Does this come with the Bullet Connectors already on? And if it does is there a way I could connect the bullet connectors to a JST connector for a battery? Thanks!!

Como ativar o freio desse esc?
 Galarda 4 points
Olá* Denis, faç*a isso sem o motor acoplado ao ESC e isole bem os terminais do ESC para nã*o fechar curto (só* por precauç*ã*o). Este ESC tem trê*s configuraç*õ*es. A primeira é* para proteç*ã*o das baterias LIPO (sub tensã*o). A segunda é* para utilizar baterias Ni. A terceira e a que você* perguntou é* para ativar/desativar o freio. Faç*a o seguinte para acessar o menu: Coloque o acelerador para cima e ligue a bateria. Você* vai escutar 1 "beep" duas vezes (é* o menu da tensã*o), depois 2 "beeps" duas vezes (é* o menu da escolha do tipo de bateria) e por fim 3 "beeps" duas vezes (é* o menu do freio). Para ativar o item abaixe o acelerador entre os "beeps" do menu escolhido. Para desativar basta esperar a repetiç*ã*o dos "beeps" e abaixar o acelerador somente no final da repetiç*ã*o dos "beeps" do menu escolhido.

99% of ESC's won't come with any connectors, that means you would have to order some XT60's or whatever you use separately.

Good ESC. Peak measured current draw with my C20 Motor was 12 Amps. Very decently priced. LImited programming but can be done through the tx sticks. Good value for money. Recommended for indoor flying for model weight 120-200 gms.

This is a no frills ESC that works great. I have tried it with both inrunner and out runner and both worked equally well. Just cant beat the price on these esc's!!!

I ordered two of them for first tests because I want to use them in a little quadcopter project. They work very smooth with the AX-2308N1100 motor from Hobbycity. Unfortunetely, the two delivered ESCs are not identical with respect to the firmware: the beep sequence at startup is different and they have different working curves. Nevertheless, I have one in my ordering pipeline and will order two additional ones for that attractive price. So I hope to have success in finding a good combination for my quadcopter project.

Don't judge the super simple escs by the price! They work. The true value of these controllers is the ease of use. I have many other more expensive esc's, and the super simple actually have had fewer problems. If you try one you'll get more of them.
