I have heard that the internal BEC on the Ice 100 is not reliable on anything over 425mm bladed helis. I'd like to run this ESC/BEC on a 520mm bladed heli - I'd just prefer not to use an external BEC if I can get away with it. I'll be using vbar and BLS451's/251 in a Gaui X5 at 2500-2600 headspeed. I do sport and smooth 3d - I'm not a stick banger, so I won't be thrashing the thing all over the place if that makes a difference.

I'd really like to hear from someone who has had the Ice 100's internal bec fail rather than the more common "I heard it sucks" crowd (no offense).

Thanks!

its seems like i've heard of alot of people using the internal bec on the trex 550 FBL with ds610/650 with success. i'd imagine that you would be well within the limits if your not slamming tic tocs all flight long

Who cares... its just money...

I owned an Ice100, that crashed my Compass 600e, a few seconds in the second pack, then the bec died....

I sent the esc back to CC, which they replaced with a new unit.

I then sold the new esc (ICE100) to a buddy, it lasted approx 6 packs, before the bec also failed in a roll (ironically)..
Needless to say, both cases used the BEC, and both helis are NO MORE.

The Ice 100 is a great esc, but rather use a Li-Fe/Po pack for bec.

Concentrate on your weaknesses and your strengths will reward you!

internal bec on ice 100 will work fine depending on type of servos, 8717's and align 610's and servos with similar speed and torque will need an external bec, I flew the Ice 100 with 9452's with no problems at all.
