Stan, I run Set RPM mode. ESC is at 91% at 1200rpm, so right in the sweet spot. I do run a fan on the ESC due to the very tight closed cockpit of the Cobra (almost no airflow) but temps have never been "hot".

Interesting...

Steve, I am going to put mine back on the table when I get back home later and will check my settings.. (I've set up 4 helis over the weekend!!) and will get back to you...
Is your gearing the 13.845??
At 91% the ESC is as Happy as it gets!!
Something seems different.. I am also at 16.8 lbs AUW, just to get a comparison..

How is that primer coming?? No Hysol to watch set up... guess primer will have to do...

Doorman, yes, I am using "set rpm" and governor mode. I entered all the necessary information as well i.e. Motor pole count, gear ratio, etc.

Had To Look!!

Guess I will be a bit late!!

I had some mixed info but here is what I found.

The motor I am using is 500kv 10p gearing is 13.845, 12s

The lowest hs is 1050 withing the range and up to 1365 highest.

So if you are running in those ranges you should be good on your ESC.. CC recommends that you be above 75% for everything to be happy..To go any lower you would need to start changing things...

Sorry for any mis-info...

Yep same gearing. Difference is probably motor kV. I havent weighed mine, but I would guess I am at a similar weight as you.

No more hysol, at least not until the next build! LOL!
