    Vector + Esc Separation

    Hello, i am building a tbs capi with the vector in the middle on the CG. I am trying to find a place to mount the ESC, i have looked at other setups but those are not ideal for me. Can i mount the ESC on top the vector or is there need for some kind of separation?

    Thanks

    Vector + Esc Separation

    I have an install where the Vector is installed on top of the esc. There's a small amount of separation, maybe 1/4" and I have no issues. Using a Hobbywing Pro 30 amp esc. I think you'll be fine as long as you have a descent esc and some cooling.

    ok thank you. cooling shouldn't be an issue since both are directly in the airflow. I also have some copper tape I can put between them if necessary. Can you send me a pic of your setup please? Thanks

    I have roughly 3 inches of separation between the two, and have never had an issue.

    You might consider placing an ambient cooling fin unit from the computer world with some Thermal past on the ESC then mount the Vector on top. This will significantly increase the surface area for cooling the ESC and if you use a aluminum or copper sheet on top it will act to dissipate heat off the Vector as well. Might be important if you use the separately powered RX power Config. I have found this increases Vector heat.
