Micro Tundra Flies with the 1306 ( Butt )

Micro Tundra with a 1306 (5 min 19 sec)

There is that butt again !
The entire project has been one step forward and two steps back , and so it continues .

I was really afraid the ESC was a dogs breakfast .
The 1106 was really happy with the 6030 and pulling less than 4A ( Gemfan 6030 @ 3.8Amp )
On the test stand the 1306 pulled 5.5A , and in the Tundra 4.5A .. That is a full AMP down .
So I threw a 6040 on the MT and saw 5.8A and then the ESC died .... ( UPDATE = 1306 is dead ) ESC is ?

Well I was planning a ESC swap , now I have no choice .

I would recommend that anyone with a MT try a 6030 and see if they can be happy with that .

Rain and very strong winds up here today, so my test may have to wait until tomorrow.

Since your 6A esc is toast, I might just change mine to a 10A now before I cook mine too.

ESC = I dont know !
It did how ever kill the 1306 @ 5.8A
I have put the 1106 back ..
And on the new ESC ( 10A or 12A ) it is pulling 4.2A on the 6030 , thats up from 3.8A .
I will test the ESC and hopefully not toast another motor doing so

Update !
I soldered up the MT 6A ESC , and it has the audacity to still be working .
The 1306 is dead .
The 1106 is back in the plane and will be test flow to see if 4.2A makes a difference .
