This will be a 6S 600 class scale ship. The bulk of my ESC knowledge is that CCs are prone to burning up. Any recommendations?

Maybe the best is a Kontronik Jive 80 HV.

I have used the CC 160 and 120 without any problems.

Actually if you are only going to use 6S, then the Jive 100+ LV is a better choise and less expensive.

The Scorpion Series 130amp OPTO HV ESC is also a safe choise.

The Kontronik brand has proven itself to be extremely reliable no matter which model you choose.

Good stuff. I'm just ribbing the Castles a bit. I actually use an Icelite 75 in an EDF, but this isn't the place to talk about those silly things.

I'm going to convert a Raptor 50 to an e620, run a 780kV motor on 6S, and wrap it in a Jet Ranger fuse.

I ended up with a Castle 80HV. I like it.

Great. Thanks for the update.

Please let us know what kind of temps you are running, esp. since its inside a scale fuse.

For sure. I'm still working on the fuse, so for now I'm just skittering about with bare mechanics.

What I can tell you is that I'm pulling about 20A max with only the mechs and scale flying. Esc and motor are only warmer than ambient.

I'll keep the thread updated.
