BEC IS A MUST! ESC is working great, thus far, on a MIA EZ 2.0 1:4 Ultralight .

Go to the HK SS 40-50A ESC and click on the files tab for the set up.

Hi Morphine...I couldnt help not noticing what you had said about the LSH's. I do agree with you. All the LHS's are a rip off MADE in China...What Isnt made in China now a component wise we can forget about determining where things are being just a wild goose chase...back to my point. At my local hobby shop I see your typical Eflite and CC products which i use to buy before hobbyking electronics gained my full confidence. They work and then they also fail too. Support from my LHS went as far as, hey you can try buying another one because you opened the bag and you have no proof of proper Whats more is my LHS sells these unmarked yellow high amp esc's...looks like RC timer ESC's and I bet they are direct clones of these HK esc's and birdies.....LHS tries to mark them up to 35 USD to 50USD.....and they dont know a thing about programming them...and give me a run around saying these are made locally and not like the ones offshore even though they look identical...I got tired of being lied to and ripped its payback...and Now I still feel like I learn more because HK allows me to do more reasearch by reading these reviews and doing more research of my own....the investment like you say is on the order of fractions.....well worth the lesson no matter pass or fail...HK all the way

Running this ESC on a SkyFun powering through hextronic UBEC with an 1100 GWS lipo. Sparing everyone the boring data let me just say that this is one nice speed controller on a system drawing 88A continuous at WOT. I am very pleased with it and encourage anyone who is looking for a robust ESC to jump on it before they are gone. Additionally it is a good choice for those of us out there who have been duped into buying C-a-s-t-l-e...... E-F-l-i-g-h-t......high dollar speed controllers from our LHS. Strike back at your Local Hobby Shop for screwing you. Buy two of these bad boys and show them youre the boss. Just make sure it has good airflow and you will be pleased. Remember that it will need power because its BEC OPTO!

So far I would agree with the previous poster; this ESC is very good value for money.

and 5s 5000 25/30 (turnigy) battery.

amps: 57
watts: 1100
thrust 8.2lb
watts/lb: 134.1

Specs for 13 4 (e) prop;
amps: 43

thrust 6.7lb
watts/lb: 128.4

This ESC was purchased for an ultra funjet running 4s 3300 nanotech 35-70C lipos with a HET 2W-25 motor and apc 6X4 prop. Even after programming the ESC, the HET would only sputter and never ran smoothly. I ended up buying a CC 100 ICE lite and everything worked correctly. The ESC may work with other motors, but it definately did not work with the HET.

This ESC is a good value.I have water cooled it and to date it is working well with 55A load in a 40 inch vee hull with a KB-45 for power.I am using 2 5000 2S lipo's in series.

How the heck are we supposed to program this controller? I just ordered and received four of them with NO INSTRUCTIONS of any kind. I also don't see anything here downloadable. This is getting to be a bad habit of Hobbyking selling items without any manual! HELP!
