Fightercat.com Re-Opened

Just a quick line to let everybody interested in buy an ESC for EDF use that Fighter Cat just re-opened their store and have the EDF ESC's in stock (300A, 400A and 200A - 24S).

Here's the website address to the ESC section.

I just bought a 300A version today. The 200A has been discontinued. The 300A version weights 7 oz without heat sink and the heat sinks goes from 1.2oz (ultra light) to 2.4 (light). For $359.00 its a hell of a deal. I was looking at Schulze ($509) and MGM Compro ($544.54). So I bought American and saved $$$ in the process.

XPS is working in something in the 160A range. Price wise the XPS will be a little less $$$ than the Fightercat but they still testing the firmware and that's what delaying the release. The Fightercat 300A really costs $210.00 but when you add the 90 days satisfaction guaranteed it increases $126 in price. For $336 you get a 300A ESC which is not bad. Maybe Fightercat will re-desing the 200A ESC.

My understanding FCRC did the MCU programming for SunRise escs...

I don't understand the price difference also between the 120 and 180...such a large spread.

ESCs are coming down in price and up in power....

Good for us no doubt

been down that road with HK Tunigy controllers and fried 2 of them. I won't go cheap on controllers anymore. I just want something other than CC now after all the issues they are having so if I can find something reliable in the 120-160 amp range I would get it.

I've gone expensive and lost planes and valuable time, I'm going to stick with what works no matter the cost.

Club member lost a plane on lock of a popular tx\rx.....someone came to the field 10 mins later to report they're the 5th pilot to lose an aircraft in the same spot with the tx\rx combo...

I look at the FCRC and Sunrise model components and they are good for what they are, I don't know why the other brands want to sell the items for 4 to 5 times the cost of HK or the other sellers and offer slightly more support.

That's what I am saying. HK controllers have not worked for me, CC HV controllers are no longer trustworthy, etc. I just want a reliable option at this point. Expensive certainly does not mean its the best, you are right about that.

MCU and rails designed and Programmed in FL, copied in China...look at the board etching...no doubt these things will carry current.
