Blade 230S power up part 3

Upgraded main motor and tail blade, now ditching the blade 2in1 esc unit. Test unit for my UH-1 Huey build, turnigy 18a plush main esc and dys xm10a unit for the tail. Bench test all plug n play, dead easy. Plush is exactly that, plush with its nice smooth start and 2A bec to power everything. Dys is flashed with blheli so we can tune that in to !

Now to clean it all up, and detail it out , test fly it and fine tune the esc units then fit up into the huey shell.

Now to do the same on my powered up 200srx tri blade with hi po main motor.... A soft smooth start will be great on that as well.

Extensive bench testing last night, the digital servos pull allot of power ! The 2A bec is getting pretty warm. Might look at the 25 amp plush as it has a 3A bec, or go with a seperate bec power supply. Will fly it pod n boom first to check.

Checking on bec specs the linear units do run warm, they drop the voltage from the battery to 5.5 volts and dissipate the excess as heat ! . Perfectly normal apparently to run pretty warm on 3s !
