settings for what the esc if so helis settings for esc is peretty much the same brake =off soft start=on and whatever setting for the bat that you are running. But you might want to read some of the treads on complications with the DX radios and the creation esc seams there might be a glitch problem not sure but something you should look in to

Thermal Shutdown
I had a thermal shutdown with the ESC on my B400 last night at an indoor fly. Fortunately, I was in hover 4 ft high, so it was an easy auto. Actually happened twice. After the first one, it spooled up, so I tried it again and about 30 sec. later, it shut off again. This was the 4th battery pack of the evening and the ESC was not warm after the first 3 packs. All packs were run until I started to lose power in hover, except for the last pack that I only got about 3 minutes from before the ESC shutoff.

I was thinking about going the BEC route because I have a 401 gyro and a DS3400G on the tail. Plus, I have DSP75 servos on the CCPM, so the power requirements for the built in ESC BEC may be too much.

I called Horizon and they are sending a new ESC. I am considering getting the Phoenix 35 speed control and a BEC anyway.

Specifics:
Pack 1 Parkzone 3S1P 1800 15C, used to check setup, blade tracking, etc.
Pack2 & 3: E-Flite 3S1P 1800 20C, stock battery
Pack 4: Thunder Power 3S1P 2100 15C

Also, I had a chance at lunch today to run the TP 2100 pack out. I got another 3-4 minutes of hovering and the ESC did not get warm at all. Anyone else have something similar happen?

RE : Blade 400 3D ESC ADVICE ! !
hey buddie all i did was re allocate the ESC ...since .... mine was over heating as well .... i just tie strapped it to the side .... i will upload the pics of it shortly ..... so when i am flyin the rotor wash and fast foward flight will cool the esc...., even though mine still gets warm .. it's temps are alot cooler now this way and i've got no problems... I can do advanced 3-D and I am running a 11 tooth pinion ...Trex carbon fiber paddles, Carbon Trex Tail blades a Gy 401 with an S3154 Tails servo & Radix 325 blades...
