I have a Century 600A (1110kv) and a Turnigy 85A ESC. Will this ESC be ok on a Logo 10 w/ 500mm blades on 6s 4000 20C lipos? Also, is 20C ok for aggressive sport flying (not hard core 3D)?

I did a search on some OLD threads and seems like people were even using a CC HV45 on 6s back in the day and lots of Jazz 55/80's. Since I'm no hardcore 3D'er, I give the Turnigy 85A (100A bursts) a try. Is it me or does everyone over do it with the ESC ratings?

I have over 250 flights on a L10 stretched running 30c and 500s, runs very well. 20c? that may be a problem but only with the life of the battery.

I'd say in general, yes people over-do esc's. if geared properly, esc's are generally rated for the average current, not bursts. so lets say the average on my logo 600mm 12S is 30 amps, and i have short bursts to 70 amps, a castle hv 45 would do (and it does, thats what i'm running)

That said, when you spend a lot of money on a heli, you really don't want to run on the edge of a speed controller, so most people size them up a bit. I'm putting a ice hv 80 on mine just to give me some peace of mind, but also because i'm putting 660mm blades on it.

Anyone want to buy a heat sinked pheonix hv 45?
