I've been flying for over a year and have played with smaller, fast set ups maxing out at CC80amp ESC on 4s and 5s set ups for 130mph+ speeds. I'm now going into bigger birds like the Sundowner 50, Kyosho Kelly Racer and Thunder Tiger Rare Bear 1/6 scale. I plan on using 5s up to 10s 3300-5000mAh batteries and hoping for 100mph minimum and up to 150mph+ on some of these planes. I recently purchased 3 CC110HV ESC's, but am wondering, when do you need to go to an HV set up as opposed to a regular ESC. Lets say on these set ups I don't go over 70amps using 5s or 6s. Do I need to go to an HV or can I stick with my CC80? I'm just wondering where the dividing line is so I can make better decisions down the road as I learn more about the higher end electronic set ups. Thanks in advance.
