Default What Fuse Size

I have an Electrifly T-600 motor, 8x4 folding prop with a 7.4 LiPo battery. I would like to know what size of fuse is required for this set up. Also, is there any guide lines published to establish proper fuse sizes? Thanks
George

Default RE: What Fuse Size

On the Electrifly web site, it says the following for the T-600 motor:
Performance specifications while turning an 8x4 propeller load w/8.4V input:
RPM: 11,340-11,820
Current: 21.4-23.1A
Power: 140 watts
Thrust: 17-19 oz.


Based on this, you'd probably want a 25A fuse.

I personally do not know anyone who fuses their electric power systems, but I see it is discussed in the T-600 instructions.
