RC AIRCRAFT BUILDS Electric Powered Durafly Slow Poke Reply To: Durafly Slow Poke


Think I have found the issue with the Slow Poke Max Speed being lower than expected, the AeroStar 40A ESC is faulty.

Was doing a bit of testing today and it got far too hot to touch and the motor was running very rough.

I’ve installed a Turnigy Plush 30A esc and all seems to be running fine. WOT on the bench is 28Amps so I should be able to get away with the 30A instead of the 40A

I’ve put a warranty claim into HK as all except batteries is supposed to have 12 months warranty.

Next project will be the Super Chipmunk.
