"Yes, but if you have an esc that can draw a little more than what the PDB is reccomended for youll be fine worse case is the PDB will get a little warm. The esc doesnt pull its rated amps all the time the. the only time you can expect an esc to…"

"Oh okay thanks, I think I understand now. I always interpreted this as the PDB feeding current to the ESC. So in terms of purchasing a PDB I need to aim for one that have ESC output ratings that exceed the rating of the ESC, to ensure the ESC can…"

Hi All, Bit of a newb to drones and just trying to understand the relationship between the PDB and ESC when buying these components. I can't seem to find a related thread anywhere on the below scenarioIn short, I've noticed that some PDB's have specified the output current per ESC (continuous and burst). For example, the Matek mini power hub states 20A continuous (and 25A burst) per output. Most of them don't specify this howeverDoes this mean that I need to find an ESC that has a higher or…See More
