Phoenix esc, ICE 75 Amp or ICE 50 Amp??
Hello guys,

I would like to put a CC ICE esc on my T500 6S, with scorpion.

Is the 50 amps enought or do I need to go with the 75 Amps?

I fly soft 3D at the moment and will try to go Harder (if I can...)

Thanks for your help.

Rgds.

You need more than 50 at 6s. I use a 60amp unit and occasionally get peaks above that. Go with the 75.Dr.Don

ICE 50 is plenty
I have about 80 flights on an ICE 50 in my T500. Most don’t realize that the ICE 50 has a 90 amp peak limit and a built in current limiter so I don’t see how you would ever burn it out. The data logger shows lots of peaks over 80 and it never gets warn.

Castle Creations tends to be conservative with ratings (as is Kontronik) while some Asian ESC’s have an inflated rating. You really have to use different standards when selecting different brands of ESC’s.

I looked at the 75 but it is a very big ESC (same size as the 100) with 10-gauge wire. I really don’t that’s necessary.

The ICE comes with a coupon for a free Castle Link. You just punch the number in their web sight and it arrives in the mail in about a week. The free one does not come with a USB cable. If you buy one it has a USB cable included.

What kind of difference did you see in flight between the ICE and stock Align esc?

I have never owned an Align ESC. I get a bare kit and added my own motor and ESC.

The main advantage of the ICE is that it has a fantastic governor and a data logger that really helps you fine tune your setup. Going from 100% throttle curves to governor does help flight time because you are not wasting energy you only get power when you need it.
