I ran my first tests in the bathtub yesterday with the ARC200 (Freefly have very kindly sent me a test unit).
Initially I ran my old ESC I have been using for the foil (HK Yep 120A HV) and on the 6384 100Kv direct drive it really didn’t seem to compare to my geared setup.
I changed the ESC over to the ARC200 and it made a massive difference!!! Honestly even though its just been in bath tests (I’ll upload a video shortly) it has already shown WAY more promise than the cheaper ESC.
I am running it in Torque mode with no reverse and with a “jitter start”. You can set the temp cutoff for the ESC, max battery amps, max motor amps. All relevant voltage cutoffs. You can adjust the throttle curve. It really is fantastic to have such fine control over the setup.
The motor also starts up really smoothly now and can spin the prop really slowly which I never had with my other ESC.
I’ll drop a video in my thread on testing the ARC200 so that you can see this shortly…
