I was just wondering if there are any Known compatibility issues with Kontroniks ESCs and name brand motors?

I thought I remembering hearing that the KDE stuff had issue, does this issue encompass the Castle line-up too?

What symptoms would manifest?

Would the ESC just not arm, or have start issues?

Does the newer firmware of the Koby eliminate the issue?

Steve Neu Motos is all I know of. Outside of those, have at it. They are really low inductance and Jives sometimes have a problem starting them.

I had 2 different Neu motors.. a 1910 and a 1907 on Jives and no problems with either. Maybe I was just lucky. Some have had problems with Delta wound Scorpion 4525le motors. Had this combo to, but no problems.

A friends koby 90LV went up in flames when he tried a Viper motor on his 550.

60% of the time, it works every time!

if you use kde or neu, run the ksa mode and i think you'll be fine.

Q. What is KSA mode?

A. KSA Mode is the KONTRONIK Special Application mode that is used if you are running a Hacker Electric Turbine motor. The KSA Mode (mode 10) switches the internal algorithm to run Hacker Turbines properly.

They run perfectly fine Neu motors I have 3 of them with Jive and the only time I had problems was with a shorted winding.

The Jive just refused to turn that motor. Steeve Neu repaired it and it run perfectly fine after the free rewind.

Jive make a check on motor condition before starting.
If the inductance is too low or too high for it's capabilities it don't start it and give a warning with it's LED.

I have run into this trying running unconventional motors like a big hub motor for small personal transport.

It seem that some peoples have problems running the kde 1917 but mine run just fine.

You must have perfect soldered connectors.

I strongly recommend that ESC your motor will have more power and it is the easiest esc to program that I tried.

Have awesome flights !
