ESC Heat Shrink
« on: August 16, 2019, 01:06:50 pm »
Hey Ya'll,

Where you do you get the Giant Heat Shrink for your ESC's?  I've got a 70A ESC that needs like 2-3" diameter tubing.

Thanks!

I would try Sayle to see if they have any, because I know they sell wire heat shrink tubing in many many many sizes.  Closest Sayle that I go to is on Woodbine Ave south of the 407 (1 or 2 lights) on the east side.

Amazon, for 10$ you can get any size you need for the rest of your life. Next day if you have Prime.

Thanks guys!

Now I just need to figure what size based on the shrink ratio.

I'll check out Sayal and Amazon!

Cheers

Well aren't we 'just picky'...   ::)  Realistically how often do you plan on man handling the ESC anyways?   The label is already gone.  My esc's usually just sit there neglected until they either have to be replaced or I am moving to another plane out of necessity.  ;D

This is true, but I think my OCD won't agree...

Also I saved the labels and I'm going to get clear tubing... OCD... Again...
