ohh well stupid me
well was having issues with t rex. power wise it was heating up and cutting power. i figured bad speed controler have align 35a esc so after pondering it and so many bad opinions about align esc issues. decided to order a jazz esc from all the searching it is the rolls of esc,s. anyways tonight decided to try to fly under powered t rex and see if could at least hover it something told me to check over pitch settings well i did ,and was shocked to find not getting enough pos pitch and i was overworking motor because of it. adj pitch to 9-0-9 and its a rocket,could have sworn i was setup at 9-0-9 so now i spent 170 unnedded $ on the jazz when i have a good align esc with medusa 2 amp 6 volt bec with heatsink mod done. what do you guys think sell the align esc and bec and install jazz or save jazz for when my align esc craps out on me... and yes i slapped myself in the head

If the money isn't an issue, keep the Jazz, best ESC money can buy. If the money is an issue, return it if you can.

Just remember, the Jazz's governor mode works, Align's sucks.

Also, the Align BEC is a linear regulator, it's going to run hot and isn't very efficient. The Jazz BEC is switched, much better.

Sounds good if you're using gov. on the jazz. You'll need a throttle curve if you're going to use the align esc. most are doing something around 100-90-85-90-100 for idle-up1, and 100-95-90-95-100 for idle-up2 (most i've seen). I run a 13t pinion instead of 11t though (around 3000-3100 headspeed).

Keep the Jazz and throw the Align ESC in trash. Getting Jazz likely brightest move you can make concerning equipment! Run Jazz in governor mode, 2 or 3 minute setup, then enjoy flying. Smoothest spoolup, great headspeed hold, regardless of the load.

Or you can use Align or CC ESC, with their inferior hot running BEC's, experience cutouts, buy parts, install firmware updates, and participate in R&D!
