Let's say you have a wrong setup, i.e wrong gearing etc then the esc should cut power to the motor, i mean most of us has probably experienced a cut(thermal) for different reasons (even on kontronik). but cause for fire no excuse!
Agreed, Most electronics will protect themselves first if they see a problem. If an ESC catches fire, it is WAYYYY too late at that point. Either it just was not designed to protect itself very well, or it had a catastrophic failure.........Ron

I've seen hobbywings on setups that makes me just shake my head but somehow they seem to hold up, just make sure to have a seperate bec if you run power hungry servo's or fbarless. Seriously though if you think about it the difference between a "normal" bec and kontronik is not that much, at least for us as we have to import and jive is a lot cheaper in UK than US for instance

Common sense may not be common after all

I still use Castle but I setup on the conservitive side ,it seems that whatever they use as a overload failsafe is not up to the job . I can shut down Kontronics but have yet to loose one and had to replace the cost is more but you only need to purchase once and will last to compinsate for cost

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)
