Designed for planes only, the H-KING ESC are an excellent choice for any plane requiring linear, sharp and reliable throttle response on a 50A ESC. H-KING speed controllers have strict end-of-line QC testing and are SMT (Pick-n-Place) in the same room as the through-hole soldering(wires, capacitor) and packaging is done. Improving quality and reducing contamination and inconsistencies due to transportation. The H-KING Speed Controller includes a 2A BEC (Battery Elminator Circuit) to power your receiver, there is no need to have a seperate receiver battery. The H-KING range of ESC are both economic and reliable. They are pre-setup with LiPo and auto cell detection so you can just plug it in and fly!
I never lost control of the surfaces. The ESC was ****, and died at 1/2 throttle. The ESC wasn't even getting warm, and neiter was the battery. Had several flights on it without any problems. If you read my post, you would know that. I bought another esc on Ebay and all is fine now. Hobby King wanted me to send the esc to them so they could throw it away for me, but I declined and parted it out for the leads and plugs which I used on my new esc. There's no way my little plane was pulling more than 44 amps, unless the motor specs are incorrect.The esc simply had a component failure. Dennis
Mine almost killed my Pitts today. Just lost power 2 minutes or so into a flight. Tried another freshly charged battery, and same deal. I advance the throttle, it starts to go then quits. It worked fine for a week. I have a 3536-6 motor, and im using 2200ma 3S batterys. Don't think I want anymore HK electronics. It wasn't even getting warm on previous flight, and just failed suddenly, Grrrrr...
I can tell ya what happend... To much current draw on the bec! I have a 55 inch wing flying on a 4 cell setup with digital high torque servos. As long as i keep it below 3/4 throttle I have control of the servos, * full throttle no servo control but still have esc control.... You need an external bec budd. :-)
Installed this 50amp HK ESC. Did not change programming. Bound receiver, everything works, but ESC beeps every 30 seconds or so. Single beep. What does this mean and how can I stop it from doing this - its annoying at the least? Thanks.
Mine does the samething from what i have read it is just informing you that the esc is armed and ready to go so you dont accidently move the throttle and hurt yourself. supposedly the beeping stops when the motor is running but I dont listen to it close enough to find out if it is or not. I havent had any problems with it.
great esc for and park flying planes and other medium sized planes

This is a cross post from the motor side
Dollar wise very hard to beat.
A little insight from testing:
H-KING 50A Fixed Wing Brushless Speed Controller
Turnigy nano-tech 1300mah 3S 25~50C
219 Watts 21.6 Amps
280 Watts 26 Amps
HK Prop 7x4 (can' make out identifiers for brand)
380 Watts 36 Amps
If you want it simple and sweet, grab one of these rascals and go for it. Checked connections and all was good, had to change the stock battery side (I use "Deans" style) if I were to upgrade to the newer ends it would truly be plug and play.

This ESC is simple enough to use. But if you program it, beware:
I had a problem after successfully programming this ESC the first time. I went through the programming steps as discussed in the single leaflet manual. I even used the default settings. I just wanted to go through the motion. After the last step, I was able to successfully arm and work the throttle. But, after power cycling it, it would not initialize again. It would give off an alarm consisting of 3 quick ascending tones that repeat over and over. This happens just by plugging in a motor and a 3S or 4S battery and no receiver. I even tried to plug it back into the original receiver and tried to get it back into programming mode. No luck.
Almost added to the local land fill. Then I decided to give it another try.
I have been using 3S and 4S LIPOs with it successfully until it freaked out after the first attempt at programming it. Finally, I plugged in a 2S battery, and it initialized successfully. After that, I was able to successfully use the 3S and 4S batteries again. The only issue with it now is that it gives off one extra beep when counting the battery cells. 2S gives 3 beeps, 3S gives 4 beeps and 4S gives five beeps. It was giving off the correct beeps before it went nuts and recovered.
No problem with me with the extra beep (more for the money), as long as it keeps working. I have not tried it in a re
I am using this ESC with a D2826-6 2200kv motor, and 7-6 prop on my lightened Me-163 Komet from Hobby King, and am very pleased. It doesn't get hot, and works flawlessly! Inexpensive ESC for small electrics.
