it depends on the prop and cell count you are using. If propping for over 100 amp operation then no,if not,rock on.

I'm in a situation where I was speculating that our Pheonix ICE100 is faulty. Plane is new to us. I put a video of the problem a few pages back. We had the Low Voltage cutoff at 3.2 and it was tripping the hard shutoff. Recently switched it to soft but haven't tried it out again yet.

I know we need a watt meter to check for sure, but, hypothetically, if our 4325, with the 18x8 is supposed to only pull 89 amps, that wouldn't matter to the ICE 100 in terms of cutoff right? I mean, voltage cutoff is a battery thing and not a problem between the motor and the speed control, right?

Just don't want to spend $140 for two new 4S packs if batts are not the problem and we should be calling Castle.

Also wondering if the ICE 120 would remedy the problem if we were asking for too much from the 100...

You did a great job on this plane!!! I will have to say that I am very impressed. It will be my new Plane when practicing for my New 71 that I just got about a month ago.

If you can see your way to going a little higher on the "C" rating of the batteries, I would suggest doing so. 30C would definitely be as low as I would want to go...I'm using 65C myself.

wow! I've 4 betteries in transit from HK. All 30C :-( guess I'd have to try them out and dependeing on how they perform I may order higher Cs. Using the setup I mentioned above, where does rudder servo fit? Tail or pull pull? Thanks Steve.

Wanted 3dhobbyshop 48" EPP Extra 330 Starboard main wing

Each post of this request was meant to target buyers of models from 3DHS that may like most have more then one model from that vendor as many here do and not use the classified adds this seem to be the only way to reach the buyers of this brand. A little dog not mine ruined my wing and I have not gotten a response from 3DHS since 10/9 about getting a new wing, as the wing is the only part that is damaged I am searching for a replacement
I need the starboard main wing for a 3dhobbyshop 48" EPP Extra 330, if you have one I am in the market, please send me a PM
thanks alot

With either 6s5000 or 8s4000 you get about 6-7 minutes depending on your 3d style and throttle usage. I used to get 7:30 doing mostly low and slow hovers and harriers, now I fly more high energy stuff and have moved the timer down to 6:20 and usually put about 4000 mah back into my 5300 packs.
