Title: Jive 80 HV for 6S
Post by: Freeskiken on September 19, 2011, 09:01:10 PM
Hi, Does anyone know if the Kontronik 80HV will be OK for a 6S system. Some other people have said I should only use a 100LV on 6S. Thanks Ken

What helicopter and motor you are planing to use with that ESC?
On 550mm blades with 4025 motor - this ESC will work for mild 3D.
On 600mm with 4035 motor - it will be good for hovering only.

I ordered my Logo 500 last week but am now waiting for the 100LV to get back into stock. I will be swinging 553 Edge blades and upon some reliable advice will go with the 100LV :)

This is my setup now:

My T-Rex 600 FBL. With Castle 1717 Motor 1500 KV 4 Pole, 14 Tooth Pinion, KDE Mod.7 Main Gear 164 Tooth, CC Phoenix Ice 100 ESC, WR Super BEC, V Bar 5 Pro,6s 22.2 Volt 6000 mAh Nano-Tech Battery 25-50c, 3 - Align DS610 Cyclic Servos @ 6V, Futaba BLS254 Tail Servo, WR LED Tail Step Down 5.2 Volt.

I was planning to change the ESC to the Kontronik Jive 80HV but it sounds like I should get the 100LV.
