Question
Turnigty 12s 100a ESC, how far have you pushed it?

I have one of these and am thinking about trying it on 13s lipos at about 70amps.

Has anyone pushed this esc beyond it`s ststed limits? If so, please let me know what you`ve done.

Thanks, Lee

Check the FETs and maybe other components first to see if they can go over the 12S limit. Some controllers will have FETs that are very close to it's rated voltade. I would imagine the FETs used in your controller are 60V, but that only leaves you with 5.4v to spare as 13S fully charged will be 54.6v, but under load it would be 48.1v.
