I would think that it would fall within the specs of this speed control, but want to make sure before hooking it up. I don't know if using a motor that falls that close to the upper limits of the speed controls ratings will shorten it's life, or not?

I'm looking at a Thunderbird 36 if the Phoenix 25 is to small, but would prefer using the Phoenix 25 if possible. I'm unemployed right now, and would prefer not having to buy a new speed control if I don't have to. Then again, I don't want to risk frying my Phoenix if I don't have to either LOL.

Thank You,


P.S. - A hobby store has the Thunderbird 36 on sale until the 4th of July. So if you recommend getting the Thunderbird 36 please try to respond before then.
I know a guy thats using a 25A on that motor running 1320 Pro lite Thunder power batts in a mini edge it seems to do fine, the ESC is not a CC but a electrify I belive.

Lets see if someone else has info, i am about to get a plane that takes the same motor and was planing on useing my CC25 with it unless others think thats a bad idea..

BTW what Hobby shop has it onsale? a local on or online one?
