Default Anyone using the combination Futaba MC9100A and Hacker C50-14

Hi,

Anyone using the combination Futaba MC9100A and Hacker C50-14? I will be glad to learn about the settings used for this combination.

Hi Dag
I use the same settings on the Os/Futaba as I had on the Castel, this was with Himax 210...so I think you can use tha same as on your Spinn, but the brake force on the Futaba was not so strong, 30 % on castel was about 60 % on Futaba

I am still looking for more information on the C50 14XL and OS/Futaba ESC.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10..._1/key_/tm.htm

Based on the thread above, PWM has been factory set to 32Khz which can't not be changed. Not sure how C50-14XL will react to this. Better call Aero-Model on Tuesday. If no good, I will just return the ESC & programmer.

Weird way of building the ESC without PWM adjustment.

From the 5min searching I just did, it sounds like PWM settings are really more about the ESC than the motor; motors should be able to handle higher PWM rates. Typically the higher PWM will give better motor performance but generate more heat in the ESC. If this ESC is set to 32khz, it can probably handle it and thus runs pretty efficiently. I don't know a whole lot on the subject though so it's worth some more investigating.
