I'm not "using" mine because it doesn't work. It quit during a brief run-up without mainblades, the current draw was quite low at the time.

I would love to hear of somebody successfully using one. Not sure what to do except send it to Etienne at ICARE and see what they can do with it.

The Kontronic Beat controllers seem to have a good reputation, are there others suitable for the Logo 10 that are robust enough to last through bench testing and actually fly?

Thanks
Eric

Wow rcman, I guess we're it. Hope nobody else has these problems when they get theirs going. I'm waiting on a reply to a couple of emails I sent to Cyberheli and Icare.

My question still stands - what would be a good alternative to the Schulze controller and where to get it?

Thanks
Eric

Well, I am having the same problems with the new 18.46K, both of them!. The first one ran for about 5 seconds, the second one for about 2 minutes. The motor just shuts off. I get the melody now when connecting power but no tone for arming. The only troubleshooting tip provided by Schulze is to increase throttle travel.

I think the probem is more than likely with the controller's microcode. I hope not though because I would really hate to have to send them in for service.

Does anyone have one that is working??

I emailed Schulze support last Tuesday and I still don't have an email from them
