        • hey - the only ESC that has reversing on the parts page is the 6S 100amp (for 80mm). Evan said in a previous post that the new 90mm planes are supplied with a larger 120amp reversing ESC... but its not for sale separately - will it be for sale in the future?

          • Not sure about your search skills. I see it listed under the F-22, F-4, Zeus, Eurofighter and F/A-18C... For some it's listed in both 6S and 8S versions and for some multiple paint schemes. Looks like it's out of stock though.

                        Thanks Evan, I was looking under Power/Electronic Speed Controls/Airplane and Heli ESCs and then sorted to show only ones more than 100A - and this one is NOT listed there. (There are 33 total) For some reason Motion doesn't seems to list all of the ESCs in the ESC section. Isn't it odd, these two seem identical but have two different part numbers. They can both handle 3S - 8S apparently. Anyway thanks a lot for posting the links....

                          • With regards to all this.. I did a calculation.. 2 actually.. 4.2 volts×6s × 1835 KV.... And same calculation for 8s. 1350 KV. .. I was surprised to see. That the 6s was around 1000 rpm more total.. so will that 120 amp esc still b good for the 6s. Or should I put in the 125 gecho I have

                                • That's funny, Loch. I had this old begruzzled drunk for a 1st Class Petty Officer on board my aircraft carrier. He'd tell us all these stories about weather conditions on this trip or that ship during those days. Every story ended with, "...and then it got worse!"
