Testing the temperature inside the plane

As the waterproof plane does not have any venting, we need to make sure that the temperature inside the plane doesnt get to high.

Test Setup

Mainly the ESC produces a lot of waste

The temperature was measured directly at the ESC - which was the hottest point in the plane.

Time mTemperature ° CAVomAh

Voltage of the battery after test: 14.30 Volt (3,57 V per cell)

Ende: 50m - 3.70A, 14.16V, 27% anzeige - 3.500 mAh

1min - 100% Thrust - 46° C - no stronger temperature on 20A current.

Battery capacity

Charging the battery: 4500 mAh
