Don't know the answer to your question, but please turn off the caps lock. It is considered shouting on here. Makes it hard to read too.Dr.Don

With the jumper on it should be 5 volts, jumper off 6 volts. Take a voltage reading to be sure.

Well you could of bought the CC ESC to go with the CC UBEC. CC UBEC is programmable in tenth of a volt incriments from around 4.8 - 9V.

With the $20 castle link cable and software of course.

brettman, I am currently using the Eflite 25 amp ESC on my King 3 without a separate BEC. It is marginal at best on the Blade 400 but works very well on the lighter King. I push the thing and it barely gets warm. I wouldn't pay full price for one but got a "slightly used" one on Ebay for 20 bux and am very happy with it.
THERE ARE THREE PINS ,DO YOU PULL IT OUT AND PUT IT BACK ON THE OTHER PIN TO GET THE 6V?
Yes.

should be alright no guarantees though I'm not sure if the Eflite 25 amp and 20 amp have the same BEC. Most lil plankers have three or four servos and no gyro--- most heli's have 4 servo's AND a gyro making the BEC work pretty hard. I used to run a separate BEC back in the day, its good insurance against mid-air burn-ups and strange anomolies !!!!!!

i'm gonna give it a try the bullet ends on the motor are smaller than the female ones on the esc so ill have to put bigger ends on the motor wires

on second thought im gonna wait and get a 35 amp esc so i can play with different motors at a later date.TO DO ALL THE SOLDIERING AND MAYBE BURN OUT THE 20 AMP ESC IM GONNA PLAY IT SAFE FOR ONCE

rce-blg35 yes it is align!!

It will run fine with the internal BEC.

But you can get them fairly cheap $50/new they are worth it. They had the problems many others did with the BEC but fixed them. Dang near bullet proof now. And you wont have to worry much at 35amp. I used mine in a TREX450 it lasted longer than the TREX it found a new home in a super t-28 trojan. Had to reprogram with the move stick up down and back crap for a plane though.
