TURNIGY marine ESCs are built with USA IR mosFETs for long run times and less heat. Boat escs have a different requirement to air or car escs. Their need for sustained high-amp draw makes plane escs unsuitable and car escs with large amp spike capability, unnecessary. Thats why TURNIGY marine escs are designed purely for boats, and coated in anti-static then water resistant laquer to prevent shorting should the esc get wet. They can handle sustained high amp/volt loads and handle heat better than a car or plane esc.
What makes this ESC better than others? -Well designed MCU, with efficient code makes for faster sync and accurate timing.
-Fast clock cycle MCU combined with efficient code means 100,000rpm cpu cycle* -Efficient FETs reduce heat and deliver sustained switching at high amp/voltage. -Well designed PCB (6 layer) and circuit diagram handles high-amp without burnout. -Large motor comptability. Smooth starts, linear throttle curve.
-Active water cooled heatsink that actually works.

Hello, I buy this esc and 4 times my boat (Miss Geico) runs good, at the 5 run my boat came slower until don't run any more, aparently the humedity went inside the esc and made short circuit, these esc are not sealed, now I buy a Turnigy Aquastar 120A will see what happens with this new one.
They never come fully sealed. Go to an electronics shop and ask for a spray to avoid humidity. If you live in USA you can buy corrosion X. Spay your ESC with it and it will handle humidity better.
Also try to make your boat as waterproof as you can
Jonny- I just got thru with my Aquastar 120 and the cooling is ****. Make a cooling plate out of aluminum with 2- 1/8" pipes about the length of the fets. Plate is same size. Use J B Weld to hold 1/8" pipes to aluminum plate and then use Artic Ice on top of fets ( light coat ). I also sprayed Corrosion - X to water proof and is now drying in window sill for a day and will put heat shrink on tomorrow. The caps are 35v 560uF and 4 in number.
Hi folks, I am now getting confused. I want to run the 120A marine esc with a 3660SL with a 3180kv rating and a 3 cell pack. I am new to boating so some help is needed. I cannot afford to throw money away on esc's that do not work for my setup.
Andre- Motor kv is to high for 3S. Find a 2650kv in the 3660SL and run 3S will be close to the sweet spot. The esc and motor will run less amps and run cooler with low kv and higher voltage. The torque will be better too. Make sure your lipos are at least 40c or better and lipos will run cooler.
Hi, can anyone help me out, i am running 6s in my boat, i have a programming card, which i have set values, but can someone tell me the timing range i should put in? my boat seems to be going like 30 klms an hr, should be doing way over 100 klms? any help with set up, i will credit, thanks
Well Jack if i may throw my two cent here..your problem seem like your esc can't carry your setup..this is bcoz of this esc run on 6s only good with 2 pole motor..further more u are running with 3 blade prop which is heavier for the esc..the timing is for the motor to run smooth which is 15.00 is the standard factory setting.most of the 2-4 pole motor is good with 15.00 n below..
With two blade your playtime will be longer of coz u know that..but to use it with 6s I dont think so bcoz ur motor is 4 pole..this esc doesn't tolerate very well with 6s 4 pole motor..I tried it so many times n done everything n u dont waste ur time doing it just can't handle it..just try to safe ur time fren lol..but u can try it with 2 pole motor if u still one to run 6s with this esc. ..it will work.as long the max amp of the motor not exceed minus 20% from 120 contantof this esc..
Lol..manufacturer always give the minimum setup that always will end up frying the component..but for 6s 180t is the best deal in term of price not to say sizes ya..how ever just make sure your choice of batt is sufficient for the esc..i hope ur 3s 5400mh is 35c or higher ..
More then ok..max i try is x45 1.4 run time less then 7 min with 2200kv 4 pole 4s..my second mono also with this esc, 1900kv ( 2 pole ) with plastic prop 3 blade run time less then 5min...motor was very hot so i reduce prop saiz back to 45mm two blade with 4s..
i got a copper blade, 42ml, that should work ok on 6s i think

This ESC working perfectly with 2s lipo battery. It starts very fast, no lag. It have main programing abilities, a lot of types of timing. Very powerful 3A 6v BEC. It is the best ESC which I have. I recommend it for everyone.

I forgot to say that it is waterproof and it have amazing water cooling system which is very low weight. And it haves very huge capacitors which helps to start faster.
The version HC is shipping now has aluminium watercooling tubes, and smaller capacitors: 390 piko Farads 35V.
All wires are 12AWG.

This ESC is great. I highly recommend as a replacement for the SV27 ESC. Makes the motor 10 times smoother at low throttles.

These have great performance, and actually put out more power than they are rated for. Mine is running a 580L sized motor in a 32" mono boat hull. Even after it was fully submerged i let it dry out and it work flawlessly.
