Hi all, just finished building up my HK500 cmt tt and even after reading lots of bad reviews about the Turnigy Brushless ESC 85A w/ 5A SBEC, I still used it in my heli thinking........mine will be fine.
Alas, 3 minutes into the maiden hover it decided to quit, with loss of servos and gyro control but motor at 80 pc.    Not nice, more parts coming.
I have decided to try the Helidrive 100amp esc, so if anybody has used this esc, I would appreciate your views on it before I get back in the air.

BTW, the problem with the 85A w/ 5A SBEC turned out to be one of the legs on a component, which looks like it may be a resistive winding, had broken off or maybe not soldered correctly.
The component is roughly 6mm square, and has 6R8 stamped on the top.
Might be worth checking if you have that Turnigy ESC.
