Lose the weight, gain the Edge.

With the debut of the Phoenix Edge series of ESCs the next evolution in speed controller technology has arrived. The Edge series introduces a user programmable auxiliary wire capable of functions modelers have only dreamed of, until now. The white auxiliary wire can be used for helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an audible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, act as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock or as a receiver arming lock. Combined with the data logging capability the Edge series of controllers offer, users can enjoy unparalleled versatility. 

The Phoenix Edge series is intended for use in helicopters ranging from 450 to 800 size, and fixed wing aircraft up to 1.20 size and larger. As always, the Edge series of controllers offer industry-leading software functions, data logging, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter.

Same Incredible Price
        The Phoenix Edge controllers deliver all of this while retaining the same astonishing  prices as their predecessors.

This product is not intended for use by children under 14 years of age without direct adult supervision.

Tech Notes:

Logged data is stored directly in the controller and may be accessed once the run is over using the Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately) and Castle Link software (available free at castlecreations.com). Phoenix Ice controllers are capable of recording any mix of the following data points:

• Battery Voltage
• Battery Ripple – Finally, a way to evaluate the true capabilities of battery packs! This function measures the voltage drop between the FET on/off cycles. These fluctuations occur at more than 10,000 hertz and are typically not seen with hobbyist metering equipment. Better packs will have a smaller battery ripple value under load. Higher ripple values indicate that the battery is under too large a load for its capabilities.
• Battery Current
• Controller Temperature
• Throttle % as Commanded by Rx
• Throttle % as Commanded by ESC to Motor (Motor Power Output)
• Motor RPM – Users will have to enter the pole count of their motor.

Logging Frequency Choices
• 10 Samples / Sec
• 5 Samples / Sec
• 2 Samples / Sec
• 1 Sample / Sec

The Max Log Size is 21,504 bytes, everything takes one byte except for motor RPM which takes two.

• Logging 'Battery Current' at only a 1 sample / second - 358 minutes of logging time (almost 6 hrs)
• Logging 'Motor RPM' at only 1 sample / second - 179 minutes of logging time
• Logging everything at only 1 sample / second - 44 minutes of logging time
• Logging everything at 10 samples / second - 4 minutes and 28 seconds
