Interesting...
Just compared the pic to an Align 610 that I have here. The top of the case is totally different. Definitely not the same servo.

bitter-sweet, but at least you were able to salvage some things

i don't think I've heard anyone report on one of Ken's esc's.

On 8s, you could probably get away with a ice 75, but i don't think there is much difference in price.

I know that in talking to him one time, he said he was having problems with them, and wasn't selling them, but it looks like he is selling them now, so perhaps he has them working now....

When i tried to buy one a month ago they were still having problems with them. I have the fm-10 on my 33 extra and it works great even with me pulling 13A out of it at full throttle on the 9x4.7. love that prop though. if you can be patient you can find an ice 100 on the classifieds in new condition for 80-90. i really like castle for ease of programming and fixed endpoints are a must for me now. Castle is in everything i fly 48" and up.

just looked at specs again.It only goes to 6s for lipo use.So if you are running 6s in your 74 you be cool.

Just got a email from Ken.... he said: The FM80 & FM120 they work fine but not for 3D... something to do with the modulation for 3D flights makes the esc go into safe mode to easy. He said normal flying is fine for the 80 and 120 and anything under the 80amp is great for 3D... he also said he is and has been working on a 80amp and larger ones for us 3D pilots!

Cool and honest guy! I had a really detailed email back and forth over the last few days with Ken.... about life, business ethics, and rc stuff.... he is a real good guy and totally has his heart into doing the best for RC.... He has a customer for life with me!
