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.

Just put one on my newly scratch built camera plane for stability. Flew it in some fairly strong winds too. These ESCs work great for airplanes with multirotor control boards. Some ESCs wont work at all. Happy flying!

I used this ESC on my Flying Stop Sign as well with a 1200kv motor and an 8x4.5 prop and it flies great!

This looks quite a bit like the turnigy plush/hobbywing flyfun, can anyone confirm? If so, I would assume that the same programming card would work?

I might be wrong or specs are, it says that the plush is 1G heavier, slightly larger and does 4s

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.

No Question, just wanted to tell everyone that I've just uploaded instructions for this ESC. It's pretty simple. Hope this helps!

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

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.
