Hi!
I'v just got 3DX450 heli (Trex 450 aftermarket clone) and DX7 Tx. Still have some more electronics to order.

What is the experience with the Emax ESCs if any? Are they reliable? can't find reviews on them!
I am thinking of getting an Emax 60A ESC (good bargin $20 w/ programming card) for my 3DX450, is it suitable or is it too much current for this size?

Will be using 3s lipo and sonix brushless motor 3500KV.
So what do you think guys? I am a newbie

Emax 60A ESC specifications:
-Size: 56mm x 28mm x 18mm
-Weight (approximately): 45g
-Sustaining Voltage: (Li-ion/Li-poly: 7.4 - 18.5v)/(NiMh/Nicd: 6.25 - 18.75v)-Discharge Protection: optional
-Current (Continues): 60A
-Current (Burst >10 sec): 80A
-BEC Mode: Switch Mode
-BEC Output: 5v/3A
-User Programmable: Yes

Appreciate your prompt replies, thanks

I am not familiar with that ESC but if it fits, I say give it a try. That's a lot of ESC but if the specs match that of the stock unit with the only difference being in the amount of amps it can handle, go for it. Just as long as you have somewhere to mount it.

Thanks for the input Pyrock!

To avoid space problems I will go with a less current (hence smaller). There is an Emax 30A ESC which I might go for if I only find some positive reviews about Emax ESCs!

Besides Bob Finless said addressing my question: "It's overkill as a 40-45 amp ESC is the right size. If it is light great use it! If it's a big old heavy thing then might throw the heli out of balance or make it hard to get it balanced."
