ESC mounting question


(Richard) #1

@Rusty-Attached is a picture of how the ESC’s are mounted to the side of the battery pack using silicon sealant. Should I be concerned about ESC heat dissipation with one side being solid against the battery pack?

Thanks,

Richard

Richard,

I mentioned this in the other post as well. I would not recommend mounting the ESCs with silicone because they can overheat and the silicone is an excellent insulator. Additionally, the battery will also warm up as it discharges so it will provide little or no heat sinking capability. I would recommend mounting the ESCs in free air if possible.

Best,

Rusty

@Richard,

You can permanently attach your ESCs to, say an aluminum heat sink plate, using Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive.
