Default EDF Question

Guys,

I want to do another EDF. My gear would be a HET 2W-20 with the 70mm HET Fan. My question is would a Turnigy 100 amp ESC be ok for this motor and fan? I have one laying around and would like to use it.

Thanks,
Mike

A 4S set up I presume? Would be enough for sure ...

Yes it would be a 4S set-up. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't hurt anything with the 100 amp ESC

Mike, I fly this set-up in a HET F-20.The amp draw is around 50, so a 100 is more than enough. To save weight, I recommend going with a 60. Also, place the esc in the thrust tube, directly behind the motor. This ensures the esc gets plenty of cooling air.
