I have a spare castle Ice 50. The 6s motrofly setup draws 50-55 A. I've pushed the old Phoenix 25 adn 35A esc's well beyond their capacity with no issues doing 3D for years. Any known differences in the Ice line up that woudl drive me to buy a new 75A vs using my existing 50A?
I'm used to using HS-65MG on the 4' planes. Will HS-225MG feel about the same or would they feel slower?
Thanks for the input and helping me get into the next class of airframe.
Putting two 3S 2200mAH packs in series for 6S would only give you the equivalent of a 6S 2200mAH pack which would give you about three minutes flying time....
You would be better off with at least a 75 amp, ESC, but for this size plane, most people prefer a 100 amp, for the added headroom. HS-225 servos are just as fast or faster...
