What size UBEC should I purchased for this 70 amp ESC OPTO . Also I would like to make a comment to Hobby King. To Make the Customer experience more pleasant. You think you could add in your write-up just above the specs ITEMS NEEDED, which would include, batteries, motors, props, etc., this would minimize customer confusion increase your sales/ profits. It takes (30 days) to receive the product then to find out it does not work is a little frustrating. Now I have to decide, do I purchase from your company hopefully buy the correct part so that the UBEC is compatible with this BEC Optp and wait 30 days or do I go to another Company that can deliver in 5-7 days. What would you do?

Bought a Birdie 60A Brushless ESC (Opto) followed the instructions and it does not work. While battery plugged in the received light does NOT light up ( blinking ) witch is the OrangeRx R615X Spektrum/JR DSM2/DSMX Compatible 6Ch 2.4GHz Receiver w/CPPM. When Battery is plugged in receiver NOT blinking and it BEEPS 10 times then stops Beeping, then BEEPS again 10 times, ect. I cant bind the received to the transmitter and does not work . Replaced with a 30 amp ESC and it works fine, it's the ESC that is Bad. Do you have a fix for this? NTM Prop Drive 28-36 2700KV / 595W motor. Is there a fix for this ?

I tried to birdie 70A opto esc, and I have tried esc by using ubec or external battery connected to the motor as well as the rx, but the results did not beep at all when connected 3s lipo. is there any solution for me. thanks

You have to plug the ESC into a battery, motor and RX. Plug it into the "Throttle" port of your RX and then use a separate battery to power your RX through a UBEC.

Hi I tried to connect this esc with an orange 6 channel rx, but rx seems not to get power when connecting esc with a 3s 1800 lipo (rx control light not on). instead esc has a three beep tone repeating 10 times. Rx works fine with other esc (20A). Any ideas how I get this to work? Thanks

This ESC does NOT have a built in BEC (opto) so it will not power the reciever. You need a seperate BEC to power the reciever.

Running 6 cell 3300 at 53 amps on a Tacon Bigfoot 32 with a 10"x10" APCE. The plane has lots of cooling and the Birdie 60 comes down barely warm at 1200 watts. Manually set the voltage cutoff and brake. Would buy another without a second thought.

Nelle specifiche è scritto da 2 a 6 celle quello che è arrivato a me con tre celle non funziona e non c'è la possibilità di scegliere le due celle.
