    E-Revo 2.0 VXL-6s

    What do you guys think of an ESC Firmware update to increase the output voltage to the Servos?

    Maybe something we could control from within the App. 6v to 9v !!

    I believe if the esc has the power to send 9v to servos they’d already utilize it and market it widely. The esc just can’t handle it.

    Agreed. I don't know of any high end 6s ESC's that have that capable of a BEC.

    Itís not so much voltage that is the issue, itís amperage. At 6v there are plenty of servos that offer plenty of torque. Amperage is what most internal BECís lack. Even the newer ESCís that have decent amperage could benefit from an external BEC. Takes a load off the ESC and that equals less heat in the end. Heat is the enemy of all electronics!!

    Death to heat! Execute with extreme prejudice! Seriously though, electronics have an optimal operating temperature. Warm is happy, hot is the wife's wrath, cold is inefficient. Now go hunt down that heat!
