The HobbyKing Red Brick ESCs wont win first place for style, though they will take top points for simplicity and reliability. With a basic set of programming features these ESCs are a perfect solution for anyone looking for a basic yet robust speed controller.
Specs. Max Amps: 50A Ubec: Nil Cells: 2~7s Lipoly Size: 60mm x 14mm 35mm Weight: 40g (Inc Wires)
Hobbyking you are kidding us!
This ESC doesn't have any opto, after opening i realized you just cut the red wire shorter and didn't connect it.
That's even dangerous because the wire is in the hot glue and just touch the circuit board, it could do some short circuit with UBEC powering RX...
Some time it sucks really!
Seems like one of the 3 wires between the ESC and motor is not making a connection.
11-23-2011, installed in a Horizon T-28 with a Power 10 motor, and Castle 10A UBEC. Power is from three new, charged, 3S, 20C, 2200 Zippy batteries. Works just "OK"; the Red Brick 50A shuts down immediately on some batteries and not others. The problem is IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CHECK THE DEFAULT SETTINGS IN THE ESC. It is VERY hard to interpret programming steps in the one page of instuctions. These need to be rewritten.
