you should be right, but if u want blade-stomping performance, then either the ESC will cutout, or u might get glitches.

if you want to cruise around in a controlled manner with a 'V' curve, then it should be fine

But if ur going for performance, then a CastleCreations, Quark33A, or other High-End brand will be required.

Now what assumption allows you to make this claim? you obviously havent used this particular speed controller.

i would say go for it. you dont seem like your after "blade stomping performance" and that controller should suit you just fine if the price is right.

just remember, a CC35 is very inexpensive and is also a very very good controller based on price point. i would take a serious look at it.

I've seen 3 of that ESC in action at our field, in 3 different Protech Zoom 450 helicopters. They all were operated with FP 20C 2150 mah packs and Protechs own brand motor, equivalent to Align 430L, if not even more powerful. They pulled 350 mm wooden blades. It seems to be very reliable, not a single low voltage cut-outs during some loading maneuvers. I am so far more impressed of it's behaviur compared to my Align 35G ESC.

OK, Nightstalker,

£36 QUID, that is £20 quid cheaper than the CC35, which is well supported here and the Firmware can be updated by the user.

I have had the Align ESC's and i personally think there hit and miss, and support for them in the UK, is non-existent.

The Castle Creations ESC's are very good, and i have yet to have a problem with any of the five I've owned, other than some earlier governor issues. which have since been sorted via updates (free).

I think that with some of the (territorial issues) associated with these somewhat temperamental 400 class electric heli's.
That a £20 saving is risky, unless you can find sustained proof that the Protech unit is suitable..

Voiced from my own experience.

I am a certified blade stomper, and find the stock Align controllers work fine!
