    Hi everyone with mini tricopters. I just got my 4s liPo in the mail and took my mini for a flight. I came down after a couple minutes and put my hand on the ESC. It was fairly warm to the touch. 90°F ish. Is this normal? what are the temperatures of other peoples ESCS?
    Thanks

    That’s not bad. If you can wrap your hand around it and keep it that way, it’s fine. That basically goes for all the electronics.

    I measured my rear ESC at 92°F after a 7 min flight this morning. Ambient temperature was in the low 50’s. This is running 4S with David’s power setup.

    The motors were around 70, and I couldn’t find anything on the outside of the boards warmer than mid 60’s.

    Pretty cool, literally and figuratively!
