T-REX 500 › Will Kontronik Jive HV escs work with my Kontronik Minipyro 20-08?

The manual recommends Jive 60 LV, 80 LV or 100 LV.

I tried using my old Jazz 55-6-18 but the esc shutdown after 5secs of spoolup and was burning hot.

Anyone knows if the Jive HV series of escs will work? Im scared they are not compatible.

Im flying Trex 500 running 6S. Thanks.

Your Jazz 55 should do a lot better than that. Sounds like you have a motor problem and it might be a waist of money to buy a Jive.

First try another motor (stock motor would be good for a test) with your Jazz 55 and see how hot the ESC runs.

Thanks for your reply. My LHS didnt have the Jive 80 HV, so I settled for the Jive 80 LV. To my horror, when I tried to spool up, blades spun only very slowly, like 100rpm. I tried all the settings on my program card II but to no avail. Finally after wrecking my brain, I decided to swap around a few battery packs, the beast finally woke up! It seems that my old Turnigy 2650mah 6S 30C packs with about 40cycles on them cant power up the Minipyro. Hence the spooling up was stuck in some low voltage slowdown mode. Even though the volts seem ok and had no problems with my old align 500L motor.

How does it fly? Can you please tell us something more about this motor+esc setup?

I am currently building a new 500 ESP and I also have the JIVE 80+ LV and MINIPYRO. By the way, check out this link... (it is in German, but just to give you an idea)

Awesome combo. But sadly my jive has died after about 100 flights. It gives my error codes and refuses to spool up. I have sent it back to kontronik.
