Plush 10A Brushless Speed Controller The Plush series of ESC are a very good quality controller with a broad range of programming features and smooth throttle response compared to other BESCs in the same price range. These escs have linear throttle curve and can handle 10A continuously.
Cont Current: 10A Burst Current: 12A BEC Mode: Linear BEC : 5v / 2A Lipo Cells: 2-4 NiMH : 5-12 Weight: 9g Size: 27x17x6mm User Programmable, both via controller and optional programming card. The programming card is an excellent item as it instantly tells the user the current settings and with a few simple clicks of the buttons, the user can change the settings and have graphical reassurance of those changes. The programming card is an excellent item and simple to use! Much better than Jeti or similar programming cards.
I have a set of 4 of these. My question is why am I getting a 3.25v reading on all the signal wires?
I am getting the correct 5v between ve & -ve so why am I getting this strange voltage between the signal wire and the -ve?
I'm not a real expert on that, but from my understanding, you'll not be able to read the operating voltage from a signal wire, since the signal isn't a constant positive current, but needs to carry the information in - very baldly spoken - a certain sequence of varying voltage levels. got the idea? imagine a signal with two different states: high level of 5V and a low level of -5V. now, imagine that by chance, one piece of information is made of a high-low sequence and the communication is steadily transmitting that information. in this example, that would be similar to an active current switching between 5/-5V and therefore not giving you any reading (when you try to measure DC). now, the signal used for this ESC is a PWM signal, which is a bit more complicated than my constructed example and not that deterministic in the result you may get on a DC measure.
This controller and all others come pre programed - so you simply solder to your motor plug into your reciever, solder on a battery plug (to match your battery) plug the battery in and it will work (is factory set to lipo mode and if your throttle stick is in the low position will beep the number of lipo cells connected)
It comes pre programmed with some defaults that should fit many people. Never the less you should always double check the settings and make sure they fit your needs. I'll link in a video below that shows how to check and change the settings of this (and many other turnigy ESCs)
I bought a micro cessna 182 rc airplane, the esc on that plane was 6A.... it burnt out... so will it be possible for me to replace this esc with my cessna 182... btw the motor for the cessna is 2600KV..?
Yes you can replace it. The amp rating of the ESCs must not match. As long as the new ESC can handle at least the same amps as the old one you are fine. So no problem here. But you should check that the physical dimensions of the ESC are also OK. Usually ESC get bigger the more amps they can handle. So just make sure that this ESC fits into your airplane. This one if really tiny, so I guess it should not be a problem.
Definitely no problems to replace the ESC and these are very good ESC's. the w/bec just means with bec (battery eliminator circuit) which just means that the ESC will also power the receiver and servos from the main flight battery.
I ordered these to replace one that got burned out. I cannot get the new one to calibrate with the old ones. Is it a different flash? These are the exact same part and the exact same numbers, but do not calibrate with my first ones. ANyone have any ideas?
Are the other 3 ESCs flashed with a custom type of firmware, for example SimonK?
16 thumbs up!
Control caught fire upon hooking it up to a 11.1v 500mah lipo. Wouldn't you know it burst into flames. The shipping to send it back would cost more than buying a new controller. Crap.......

This is a great ESC, but it only last about 4 flights working OK, then it failed with more than a 3 Amp load, it cut-off, this is working with a 2s lipo pack that have verify its charged and failure its constant, when power drawn its more than 3 amps it cutoffs, also i have verify voltaje and its steady at 8.0 volts and lipo detection its of 2 cells. Maybe bad luck of defective unit.
