Less Spark from Ice 2. Anyone else?
The KDE motor/Ice 2 showed up today and first off, it's freaking sweet. No vibes, runs cool, tons of power. If your 600mx is rattling your heli and you go for a new motor there's your choice.
Now back to the reason for the thread. Picked up an Ice 2 80HV since the old V1 went in the mail to castle today. Plugging in a 6s just to test some things I noticed the spark was a bit less potent...less current than usual.
So once everything was working I tossed on the series connector and prepared myself for the BANG I had gotten used to on 12s. To my excitement, the spark I got was quite a bit less violent; about the same as a 6s would get me on the old 80HV.
Has anyone else noticed this who went from the older 80HV to the newer one? Did castle add a circuit to charge the caps slower when they updated the board to fix the fet/fet driver problems?
At first I thought it was just me having the "shiny phase" with the new parts but I tried the old 80HV earlier that day and did it again against the Ice 2 later to be sure. Definitely less spark, about half as bad with the Ice 2. Should have put a Fluke up to it and checked the current spike.
Oh well, Ice 2 works and fits nice and the KDE is sweet so I'm good
Happy flying to everyone this weekend. Gunna fly the hell out of the pro as much as I can this time.
