Default Turnigy Sentilion 100Amp ESC

Hi
Thinking about using a Turnigy Sentilion 100Amp ESC in my next plane. Does anyone have any experience of this unit good or bad. Seems to be a good unit with a meaty heatsink and the blurb ticks the boxes but advertisng is advertising and reality is another thing.

A friend of mine is useing this ESC with a Turnigy 63-64 motor and 2x 5s Rhino 4900 20C LiPo (all chineese stuff) with goos suxess. He don´t put too many flights on it, about 30. After a 9 minutes flight on a CA Model Genesis 4.80 Kg all stuff is only warm, 20-22ºC (consider that we are in winter, about 10ºC) Do not espect to have many set up posibilities. If you see the program card you will noticed that you can choose from 3 different options in aceleration, voltage cut of, etc. If you set the brake on the motor start to make an owfull noise in down legs so he disable the brake. For me is a good deal, simple and cheap.

Hope this help.

Hi
would the Caste Creations HV 85 be a better bet?

You won't go wrong with the Castle HV85, you can order a version without a heatsink which works well for pattern (and is lighter).

How much lighter is the non-heatsink version?

Hi
I think for all the weight a heatsink is i would prefer to have it. The Castle Creations seems to have more features al be it for slightly more money. So i think i will go with it.

Earl, are you flying the Neu motor now? Every time I've used the HV-85 with a Hacker C50 standard or Competition I've gotten the rough start issue where for a moment it isn't sure which direction it wants to go...clack, clack, clack, back and forth before spinning.

Is this resolved with a new firmware upgrade or is it not an issue on the Neu?

Funny ...... I run my Hacker C50's with a Jeti Spin, but I got ugly snapping gearbox noises when I put in a Neu. Tried many settings on the Jeti Spin (via the Jeti Box) to no avail. Switching to a CC HV85 cured the probelm.
Seems the motor and ESC must have good chemistry and that Jeti + geared Hacker or Neu + CC are the best partners.

and the blurb ticks the boxes
All the boxes apart (I think) from progressive brake (F3A brake) which is essential in my opinion.
Probably good for many other applications though, but not pattern.

Hi, I got one of this sentilion 100A esc. I like to use LiFe 2S for powering my spektrum recievers/servos, but in this case, will the 7.2V life charged voltage be a problem to the Turnigy ESC?

Thanks!
Gustavo.

The ESC is isolated from the receiver side. Only pulse and ground is connected. It will not be a problem at all.
