If I use a jazz kontronic, 80-6-18 on my stock align 550 3G, will it be ok?
I have one doing nothing, and they are one of the best, just to make sure I won't blow it...

The Jazz 80-6-18 is probably better suited to a Trex 500, especially due to the BEC which is better suited for mini servos.

Well, guys were flying Trex 600's with Kontronik Jazz 80-6-18's a couple of years ago, but they needed to use big heat sinks to make it work without overamping. So I guess it might work OK on a Trex 550 so long as you don't have giant servos (i.e. JR 8717's) and a giant motor (i.e. Scorpion 4025-1100). However a larger ESC with a bigger BEC would certainly be better.

Thanks for the replies, but it crashed after 2 min flight, jyst went crazy...
Tried again, believe it or not first crash, no damage except the main gear...
Crashed again, it did the same both time, started to pirouette real fast!
Did a test,static and the servos goes wild after 30 second. It wasworking perfect on my 500, so I guess there is something too much for this esc
