Default Phoenix 35 and EC3's

Hey all, just wondering if a Phoenix 35 will fit ok on the 250? Just got one and was wondering how well it would fit. I plan on mounting it on the bottom of the frame.

Also, are EC3's too big for a 250?

Thank you in advance.

Rex

im sure it can be used without a problem but alittle large on everything including wire size, it will be harder to mount than a 25 setup and harder to arrange the beefier wires, and if im carrying extra weight i would rather have a 25 with a seperate bec so i could drive my servos with alittle more performance .. just the way i look at it ... the connectors should be ok i'd rather have those than deans .. but if thats what you got i would use it, if you have a stock esc i would suggest keeping it and getting a seperate bec and save the 35 for a 450 ...

Wonder if I'll have a problem soldering a 2mm bullet connector on to the motor wires.

Rex save the 35a speedy for a 450 class heli, it will be overkill and super heavy on the little 250. go with something in the 15-25 amp range like a phoenix 25 or jazz mini 15 or 20a speed controller. http://www.readyheli.com/PHOENIX25-C...C_p_35772.html
http://www.readyheli.com/Kontronik-M...5_p_37485.html If you want to use efilte connectors go with some ec2's they are a little bigger than jst connectors but the can handle more current. http://www.readyheli.com/EFLAEC303-E...e_p_32490.html

Ive got an Exceed 30 on my 250 and its doing great. Mounted it under the skids nice and tidy.
Only a couple grams heavier then the Align stockie and looks great.
If your 35 is about the same size youll be fine.

Excellent. I think the CC is 10 grams heavier than the stock align ESC. That's not much. Hopefully it might take some of the twitchiness out of it.
