Thread: Deke speed control substitute?

    Deke speed control substitute?

    Hi all,
    I have a bellanca decathlon which has stopped working. I think the speed control is fried. (is there an easy way to diagnose that?) Replacement part is backordered - is there a simple substitution that you could recommend?

    One way to check to make sure the motor is not bad, is to take the prop off and connect a battery directly to the motor terminals. The motor should spin with direct voltage. If not the motor is bad. If it does then it is likely the ESC. Any 10-20A brushed motor esc for aircraft would work for it.

    Thanks for the reply, Jason. Motor is fine, confirmed by direct current. I'll look for a speed controller somewhere - seems all the brushed aircraft speed controllers are out of stock here...

    All the best,

    Yeah, there are getting harder and harder to source as brushless motor dominate the market now.
