Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    What factors help to determine the highest rated amperage  esc that I should use in my application?
    • A. 

      Flying style

    • B. 

      Continuous amp and burst amp rating of my motor

    • C. 

      Length of my tail boom

    • D. 

      C rating of my batteries

  • 2. 
    The formula Volts x Amps is used for calculating Watts
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 3. 
    Higher voltage (HV) setups are more efficient because
    • A. 

      They are lighter weight, so they fly better

    • B. 

      They are cheaper to assemble

    • C. 

      They are quieter when flying

    • D. 

      As Voltage goes up, amperage required goes down, therefore efficiency increases

  • 4. 
     A properly designed HV power system will produce less heat and will be easier on batteries than a system that is inefficient.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    Battery to esc connectors are important in the performance of your power system
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    When soldering, it does not matter if the connection is properly formed as electricity will flow no matter how bad of a soldering joint you have created.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    The three basic units of electricity are voltage, current and resistance.  Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps, and resistance is measured in ohms
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 8. 
    A good analogy, using simple plumbing,  to explain volts, amps, and ohms is as follows
    • A. 

      Voltage represents water pressure

    • B. 

      Amps represent the rate at which the water flows

    • C. 

      Ohms represent the size of the pipe in which the water is flowing

    • D. 

      They all three sound like gibberish, why should I know this

  • 9. 
    Bearings, pinon-main gear mesh, or a failing auto hub will cause no problems with your power system.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    Using the combination of a Kontrok ESC and a Kontronik Motor will provide you with the following:
    • A. 

      The most reliable pairing of a motor and esc available

    • B. 

      A drive system designed to perform efficiently

    • C. 

      A powerful combination backed by German engineering and design
