New ESC!

Kontronik Kosmik 160hv
 
I recently got myself a KDE 700XF motor. According to reports from pilots all over the world this motor really rings the bells. Huge amount of power! The only real down side is that it requires a big ESC. The peaks from this motor is quite high, partly because it got delta winding, so a 160A ESC or bigger is preferred. I like the fact that the interal bec is up to 8v output. Now we can use HV servos with the internal kontronik bec. I read about some issues between this ESC and the KDE motor but it seems to work fine if you use software version 3.1 and then sets the timing to 15 degrees. This esc and motor combined with my Gens Ace packs should result in a great power machine!
