I have a CC Phoenix 10 (micro2/F330) esc fitted to a Techone Gent epp shockflyer indoor model and have updated to v3.00 using my Castle Link. I am using a new Axi 2203/46 motor with a 8x4.3 GWS prop and new 20c 2s 480mah LiPo's and am not getting as much power as I expected to get.

Can anyone advise if the settings listed below are correct for the Axi 2203/46, particularly timing and PWM settings?

Id suggest changing the PWM to 8 and timing to low and see how that does.

In most cases, those are the best settings for outrunners.

Also. double check to be sure you're getting full throttle - the LED on the esc is on full at full throttle.

Id also ask how you determined you're having less power now than before. The new software is more efficient, so you may be drawing fewer amps but still getting the same rpm.

Its the rpm that matters :)

OK, thanks for the reply Larry, I'll try those settings.
Defo getting full throttle led.
Hadn't used the motor or esc before as the're both new but I had hoped for more power from the setup. Maybe I'll try lightening the airframe a bit or using a smaller LiPo ;-)

Changed the PWM to 8, timing to low and throttle response to high. it definately has more RPM now :)
Thanks for the advice Larry
