i want to use my 3s 950mah lipo on this on my rockcrawler, i recon it will work as the mah is low, anyone disagree? no? good.
 henry 24 points
well this esc can only take a 2s lipo, it's not really the mah thats makes the difference it's the volts because a 2s puts out 7.4 volts and a 3s make 11.1 volt and the voltage over load would be a problem. so in short it would probably blow up.

What be a suitable lipo for these S.C I want to use them in a boat
 petern 104 points
The information given in the speed controller's description states that the maximum is a 2S LiPo. So 7.4 volts is the maximum you can use.

Ok so I have a 1/6 Stuart tank, running two of these with the two 600 6-12v motors and a 9.6v 3700 nimh. Obviously they share the load sometimes. Ran for about 20 minutes of manoeuvring round the house chasing the cats ! :-). ESCs didnt even get warm :-). Going to get higher Erving lower rate motors but as a test very pleased with these !

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
