Has anyone tried using this ESC to power the RX, 4 servos, and a HobbyKing multirotor control board? I have and it does so without even getting warm. It's almost like cheating with it being installed on my flat foam Extra 300.
Kevin, no, this is a simple SUPPO ESC. with only simple programming done with the TX. The default is Lipo and brake off. but can be changed to NiCad and brake on by using the SUPPO ESC instructions located here in the "Files" tab. Great little ESC for planes but not for multirotors. The processing speed is not fast enough and can burn out motors. Hope this helps!
My camera plane has this ESC in it and uses the HK control board to control the aileron, elevator and rudder. All the ESC does here is power the board. It does not receive information from the control board. Here it is in action on a windy day over capotol lake in Olympia WA.
from what i've been reading and other questions i've posted this isn't a suitable ESC for the motor i'm using. this is a good ESC and I have 2 birdie ESC's (1*20a and 1*90a) and the quality is excelent
Rubber duck it is meant for a plane. But it will only go forward. Well unless you put a 2 pole rotor switch on two of the 3 wires. Then you can use a servo to remotely switch fwd and rev. I hope this helps.
This esc uses one of the most common instructions out there. It's basically a SUPPO esc. Find the manual for SUPPO. They're easy to program and very useful. Way better than the limited supersimple series.
This ESC looks very similar to HobbyKing SS series. Will see whether it has same issues :) Hopefully it works fine with 2S batteries unline HK SS ESC.

I got one and tempted to use it for a Bixler. When setting up the controls of the airplane, the ESC burned. Upon opening the ESC, I found the soldering of the circuit board were very bad. There were 2 legs shortaged and one leg was broken. It could be just my bad luck but the QC is not up to the standard for sure.
