My ice 80HV caught on fire after 3rd flight on new trex 600esp, 12s setup, on spool up. Trying to decide whether to use the replacement ice or switch to the jazz 80HV. Is the jazz worth the extra money?

I dont wanna chance another fire again. I was lucky enough to have a garden hose handy to put out the fire before major damage.

the governor on the jazz is simply amazing.. i personally believe it to be the best ESC on the market.. worth the $$.. i went for the 120HV on my logo600 with the expectation that i may want to stretch or go to a logo700 and have some headroom...

CC has excellent fast warranty service. They are good ESC’s and CC will get a new one right out to you. With 12s on a 600 80 amps is way more than adequate.

I have not had any experience with the Jive 80 HV but I have read that Align tested them and had some failures on their 700. The 700 draws a lot more current so they probably over amped them.

I have a jive on a scopion motor and a jive on the 700m motor, and the jive works better with the scorpion, on the 700m jive mode 10 doesn't run the same, timing sounds off, or misfire sound, after using the jive I don't think I would run anything else.

Good thing your heli didn't burn up, the jive might would have prevented a fire considering it will shutdown when it detects a problem.

I ordered the Jive 80HV last night and will hopefully get it tomorrow. I like the fact that it is easier to set up as well. I will sell the CC and CC BEC once I get the new ones back from CC.
