This is a very helpful site. Ya'all have allways taken time to answer my questions so thanks. I am more concerned about Kontronic. They frustrated me by not including a cable and heatsink in their Jive ESC. With the cost of the unit so high that surprised me. I understand it is not necessary and represents a savings to some though. But Kontronic certainly isn't trying to provide exceptional value.
It's crazy isn't it the difference now between the cheap stuff and the high quality european stuff. I swear my entire club has gone over to HK (the dark side) for everything, kinda creeps me out. I'm pretty sure you could put together the entire electronics/power suite for a Logo there for under $150. Yeah, I bought a couple of batteries from them, the label on the box described the contents as a plastic childrens toy with a value less than 10% what I paid. I'm not down with that either, somewhere in the middle would be good. But I can guarantee when I show up at the field with this heli someones going to notice the Jive and say "holy ---!" aren't those super expensive? How much did that cost? You must be nuts! And I will not tell them the heastink and cable were extra...
So Misfits, wasn't this your thread or somethin? Man I'm hogging it up this slow morning! So I got all my parts for the ESC last nite and ordered BLS451 servos too. Just starting the build now, This heli is so different from all the bearing block, CF helis I built last few years, it is cool looking and fun. Ah, party's over, I gotta go rebuild my fence now
