planning on doing another charged battery amp/watt check tonight, and then finding the correct cg. Maiden may come tommorow, but that depends on my assessment of the local field. Goldcraft was telling me they've been installing more lights.

I set the CCbec pro (running off TP 2s 1350 pro lite) to 5.5 volts (5.1V default). I may go up to 6.0, but I'm not sure yet. I doubt I'd be able to tell a difference of the 0.5V.

Isn't that the noise where the Decapitated persons head hits the basket?

Oops, I've been reading stories about the Dark Ages again...
