Is there a complete list of programming features? Is it like a Thunderbird or like the ICE? Does it have data logging – if yes I hope it’s a lot more than the ICE?

I see that itís low voltage. Ice is 8s Talon is 6s.

Looks like CC is going after the low price market. I wonder how many they will make in that series?

Does it have multi-rotor firmware? It is a little bog for multi-rotor. They need a 35A or 40A version. That would be very popular.


Where did you see that it had the same programming as ICE but with no data logger?

Is there going to be a whole series of Talon ESCs or is the 90 the only one?

I think the big perk for this esc is that it has an 9 amp continous draw bec with 20 amp peak

Yes - the bec has been great. Running Align or Savox full size servos which are very power hungry & will even shut down our 10 amp CC Bec (5 amp in the ICE wont even stand a chance) the internal bec in the Talon has ran them flawless on my 550. 2 months on several helicopters including 1 6s Fusion 50 & not one brownout!

You would hope that this BEC would find its way onto the ICE ESC's.

I have been running one also. BEC and ext gov support worked flawlessly. Hope other sizes are coming, especially a HV line.

Steve any idea why the Error code sequence was changed?

on the ICE series - 3 beeps represents - Over Current
yet on the talon instead of keeping the same 3 beeps, it's been changed to a long tone, and beep

Thanks,

FCA
