Actually, it isn't all that bad, I was expecting the bird to jump all over but it stays pretty much in place, and the fact that even after a hard flight ..the darn thing is almost cooler than when you started.

Well worth the $129.00

granted it doesn't have all the bells and whistles but for a clean basic HV ESC it does the job very nicely.

I am currently running the CC85HV paired with the neu 1915 and after every flights its pretty hot. Is it just because it probably on the verge of not being enough ESC? If I were to switch to something like this would it be beneficial?

The governor mode on it works BUT not very well.

It allows over-speeding, and doesn't react quickly enough to sudden pitch changes that might bog.

It reacts, but late.

Try this with it.. head upwards at 14 degrees, wait until max escape velocity is achieved, then slam to full negative pitch (or reverse this).

The USB programming box has no governor tweaking at all.

It seems to run well, but I'm getting a YGE instead.

Thanks
