HobbyKing 12A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controller

HobbyKing 12A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controller

Its no “Mystery” where these ESCs are made, now they are available to you at HobbyKing prices.

Built with imported N-Channel mosFET's and an ultra fast Atmel MCU & heartbeat make this a high performance ESC with excellent sync capabilities.
Programmable via an R/C controller.It allows you to program all functions to fit your specific needs, which makes it efficient and user friendly.
 
Features:
Extremely low internal resistance
Super smooth and accurate throttle linearity
Over heat and over-load protection
Auto shut down when signal is lost or radio interference becomes severe for more than 2 seconds
Supports high RPM motors
Power arming protection (prevents the motor from accidentally running when switched ON)
New Advanced programming software
 
Programming features:
Brake setting (we recommend using brake for only folding props applications)
Battery type(LiPo or NiCd/NiMh)
Low voltage cutoff setting
Factory default setup restore
Timing settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness)
Soft acceleration start ups (for delicate gearbox and helicopter applications)
Governor mode(for helicopter applications)
Motor rotation( clockwise\counterclockwise)
Switching frequency
Low voltage cutoff type (power reduction orirnmediate shutdown)

Has anyone used these with 4 cell? says on the heat shrink 3 but on the website it says 4
 EffinA 1907 points
Another person had used it with a 4 cell, but it has to be flashed with SimonK to work with a 4s. I don't recommend it, because if you are already using 4s, you probably are drawing more than 12A.

The last few batches I'm very up set at.. Iv never ever blown these ( magic smoke ) now they are blowing up in all kinds of Quads.. ? Some thing is not right and I do not know what. I just had another one Brand new Puff into smoke ? - Iv only bought about 40 of these with no problems at all - SO WHY NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN DO THEY BLOW UP ? This is Costing me Money HobbyKing ( 5th Brand NEW ESC ) what are you going to do ? I am happy to send the blown ones up to you but fat good that is going to do.. That is $50 Im down now For no reason but bad quality control.. :(

Hey, so I got my Esc's all flashed with the latest Simon k I'm running them with the DYS-1804 motors and 6020 CF T-props, after flying for only a few minutes one Esc gets really hot like I only can just touch it. I re soldered all the joins thinking that my be the problem but nooo it still gets hot, I also used the Gemfan 5030 props as well but still Hotttt. Much help. Thanks..

Do you use this ESC as BEC, so it powers your flight controller? This might be the reason. I dont say it should be so, but by many ESCs this is a common problem.
BEST ANSWER CREDIT AWARDED
 Wolfeyes 42 points
Yes what you say is the case thanks. So if it gets real hot can it let out more than 5v? Also I know it says Over heat and over-load protection but if didn't work could it fry my Fc? I say this because my Fc dont work anymore and I'm not sure what happened. I'm starting to spend a bit of money on this hobby :).
 georgiev.s 684 points
No, it gets hot because of the current from the BEC supplying the flight controller. But it is possible that the ESC put more than 5V and damaged the board. I dont know what kind of board do you have, but try to power it from another 5V source to see if it the board itself or just damaged BEC on the ESC. And thanks for the credit.

Just a note HK ( FLASHING ).. your putting to much HOT glue on the servo lead onto the board.. It is covering part of the chip, and makes life very hard to flash. I can not use the square flash tool.. I had to make the 3 prong tool.. Just saying !!

Iv uploaded a photo of Hot glue on ESC..
 Wolfeyes 42 points
I 2nd that, I used my craft knife to cut away the glue but took me a while to do.
 Timeman 50 points
I was a lill bothered about doing that some glue was really stuck into the PINS of the Chip. I was Lucky to have Senator351 help me out. Not a big deal but it is a pain in the butt. takes a 10 min job and turns it into a 1hr job.

I like the Mystery and Tgy Plush ESCs as they are well specified and have good BEC capabilities too

I think 18AWG wire used for the power leads would have been a better choice for ensuring efficient current flow.

Excellent speed control. I use it with a Turnigy 2730-1500kv running 2 and 3 cell lipo on small,< 32 wing span, 3D planes. I have run up to 4 micro, 5g, servos on the BEC with no problems.
