Hi-Maxx HC6332-230 and Caste Phoenix Ice 2 80AMP
 
Is the Phoenix Ice 2 80 Amp ESC enough to keep up with this motor? My intention is to run 2 X 5s 5amp packs so basically 10s 5 amp. I know prop choice is important as well and would love any advice on that as well. Thank you all in advance!!

All depends on the prop. That is critical. :)

The motor is in a Extreme-flight Vanquish 2M pattern plane. I was planning on using a 18x10 or 19x10 prop. Too much? The MAxx produsct site says the motor is a replacement for a 1.8 glow and that is about the size prop I have used on my Moki 1.8. Bit of a noob at electric and need all the help I can get. Dont want to smoke the ESC or burn up a motor...Thanks.

I think both are safe starting points. Start with the smaller. About 2k watts. Should go nicely. LOTS of direct cooling air for the ESC. Important on large models.

I'm confused. 5 Amp battery? If all you will be pulling from the battery is 5 Amps then the ESC will be fine, but the plane wont move let alone fly.

Or do you mean 5 Amp-hours ?. Amps is current, Amp-Hours is charge. It's similar to a comparison between 'miles' and 'miles per hour'... Different units to measure different physical properties

Thanks Rcers for the reply. I will go with the 18x10.

Here is a case where access to one of those wattmeters is really important. With the wattmeter, you can increase throttle from zero to full power, and see exactly how many amps your motor is pulling.

And, if it's headed well north of 80 Amps, you can easily back off throttle before killing anything.

Just going from an 18 inch to an 19 inch prop can make a real difference in the amperes, and watts pulled by your motor.
