Feeling out: Cobra ESC order

Feeling out: Cobra ESC order

PostPosted: Tue May 27, 2014 11:43 am

Does anyone need some ESC's right now? I'm thinking about putting together a group order for the popular cobra 100 amp esc. I can get other sizes as well but that size has worked particularly well and most people have just stuck with them.

I can't do a TON of discount, but I can get them down to about $65 shipped to everyone if we can put an order together of more than six pieces or so. I'll personally take two so another four is what we would need.

Anyone interested?

Ian-

Put me down for 2... I could probably use 3 if you end up short of a price break...

Fortunately its not a price break I'm trying to meet this time, just trying to split the shipping costs up among a few more units. Flat rate shipping is getting expensive!

Ian, I may be interested in one. Which cobra motor would you recommend to go on the EVO Cap. Thinking it would be nice to match one of their motors with an ESC.

Get that Exceed Rocket that LoneStar had on his Cap… it's the 800kV one unless you want to go nuts with 900kV like's going on my WildTiger!

I usually like the Castle ESCs I've been using, but the Cobras are a much better match (weight wise) when it comes to über-light setups… and don't even bother with the 40, 60, or 80A models… just keep a mess of 100A around for any e :gay: project!

Yeah, Ian had recommended the 100Amper. I think I've finally settled on Epower for this thing. I wanted to try the 55AX, but I would rather go with what this bird is designed for. I'll put that on my Sabre ARF I just picked up. The Exceed Rocket was recommended by Ian as well. Said it was a...well...Rocket. Tough choice between the 800 or 900kv.

I'd go 800kV - but that's just what my Motrolfly is wound to… you've seen the vids of Ian flying mine at NorCalBro… holy crap! I'm pretty sure I remember LoneStar's was an 800kV, but I was a bit "out of it" in Houston too…

Get the 800. It was ballistic on Lonestar's cap at hobro. I think the 900 may be so much it won't work well. I'll be interested to see anyway. I have an 800 on order right now that will find its way onto my new purple cap. Should be "fun" at 4.25lbs.

OK, I think I'll just go with the Exceed motor since you guys seem to like them and they're half the price of the Cobra Motor. Ian, let me do a little more looking around at ESC's, but I'm still interested in the Cobra 100A. I'll let you know soon.

Didn't AD3D have a 900 on that MadYak? That thing looked ballistic.

I'm gonna go with the 800 though.

I had a 900kv 4250 Leopard on a MadYak, it WAS ballistic! (RIP Skelator). It is now on a MadCap 50 and is margin.

The 900kv Exceed would be a great budget option for a 40 size bird but is not suited for the larger birds since it would be working way to hard to spin those bigger discs. I personally 15-16" prop for 50-60 size, 13-14" for 40size

Thanks AD. Yeah, if the guys like the Exceed 800 on the EVO/MadCap airframes, I'll just go with that.

What size prop were you running on the 900? I could see it being a good with a 14x7 or so but I think the 500 would do better with the 15x8 I like for the 50-60 size stuff.
