I've got a CC 80 Amp HV ICE ESC. This thing records Volts, Battery ripple volts, current, ampere hours, watts, temperature, RPM, throttle input in milliseconds (0.5 to 2.5 ms) and power in percentage of 100%.
It can be programmed to sample these parameters from something like 10 readings per second to seconds between readings. A reading once per second will give a little over an hour of flight data. Output is a graph program by CC. The raw data is on a standard Excel spreadsheet.
I see that a vendor on Amazon has the CC Ice 100 AMP ESC for $100 - not too bad a price for an American made product. Are support/warranty issues covered directly by Castle Creations or do they need to go through the vendor?
