need FAQ for castle!
I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, but I think Patrick or Shawn should set up an FAQ. So next time someone asks a question, they can be pointed to the FAQ instead of having to type out individual answers. I realize there's one on www.castlecreations.com, but it doesn't answer many of the questions I've seen posted here. Some questions I've seen over and over again are....
-how hot is too hot?
-is the current rating for full throttle or partial?
-how many lipo's should I use to be under the voltage limit?
-is going slightly over the voltage limit as bad as going over the amperage limit?
-is there an advantage to high voltage systems?
-can I use the BEC's from two controllers at the same time?
-can I run two motors with one controller?
-can I run two controllers on one motor?
-how can I tell if I can program my controller?
-can I add capacitors?
-what is soft start exactly?
-can I extend motor wires?
-can I extend battery wires?
-Which controller do I have (include pictures of ALL controllers Castle has made)
-what's the diffrence between the different generatios of controllers?
-is the astro controller made by castle? how is it different?
-can sensored motors be run with sensorless controllers?
-can sensorless motors run on sensored controllers?
-what is sensorless, and how does it work (overexplaining this would be good)
-does pheonix link work with Mamba?
-what motors can I use with the Mamba?
-are you going to make a high voltage ESC in the future?
-are you going to make a higher amperage controller for LMR, etc
-is there reverse voltage protection on your ESC's?
-why should I buy a Castle speed control over the European designs?
-are your controllers rated correctly? they're so tiny!!
I'm sure I left something out, so fill me in.
CC puts a lot of effort in supporting individuals and replying to individual questions, which is great and appreciated by many people. However, I also have been wondering why the answers to the most common questions are not put on the FAQ. I see many advantages:
-Faster access to almost unavoidable questions like “which timing advance to use”
-as knowledge base, even for people who know a specific issue has been discussed in the past. Suppose I have an unexpected cut-off. It has been discussed often, but where do I start to narrow down the problem?
-when common questions appear in this newgroup, many people are happy to help. Also this is great, but, IMHO, there is always a chance that the reproduced answers are less accurate
-less trivial support work for CC
