Hello,

The Stock ESC that was included in my Trex 500 kit has an output of 3amp continuous and 5amp burst is this enough for the 3 Futaba 9650's and a Futaba gyro? Also, the 10amp CC bec I bought for $25 has a max input voltage of 25v and my lipos are over that fully charged. The CC bec is rated 7amps @ 12v continuous and 5amps @ 24v continuous. I havn't yet installed it but was wondering if this is really necessary. I am using a dsm2 6200 rx. This stock setup without the cc bec has worked well so far.

Another question, are the cc's bec reliable?

Thanks.

i've been using one for 150+ flights no problems. Just proof test it first. hook it up, and load the servos a bit an load the control arms some and see if you have any early failures. Good procedure with ANY bec.

its not really needed. there have been very very few esc failures on the 500 and none that i recall were just internal bec faliures.

im not sure the cc bec is any higher quality then wht you have.

if you go with a external bec you want a known excellent one not one that is middle of the road so to speak.

im running that cheap hobbywing one on a 4s 450 but it crashes it doesnt hurt. on my 500 and 600 i run all stock.

the only one i may change is the 600 but that is only to get rid of the flight pac nothing more
