It is always best to put the esc in the ducting, and since you are using the CC60, you will have no problems with the BEC. SHould be good flyier on that set up.

Oh great are the days when my takeoffs equal my landings!!!

Thanks Spar. I'm really looking forward to flying it. I noticed your avatar is a CT-114 in Snowbird colors. I'm trying to get a set of plans or better still, a kit for EDF. Any ideas on that?
Thanks again.

Putting the ESC is not really "always a good idea". But everything in life involves trade offs. On your F18 putting the ESC in behind the motor will increase the length of battery leads to the ESC. This is a bad thing. Though you will no doubt get away with it. As I found out the hard way some times you won't. If you look closely at your pack you may find the leads run down the side of the pack under the shrink wrap. Carefully removing the wrap you can free up a large chunk of cable with out having to add on elswhere. You should re wrap the pack to help avoid punctures. Be carefull as this mod does run the risk of shorting the terminals on the pack or breaking the terminals off amoung other things.

Though I hate to send people away from the forum. You owe it to your wallet to read through this thread. Make notes. Come to your own decisions on whats the best route for you.


Start at the begining.
