Default YGE 20a LVT (with telemetry)

As being discussed over at Oxy3 sub- forum and someplace else, yge recently put out new esc class named LVT.

In relation to that, i just like to ask if any body here has tried or planning to try this YGE 20a LVT on their Oxy2s? By the looks of it even if it's labeled 20a will be a great up grade on what we currently have.

Saw that Tomas of Spirit is in com with YGE. Spirit fbl support will most likely be provided for thia esc brand as it is mainstream. Been running telemetry (except mAh) via CC, Open-TX and Spirit on one of my Oxy2s. Very convenient in terms of when to land specially that i use different lipo caps and other useful info. Current logging will just make it better since YGE as an esc in general is up there with the bigboys.

Hoping price will come down (a bit high for the size) once it becomes available Stateside. OR this was just an error on their website?

Watchuthink?

I emailed YGE and was told the 20lvt was a typo and will not be produced.

Da_mn... I kinda suspected because of some mis labeling on the website linked itself. But the picture of the 20a itself was actually correct: one capacitor compared to the 35a version that has two.

Bummer. Thanks, man. Appreciate it.

The 35A is still lighter than the HW flyfun 30A which is a recommended ESC for the Oxy2. So it still sounds like a good fit for the Oxy2.

Hypothetically, if a YGE 20LVT were on the cards, how much would you be willing to pay for it?

Well Lynx recommend 25-30A for the Oxy2, so a 20A would have limited use with the standard motors.

I've been using a YGE18 and it doesn't even get warm. I think Lynx recommendations take into account Tareq's flying style, 6000rpm and Dubai temperatures.

1+ to this. Personally know a dude who has been running this on an Oxy2 for quite sometime. And he's smacker too.

YGE's are pretty tough esc's. Usually understated, but over deliver. But a bit expensive

I personally don't know. Perhaps depending on the feature set offered for the price. With the current esc's available for the Oxy2 and the relatively cheap price they come with, YGE will be a bit hard pressed to be competitive.

For me a good mAh monitoring (plus the typical telemetry we now get with other esc's) and good bec voltage adjuster will suite me nice as long as the price is not that far out. Fifty bucks?

How about sizing? Will it fit the O2?

I liked the idea of this when I first looked into it but will stick with my cheap Talon 15 and just have esc temp, from and flight pack voltage telemetry. Mah consumed would be nice but not necessary. Apparently no smaller capacity esc on the market has a decent bec plus current sensor so there's a small market there but the YGE 20lvt was 40 euros I believe so very pricy.

Well the HW is 45x24x11, the manual for the YGE 35LVT gives the dimensions as 35x23x8, so it's quite a bit smaller than the HW. :-)
