Default 6HV stock motor & ICE HV settings

I bought a ice hv 120 and I would like to know that you have fully configured you in the cc.

i'm still trying to figure out timing, my top of my motor is pretty hot on high timing, i'm gonna go back to mid and see how it is.

i should really just buy a hw

8khz pwm freq, i've tried both standard and low timing with good results. Haven't tried high timing.

Just try 18 of timing, gives the motor good power and the motor stays cool ! Works great

Grtz,
Dirk

should the pwm freq be at 12? is that what the hobbywing flies at?

just flew 12khz and 19 timing, it felt like i had more power. 95% flat throttle curve.

I've been working on tic-tocs, and today i did a climbing tic-toc, so i'm guessing the power is up a bit.

I haven't checked my cell voltage yet.

Batteries were cooler, the top (silver part) of the motor is still pretty hot. I can keep my finger on it for a good 15 secs, the rest is cool.

I was flying 8khz and high(10) timing before.

all this is on a cc85hv esc.

yes, save settings and copy the contents of the text file it generates.

here is a formula that will allow you to figure the PWM for the various motor.
Motor KV x Nominal Voltage Used x Motor Pole Count / 20

If you come up with a number in-between settings such as 9,235 you should
round down to 8k Low timing works well with these motors so you can start with that & check the temps. If there not bad you can move up to normal but do a short flight & check the temp. Timing that's to high will cause hi heat.

So for the 6HV this is as follows :

540 (kv) x 44.4 (NV) x 8 (poles) : 20 = 9.590 so pwm can be set to 8.

Hope this helps!

Grtz,
Dirk

+1. I get really good power out of the motor at 12KHz and 15 timing on the HW. Would it be better to run the HW at 8KHz? Which would run cooler?

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
