With the debut of the Phoenix Edge series of ESCs the next evolution
in speed controller technology has arrived. The Edge series introduces
a user programmable auxiliary wire capable of functions modelers have
only dreamed of, until now. The white auxiliary wire can be used for
helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an
audible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, act as an RPM output for
3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock
(coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included) or as a receiver arming
lock. Combined with the data logging capability the Edge series of
controllers offer, users can enjoy unparalleled versatility.
The Phoenix Edge series is intended for use in helicopters ranging from
450 to 800 size, and fixed wing aircraft up to 1.20 size and larger.
As always, the Edge series of controllers offer industry-leading
software functions, data logging, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (free with included coupon).
*RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 80 amps for the duration of a single
5,000 mAh battery pack with the ESC in contact with a 5 mph airflow of
25C (77F) or cooler air. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C
(212F). Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage components
and may shorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current draw
at full-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease the
ESC’s operating temperature.
