The reason is no matter how strong the BEC is if it could do 100A Cont. with just one lead going to the RX/FBL system you can NOT hold the load. NO WAY.

This is why YGE and Kontronik and etc all have a Master and a Slave lead so that two leads can get enough power to hold the load.

Western Robotics BEC's and all, everything uses 2 leads.

Castle needs to wake up. This would not have cost hardly a dime to add.

i've read in many dif places by many dif people that the most amperage that most servo type connector should be asked to carry is around 5 amps each and that the limiting factor is not the wire size (though not all wire is created equal) but the small area of contact in the connector itself that limits it......

Not totally true. The wire itself big limiter. Yes those small contacts aren't helping but take some EC5's and solder up some 22 guage wire to make you a set of charge leads. Charge your packs and see how long it takes for wire to melt. If u charge a 2s pack at 10a the rating castle says this will do, see how long it takes to fail. Under a few seconds. True servos draw loads in millisecond bursts, but bottom line is 1 lead is very inferior design.

What Castle obviously needs to do is to simply hire YOU as the company Buddha, then they wouldn't make all the obvious, simplistic errors they do in the absence of your omnipotent presence. Just think, then they would be a success !!!!
Castles always being lit up by the critics who think Kontroniks,etc,(what they have, don't you know? )are the only thing to own,and who bombard us with all the minutia of their "scientific" knowledge on why Castles are junk.
BS.
Castle sells a ton of ESC's, and a ton of them to people who are not on their first Castle ESC, maybe even their 10th or more.Like me.
The constant nit picking is getting tiresome. They did have a couple bumps in the road, but they backed them better than most any company has done in this hobby.
Go get Kontronik on the phone to spend a half hour with you to help find something that's your fault. Good luck.
So I've got an idea-If there's a post about a new Castle and you'll never buy one anyway why not just post all your wisdom somewhere else ?
By the way..I have a few Castles,and a couple Kontroniks,and even...gasp ! an E-Flite ....They've all been good to me.
Oh: In the Kontronik paperwork it mentions their service department,how to ship it to Germany, ok an estimate to 100 bucks up front, etc. Why DO they have a service department ?
Because they have has motors and ESC's fail. How about that ?.

You missed the point...

Can you push more load through 2 leads or 1? Everyone knows the answer.

This not about K. WR BEC has 2 leads. Castle BEC does for crying out loud.

Currently all I own is YGE. It has 2.

This not about service it about improving product. With 2 leads the talon could pretty much provide what castle rates it at.

If u want to talk quality and support we can take turns posting vids if castles busting into flames. We don't go there.

I just said I wish it had 2 leads for BEC. It should. It is a simple oversight. They did on their own BEC.

Well someone keeps them in business anyhow. Recognizing shortfalls doesent take an engineer or genius just common sense. Depends what ya want what you fly and how you fly, much of it does.

I purchased one of these and have it installed in on an vintage airplane.

Only two flights, so far, but it barely gets warm.

I agree with those who have stated that there is a limitation with the amount of current that one, servo type plug can handle.

I have spoken to both Castle and Duralite on the subject, in the past. Depending on which one you talk to, one of the servo connectors can support, at most, six amps.

Castle technical people instructed me to install a second plug on their original 10 amp BEC, if I was going to need more than five amps out of it-this was for a 550 sized helicopter.

They also told me that this was the reason why the CC Pro BEC had two plugs on it.

If I put one of these on a large helicopter (and I like the one I have in the airplane), I will be adding the second plug to it, regardless of any potential warrantee issues I may cause myself.
