Long story short, I bought a used Furion6 helicpoter - 10S set up. After rebuilding and going through all of the electronics, I found the HW120HV ESC does not put out any power. I removed the vbar and BEC and ran power directly to the ESC, and still nada, no power output measured on a multi meter.

I need to buy another ESC. I want to use the vabr governor feature. I am not opposed to another HW ESC. The only issue I have is that they are very large.

Options are (in no specific order):
1. Megapower 120HV opti - again huge, especially with built in fan
2. HW 120 HV
3. YGE 90HV
4. Jive 80HV - too much money, cannot afford right now
5. CC Ice v2 80HV - a little nervous base on history

Please give me some advice and direction.

Is there an up to date list of compatible ESC's that work with the vbar's governor?

Castle Creations has new firmware that works great. It’s still in beta but should be released to the public this week or next.

The main reason that some don’t work well in input signal filtering. The expensive ESCs have digital filtering to eliminate noise and out of range signals. They think that the rapidly changing input from some governors is just noise. The cheap ESCs don’t have filtering that’s why they work. It’s just a matter of adding a firmware filtering option to the firmware that will pass rapidly changing input signals.

YGE, KONTRONIK heliJive, Hobbywing/Turnigy KForce, Robbe/MegaPower/Hawk, are the ones I would use. I use two Mega Powers now.

I think Scorpion is about to release a new HV ESC that works with the Vbar.
