Default HW 40 ESC help

Hi All,

Need alittle advice. Installed the above in my Mini Titan FBL. Using internal BEC to
power the align servos. Heli flys well but strangely on pitch pumps its very slow to react.
On bench collective functions well. Pitch set at 10 deg will no binding of the links. Is it
possible that the 3 amp internal bec is insufficient to power all 3 servos under load ?

I'm using the the same ESC on my Mini Protos without issue. BEC seems to be keeping up with my power needs.

Do you have the Platinum version? What's your BEC set to (5.5 or 6V)?

One test would be hook up an external BEC and see if your problem persists.

Running 3x MKS DS92A+ and 1x DS8910A+ at 6V from the internal BEC (3A) without any problems.
