Hey guys,

I have a YGE 160HV. I mount it with the three tabs, but all three tabs on the circuit board broke off in a crash recently (luckily the ESC still works). When I mount it now is it ok to put foam between the ESC and the frame and zip tie it down or should I just put the heat sink down and zip tie it like that?

Ive used thin servo tape and then a Velcro strap in the past with no issues, you'll find ty wraps become brittle in time.

That's a tough one then, anyway you can make a few standoffs using the heatsink screws.

Use Velcro to keep the ESC in one place
(like how you keep your batteries to a battery tray)

than use some velcro straps (kind w/o the plastic rings) to strap it down.
