Does anyone know if there's an alternative esc for the fan? Or does anyone know how to hardwire an ESC to full throttle?

I have one that I got from common sense last year while I was thinking about pulling the mechanical fan off a K3D. Fan and Speed control, I think I paid $60 for the combo. I'm pretty sure a 10amp eflight controller would do fine.

I don't have a precise answer to the question. But I assume that you want more cooling. Where I am at, weather goes from 34° to 38° celsius so I use a separate 3S lipo for the fan. My 1st Odin has a stock ESC and my 2nd Odin has a hobbywing 12amp esc which is connected to an Aux ch of my rx. See diagram for further details. Please take note that the positive (red) wire from ESC to RX is not connected. I can control the fan via a 3 position switch on my tx.

Regie,

Are you using a Tx thats grater than 7 channels? I'm using a dx7 with an AR7100R.

I have it plugged in the throttle channel, but in order to arm the esc I have to reverse the throttle get the fan running then reverse the throttle again.

Is there a better solution?

All my aux channels are used

towertsk,

Yeah, I'm using a 9ch. Sorry I forgot to mention that you need more than 7ch to accomodate this setup. I assigned the esc to a 3 position switch. Off-50%-100% settings.
