E-Flite Maxx 25 ESC how many servos can this thing handle

I have a E-Flite Maxx 25 ESC from a Electrajet that crashed and I want to use in on another plane. Does anyone happen to know how many servos this ESC can handle running? I would like to put 4 servos.

Alot is going to depend also on how many cells and what type of servos. Many BEC setups are rated at 1-1.5 amps.

If the surfaces and linkages are very free and you use good servos (like Hitecs) and you keep the cells to 8 or less with good ESC cooling. Testing the servos under load is a good idea, trying to keep the load less than 1/2 the BEC output.

You also don't want to use a servo that is to small for the job, but not to heavy either.

4 servos should be OK if you keep the above in mind.

Cool

I was planning on a small dual 280 plane using 4 HS55 servos with 7 cells.

Thanks.
