4in1 ESC question


#1

Probably a dumb question that I should know by now, but if one of my quad motors draws 8 amps at max throttle, can I safety use an 10 amp 4 in 1 ESC? The rating for a 4 in 1 is for each motor ESC not total current right?

If so have you guys tested any cheap, but durable 10A or greater 4 in 1 ESC with a JST connector (not really necessary because I could solder my own). My old one was 20A (overkill) was $32 so I’d prefer if I get a cheaper one.


#2

Yeah. The current rating is for individual ESCs. I believe there was a thread a week or two ago that was abt 10 ESCs

Found it-


There were a few good ones there


#3

That thread has only stacks and 16x16 escs. I guess I forgot to say that this is for my larger micro quadcopter with 20x20 spacing.

Are the racerstar ones any good?

Also, have you bought from Aliexpress. A lot of reviews say they cheat people and PayPal dispute doesn’t work, but some of their stuff is cheaper than banggood


#4

My bad. I have a list of some that I could use




I’ve used the kingkong one before, and it’s a champ

I have not bought from aliexpress, for the same reasons as you, but not sure how correct they are, and I tend to stay away from places that doesn’t accept PayPal and it’s benefits.

I have the hakrc, it survives spintech motors which is a good sign.
I think @las is using them on his 4s monsters too.

Thanks guys. Now I feel cheated spending $35 for my first 4in1 ESC haha! Live and learn I guess.

I’ll probably go with the KingKong one or the HakRC one since you guys have used it before and it’s held up.


#7

Just don’t be tempted by the eachine dark18a (if it’s even still around).
Las and I both got one.
Both are dead.

@Bobnova Thanks for the heads up!
