Lipo Cell Count for T100 Thrusters


(David Ingraham) #1

Hello all,

I was wondering if the T100 and basic ESC’s are capable of running safely on a 4S lipo. The 12V rating would suggest that it’s designed to run on 3S, but I was wondering how conservative that rating is.

Thanks!

Hey David,

The T100 and Basic ESCs can definitely run on 4s lipos but we haven't done much testing to see if there is additional wear. The T100 gets over 7 lb of thrust at 14.8V. I would recommend limiting your power commands or it may wear out more quickly!

We'll try to do some more endurance/wear testing at higher voltages and let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the reply Rusty. We’ll cap our command signals to around 80% for now then. I look forward to the results of your testing

I`d be happy if I could run my rig on 4s as I have a stack of 4s 5000mah already.

Look forward to the test results.

Hi Rusty,

Is there any more data on running the T100 on 4S since this post?
