650 IronMan - One of My First Builds

Don't know what flight controller u are using, but just a word of caution: whatever you go with, stay away from BLHeli ESCs. They do NOT play nice with Naza-M or Tarot flight controllers. Nice collection BTW
Edit: Forget my suggestion for the rctimer escs, they're not optos and only rated for 3S unless you disable the BEC

I am using a naze m lite. I want to get a eagle tree vectro, but it will be a little before I can get one. So blheli is no good with naza? That was going to be my choice. I think I can get by with 30a esc. I have had about 10 flight on the dji 20a and they have not exceeded 100f so far.

I'm installing the Vector this morning.  With it's custom wiring harness, everything including video components are simple to connect.  But yes, get some ESCs with SimonK , your Naza will thank you

the weather's turned so I've only got one battery through it on my 650 Sport, but  the setup was quite easy and it flies much smoother and more responsive than it ever did with the Naza-M.  And that's with out-of-the box settings.  So impressed that I ordered another one and just finished installing it on my Disco this morning.  Once I get some experience I'll do a quick write-up, as the Vector has some very cool features.  The OSD system is amazing, every function and setting that that you would normally have to change on a computer through the GCU software can be done through your goggles.  Also able to do autonomous flight with a multitude of commands for each waypoint.

Thanks I look forward to a update on the vector.  I have an extra set of DYS XM30a, do you think these esc's would be able to hold up against the T-Motor 2814 710kv? One of the reasons I want to use them is I already have them, and they would cut down on my AUW.

They should be just fine as long as you're using a 3 or 4S lipo.

OK I only plan to use 4s on these motors with APC MR1455 props.
