Its no “Mystery” where these ESCs are made, now they are available to you at HobbyKing prices.
Built with imported N-Channel mosFETs and an ultra fast Atmel MCU & heartbeat make this a high performance ESC with excellent sync capabilities. This ESC has a 4A SBEC for solid reliable servo power. 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)
Factory default settings: Brake: off Battery type Detect: LiPo with Automatic Cell Low voltage cutoff threshold: Medium (3.0V/65%) Timing setup: Automatic Soft Acceleration Start Up: Medium Governor mode : OFF Frequency : 8kHz Low voltage cutoff type: Reduce power
I have 1 mystery and 1 blueseries esc and 1 20A blueseries. I can't get anyone of them in start acc mode. I tried programming with transmitter and programming card. What am I doing wrong?? I can program brake and rotation, but not start acc. All of them ramp up with 1 sec slowly first.
When I turn throttle up, motor turns at about 10% for 2 sec then jumps to the current throttle position. I've tried all setting on and off. ( govenor, soft start etc) nothing seems to stop this rpm jump at startup. The same thing happens with a 30a blue series that I have. I'm really stumped on this one!
this is for the esc to sync with motor rotation so it can power it in the right direction. I had sync problems with plush 30a because that relied on stick calibration rather than actual motor rotation. I think this should be normal
Something weird is going on with this esc. When I move throttle stick up, motor starts spinning slowly, then after 1 second jumps up to 2x speed. I have tried 3 different motors and tried various settings on the esc using the programming card. Any ideas?
Hi all, is that AWG 16 going to the motor (can't quite make it out from the pic)? I though I might need to extend the wires with AWG 12 but looks like 14 will be fine. Only a short distance of around 20-25cm. Thanks in advance
The wire going from ESC to the motor is 16AWG and the wire going to the battery is 14AWG. So you'll be fine using 14 AWG wire on the motor side. Don't forget to use some heat shrink on your connections to avoid any short circuits.
You need to program your maximum throttle input on your ESC. Turn on the transmitter, move the throttle stick to the top, connect the ESC. After 8 beeps, divided by 2 continuos (** ** ** **), move the throttle stick down, now you have programmed you ESC. It should be working now like normal.
What is the difference between this ESC and another Hobbyking ESC(HobbyKing 40A ESC 4A UBEC)?
Both of them are very similar except this BlueSeries is slightly more expensive. Anyone has experience on both of them?
HOw much weight do you expect from your Tri? You should choose motors with a combined thrust that is twice the overall weight of the tricopter. Say if you have a 2kg overall weight, each motor should at least be capable of 1.33kg of thrust or more.
The NTM motor looks slightly superior. But I am not sure which one of these is better. Also be careful the shaft diameter of NTM motor is 3.5 instead of the usual 3.17 so u'll have to use an appropriate pinion.
from what i saw the 6s motors have to have lower kv ratings i dunno much about 6s setups but the 2 motors are specific made for the 450 class and the ntm it suppose to be the higher watt motor.. i cant seem to find any flight videos or reviews for these motors any additional info would be great
my question is i have a hk450 i want to run extreme 3d for the longest time possible for a 450 class..
i know the esc is rated upto a 6s pack so would a 3s 25c really be the best battery for this setup. and if not what would be the best battery for longer 3d run times...!!!

I have the esc, two of them to be exact for my starmax f-14 edf jet. I'm putting 64mm edf's in place of the 60mm edf's. I wanted to know if i were to use two(2) 4cell lipo packs, one for each esc, would that give me a long flight time and more thrust. I mean there are two(2) edf's in my plane each with a 5000kv outrunner motor each with it's own esc. I should be able to have a battery pack for each one? it makes sense. the esc's are 40a continuous and 60a burst current. each one can handle a four cell pack. I guess my question is will this work?
thanks for any help.
I would think this should be ok, but you might want to hook up the batteries in parallel, so that if one battery discharges at a faster rate it would would be able to draw from the other battery. Otherwise it will effect thrust adversly. Make sure in parallel, not series. Good Luck!
It's never a good idea to operate your equipment outside the rated limits, Karina. You should choose servos that are rated for at least 5.5 volts. Both of the servos that abdulahad100 mentioned are good, and the HXT900s are only a little more money than the TG9e.

I don't recommend it for Heli, because it doesn't have really soft start.
In very soft start mode it starts with a short strong bump, then it goes to 50pcnt speed for a second and then to 100pcnt.
450 Heli rotates 90 degree on the ground with such a "soft" start. The same Heli works fine with Plush.
Every motor I've tried with this ESC runs VERY hot. Also my battery time is shorter. You can to better in this price range.

Wow, I am glad I bought this when I did! This is a fantastic speed control. I hooked it up to my new HK 450MT project and have had no problems. I haven't gotten the chance to really load it up yet, but it runs cool in hovering (test flights).
I deducted one star because it comes with no instructions. While you can build the HK 450 with T-Rex instructions, I wouldn't attempt programming the ESC with them!
-Still Did not test it Great Quality..... Even shipping is Good. I m from India and I ordered about .983 Kg(Total) and i received it within 11 Dayz from the date of Shipping.....Thats Great... Thankx Hobby King.. :-)
