RR Guys,

I have a Align Stock ESC on my 500 heli running a 6S 2650 battery.

Question:
I have a spare Castle ICE Edition 75Amp Esc laying around. Can I use this controller for my 500?

Reason: The heli is acting kind of odd when I am in normal mode. Sometimes when Im hovering its like the power jumps around a little. Once it was like the heli was dying with power all together and it just dropped to the ground real fast. But when Im in idle up, everything is fine.

Wonder: if I should try to hook up this Castle Ice 75 and give that a go?

Do you think its the Esc?

The Ice 75 is a great esc for the 500 but I would also check that the one way bearing is not slipping in the main gear as this will make the heli act like you have described.

and the blonde said "RECTUM, Hell damn near killed em!!"
