I love these ESC))) They perfectly manage my Mars rover. they have the function "reverse without pause." perfect for tanks and all-terrain vehicles.

If you're looking for a basic brushed ESC. This is the thing. Works really well although I might have had some minor twitching in servos. (Not sure if this is what to blame) Didn't even warm when I drew a bit less than 10A through it using 3S. BEC is not "5.6v" but a 5.0v one. It might give 5.3v when unloaded but it drops to 5.0v when you hook up the receiver.

Really? It can use 3S?
 Henri 6 points
What I`ve been experimenting, yes. At least it doesnt fry immediately when you hook it to the battery. I only used it on 3s for under an hour. Now its powering my little brothers mini revo on 2s. Doesnt overheat even in hard use. (Other than the stock non lvc 2.5xl which fried after a few rides)

Go to the Files tab at the bottom of the International page for the product. You will see the download there.

I have used this ESC for an old rc car which ran on two 7 volt brushed motors. As the ESC could only go as high as 2s, I connected the motors in series, which led to a current of ca6 volt. This has worked great for me and the ESC is not creating any heat.

On 3s they also work fine

Ok i took the plunge and bought six of these esc's to replace some others i had, all setup in various tamiya cars and buggies, i use lipo batteries so having the built in cut-off was a big selling point to me and at such a great price i would recommend them to anyone, easy to program. Ive been buying more and more from hobbyking, always great products and excellent prices. Keep them coming guys.

Install it in my old Tamiya Wild dagger truck with 2 x 540 brushed motors, and i works like a charmed, just out of the "box". The old school speed control went up in smoke. :-)

Best regards
