My eboard is going to be built with vesc, 5000mah 3s 20c batteries. Turnigy 6374 motor. I would like to install a SBEC. Can I use any of these? What exactly does a SBEC do?
Can someone please post a good SBEC to purchase.
Why do you need an UBEC ? The VESC can deliver 5V to your receiver
ok thanks. i’m new to this, what about a BMS, do I need one? All input much appreciated.
Use the search button Everything you need to know is allready somewhere here in the forum.
If you buy high Quality cells to build your pack, you wont need a bms. Because (As long you dont do something wrong) they stay balanced for about a year or two. Just check them with a multimeter every month to stay safe. If you get cheap cells or laptop cells, wou will need a bms.
I’m using Zippy Flightmax 5000mah 3s 20c batteries.
I assume you are going to run these in series for 6S? Just get a decent balance charger and you will be good. The Turnigy Accucel-6 & the IMAX B6 50W are both good chargers. Don’t forget to get a power supply with them as well.
I never used Lipos… Not sure if they work better with bms. When i start to use them (With my next build), i will use a voltage display/Voltage buzzer. So if any cell go down to much, it will warn me.
I feel safer with a buzzer. You know if something in your pack goes wrong. A Bms never says to you if your cells are just okay or allready dead. Thats why i dont trust them.
THere are a lot people using Lion packs with a BMS, so I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it, but I prefer to balance charge so I can see the cell values. I’m always thinking about maybe getting 1 bad cell and having to toss a pack because of it. I am actually waiting on a 10s Lion pack with BMS, but if youa re going to run 6s, Id just get a balance charger and the MEB Simple Charging Port and be done with it.
Does anyone know where I can find it cheaper in price?
