Is Castle creations creating a 14s esc??
Does anyone know if CC is coming out with a esc that can handle 14s?

Don't know.

But if they did, would they employ "active" freewheeling?

16S and 20S controllers with active free-wheeling are in development.

No 14S specific controllers are planned.

thats great

but does that mean you can use you 12S to 16S or 20S, or the units are only 16S and only 20S?

The s ratings are a max voltage.

In development could mean years, are they working decent and coming soon or no date and buy something else for next season?

Castle_dog, as this is your first post on RR (?), what is the basis of your statement please?

How come the reasons generally quoted for CC not creating 14S all of a sudden seems to be overcome and 16S / 20S is being considered?

I'm not allowed to answer any more questions on this topic.

They are in development. I don't know for sure into which markets they will be released.

Sorry I can't answer any more specifically.

With todays Li-po's and motors there isn't any need for anything above 12s. If current is of concern for speed runs and hard 3D it would be far easier and cheaper to simply increase wire guage.60% of the time, it works every time!

I don't know if I agree with the above statement.

As power increases, current rises.

Power losses are always I^2R, so losses are related to the square of the current.

Increasing voltage is a better way to more power with higher efficiency.

That's why electric cars are all high voltage (300-500V.) The currents just get too large to effectively manage at lower voltages.

Yes but we are talking about the difference between 44.4v and 51.8v! Its just not worth the extra expense and lack of motor and battery options to me.60% of the time, it works every time!

Big difference when you go from 12s to 14s on a 800 size machine.

Just throwing it out there, but I notice that any 14s esc's are all made outside of the USA. Is there any federal regulations on voltage limits or power that is holding Castle Creations back?

Well 16.66% and apart from checking the ESC logs you can't tell.60% of the time, it works every time!

16.66% is the difference in voltage but you can't see or feel any difference in flight, the only thing you see is slightly lower current in the logs!60% of the time, it works every time!
