Trex 450 Pro Stock Align ESC issue.
Hi,

Today, After the stock ESC on my Trex 450 Pro initiatized, i moved the wires to put the canopy and the ESC rebooted. It happened again the next flight and again three times. So i thought it may be loose solder on the deans and stripped the heat shrink to check, and to my surprise solder is OK and also are the motor/ESC connections.

After that i plugged and unplugged the battery to the esc and moved the wires to recreate it but couldnt. I am totally confused if the ESC is bad.

BTW, this is my third align esc on this heli, first one started smoking after one flght, second one quit after like 10 flight no reason, this third one was oK for around 50 flights.

I am running all stock electronics with Beast X flybarless.

Any idea what it could be? and also can you guys recommend a good ESC for 450 Pro?

Thanks

well how deep are your pockets?
Only one that still fits under the battery tray and worth getting is a KONRONIK JIVE. But i think its $150+ price. (don't quote me on the price) There are other options if you want to place in on the side. Like Castel Phoenix Ice Lite 50 still is about $100 bucks.

I must be a lucky one. Over 50 flights on my 450 Pro with no issues with either the motor, speed controller, Align servos, and 3G unit. I'm only a "sport flier, with gentle maneuvers, so I don't but much stress on my helis.Gerry Cullan,

Jive is too expensive, doesnt make sense putting a $300 ESC on a $300 heli

How much is a CC Ice 50? and which is the best place to buy it from?

thanks

It’s Perfect!

I get them from Tower Hobbies – they are always having some discount coupons that really help lower the price.

You may be able to sneak it in. But would be easier on side of heli out in the airflow.Jim Senicka

I am also in the market for a new ESC since I sold my Align 35 today

There is no way the ICE 50 will fit under the tray But it looks like the ICE 50 lite may. Or maybe the Phoenix 35 may. Anybody done either of these? I do not want it on the outside of the frames.

I just ordered ICE 50, heat sink version. Can some one please post pics of how they mounted it on their 450 pros?

I do not want to spend another $30-$40 to get KDE battery tray mod.

thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

It happened again, i have resoldered deans as well as the ESC bullet connectors, it was oK for little while and it again pulsed while taking off and totally shut down, lucky was only inches from ground.

When i reconnected the battery it initializes OK, Is the ESC acting funny?

I will be replacing the ESC, but not sure what the issue is.

BTW, its Align ESC.

thanks

Ice 50 light fit well.
But 3S might be a heat issue. (airflow)
6S will be no problem.
