Recently buy 2 of this and one comes to me with sensor cable with wires all inverted !!! The esc burns the section that control sensored motors and now can run sensorless motors only. Control your sensor cable if correcly assembled at first, put connectors in front of you and colors sequence must be the same.
I am thinking of using this ESC with a "Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 5055-280kv Brushless Outrunner Motor" and two "ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 3S1P 20C" batteries to make a electric Longboard controlled qith Arduino.
Would it be possible to use this ESC? I am afraid it doesn't work.
Thank you very much. I need your Help!
I received today. This is copy of XERUN120A ver2.1. Beware:The HobbyKing HKSS programming card for HK 150A ESC is not suitable for this ESC.

I love this ESC. it's small and light and handles 3s easily. To program you will need an older Turnigy programming card, it works perfect and gives you 10 different settings to adjust (check out my video on programming). Overall i would buy another X-car 120 amp ESC.

Ottima esc. credo che ne prenderò altre. qualita' prezzo inconcepibile.
La consiglio a chiunque.
This is a very nice overall ESC for the 1/10 class, identical with the Hobbywing XERUN V2.1 version. Tested with almost all the suitable Hobbywing's firware and is working fine, the only thing i have to mention is that you have not an option to change rotation on a sensored motor with any of the firmware and the HKSS programming card is NOT working regardless of Hobbyking's statement on suitable accessories. So, although it is a very good ESC for the price , i will give only 4 stars as it came without user manual as well. I have already uploaded Hobbywing's manual,for anyone interested,you can find it on the "files" tab as: "HOBBYWING 60/120A v2.1 manual".
