In the hull of the model I am refurbishing, an Aero-Naut Jenny, the brushless motor is located quite some distance from where the battery and receiver are positioned. Is there a preferred location for the ESC? Near the battery to keep the power supply leads short, or near the motor, to keep the motor leads short. Or doesn't it matter considering the the relatively short distances involved whichever way I do it?
If I have the ESC at the back near the battery and receiver, under the cockpit , there is not a lot of headroom when the cockpit is in place and therefore not a lot of fresh air to cool the ESC so water cooling may have to be added. Whereas in the "engine room" there is more space.
Have I answered my own question re the preferred location?
