I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

John,

All mine are just tie wraped to the motor cage normaly with a small foam pad underneath, the "should" be no vibration from an electric model so no real need to wrap up in foam,

If you are on 35meg I would get it as far away from the RX as possible so just on the motor cage works well for this and for cooling

Cheers

What Mark said!

Basic rules of installation are:

1. Keep as far aaway from the receive (and aerial!) as physically possible.
2. Support the main body of the ESC so there is little or (ideally) no strain on any of the wires.
3. It is advisable to position the ESC in such a fashion that there is an airflow over it, or a large volume of air surrounding it. This will help keep it nice and cool, and make sure it gives you years of good service Smile Mounting it in the cowl area is a good idea.

I wouldn't wrap the entire ESC in foam though, that would be like wrapping it in a nice insulating blanket, and could lead to heat build up, and all the problems that occur when things get too hot. I start to act all sleepy when too hot, but I can't say for sure if an ESC would do the same Shocked

Oooh, one worthwhile tip, which is sort of related, it is REALLY important to do a decent range check on an electric model. It is the ONLY way to pick up any problems that may be installation related. I have had several models that have been fine at a few paces range, but once out past 100 feet or so, the model goes berserk. Re-routing the aerial and moving the ESC sorted it out (this was in the pre 2.4GHz days Smile )

Hope that helps!

I can vouch for Mark being a particularly complete test of an airframes integrity Smile Just make sure you bring a spare prop Laughing

Finished the Fury and Sam has had a few good flights....he's begining to trust me...he lets me carry it!

Problem....weve been flying from a private field,while flying at about 100ft away the servos start juddering,so come into land.Bringing it back home it is impossible to simulate the same conditions.Weve had aerial down walked a good 40 m away and not a sign of any judder.As Advised the Rx is at max distance from esc,aerial nowhere near Rx any suggestions ?
