Default Castle Creations Phoenix 110HV

hi all,

can anyone let me know where I can get hold of a castle creations Phoenix HV110 speed controller? All the sites I've looked on so far only list up to the HV85 (with the exception of tower and whilst there's nothing at all wrong with tower it would be nice to get all the gear from one supplier...) The HV85 would probably be enough but the 110 would give a better margin.

cheers,

James

I'm simply going to mention a fact of my experience:

I have never heard anyone report that the HV85 is not big enough for a pattern plane.

Thanks Graham. I'm really looking for a stateside supplier, but it's always good to keep an eye on the UK distributors too. It will probably be going into an OTOP, not 100% sure yet but that's the current plan.

Adam, you are right and the more I look at it the more I realise that. The extra $$ for the 110 would not concern me, but it is also over 1oz heavier. I think now on reflection I will opt for the 85.

Thanks for your help guys.

Sorry about that. Your location is listed as London UK.

Coincidence I’m about to start on an OTOP as well. CC 85HV and Plettenberg Xtra 30 -10.

Graham,

no problem, I am actually in London, but will be in the States soon hence the need to find a supplier over there!

I will be using the Axi 5330/f3a - not as nice as the plett I am sure but quite a bit cheaper - and the funds don't stretch in all directions at once!

good luck with the otop, let me know how you get on.

what batteries are you using??

well, gentlemen, i disagree, because size does matter... with the axi 5330/18, which pulls 78A on the ground on a 19x12 APC/E, sucking from a fresh pack of 10S1P3700XP's, i blew a CC 85HV last summer. maybe it was produced by mr castillo on a bad hair monday, but since then, i trust a 110HV, dynamic brake set at 10%. and i can use it on a larger 2,5m raven with a neumotors 2215 , as well. (see the two planes on my profile). ah, and it's a lot better to have a beefier ESC than all that lead in the too short nose! cheers,

Hmmm.

I'm running the AXI 5330/18 with a 18x12 apc E prop and Tanic 10s2p 4960 mah and wide open 63 amps and battery temp 115f.
I have both the HV85 and HV110 with out a problem..
