Question

Typhoon EDF 2W motor Castle Creation 60 amp ESC how to set it up?


Hi i'm just in the process of making an X-Flight A7 Corsair EDF,the set i'm using is as in the title with a 68mm fan.My 1st attempt at an EDF was a Greenairdesign F104 which flew but my engine kept cutting out in flight.I know that EDFs draw more current than prop driven models.What i want to know is with the CC ESC what features do i disable? Also the lipo i will use is a Flight Power 25 3S1P 1800 mah 11.1V battery will this give me a good flight time with mix throttle?

Take your setup and run it on a wattmeter.

Most likely you are asking to much for a 1800mah lipo, you should
really be in the 3300mah+ range with 15-20C lipos.

As Bryan says - your amp draw is likely to be waaaay more than that pack can deliver. I just found some data for the 2W with a Wemotech Mini 480 EDF, which indicated 45A using a 3200 20C pack - and even then the pack voltage dropped to 9.8v after only 30 seconds.
