If you have room for it, got for the standard ICE 100 Amp ESC, not the ICE "Lite". IMHO, those heat sinks on the standard ESC make it a little more robust. And the standard and Lite units are the same price.
One more question - I found this question via an internet search, but there was no answer: "I just purchased a Castle Creations Phoenix Ice 100 amps to be used on my 600 Heli and I came across a little issue.The Esc has a built in Bec and I would like to eliminate it so I could use the align external bec for a lot of different reasons, however when I disconected the red wire of the esc I was not able to link it up to the computer thru the castle link. I watched some videos of people setting their Esc but nobody metions any issues like Im having. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on this issue as I would really like to use the esc the proper way and be able to use my own bec."
I will be using the ESC the same way this user was attempting to use it - running a separate UBEC. Have you (or anyone else) run into this issue? If so, how did you solve it? Not much point in buying the advanced monitoring capability built into the unit if I won't be able to use it.
