Hi all.

I'm due to get my 3G for my 500 this week. I can't find much technical specs on this unit.... I'm using the standard Align 60A ESC. I think the BEC is rated at 3A constant.

My question: Would the BEC endure 3* 510 , 1 * 520 , the Rx and the 3G without browning out on me? Perhaps I'm just paranoid... I'm doing some hard 3D for about 5min per flight.

I've also got no real "insider secret" info regarding the setup.

I've heard that the black dampers in the T-piece should be replaced with the grey ones. Any additional recommended tricks? There's a huge amount of info on this forum, but I don't really know where to start..

HHH

No problems with the stock ESC and 3G unit here. I have about 30 flights across my 2 remaining 500ESP/3G birds (sold one to fund a new 600LE). I can beat on it a little, but Ricardo Maldonado (JR-ric) has whipped on both birds like they owed him money.
Ran stock dampers and configured throws at max recommended in setup guide. Running 3300mah 30C Blue Lipo packs and can beat the crap out of the bird for about 6-1/2 minutes.
Running AR6200 in both and no issues with brown out at all.
