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.

tq so much for the info Sham, i akan tgk t 180 tu, regarding the motor tu..saya belasah je sbb max amp dia is 27v..still ok kot lol..lg satu Sham,since awk pakai motor yg sama kv n main 4s,mcm mana saya nk buat dia laju at least mcm 6s? sya cuba pakai 47 prop 3 blade.running very hot on motor but laju n stabil, so i reduce to 45 prop tp tk puas..any idea nk bg laju Sham? lol
owh..ok..motor awak rated up to 27v..it's a beast..hahaha..memang sukar utk dpt speed yg sama menggunakan boat/saiz yg sama..just to share, jika voltage tinggi better performance with smaller prop utk mengelak overheating & terbakar. gi satu, pastikan prop kita sharpen n balanced (S&B) too.. My Arowana reached 50mph on 4S with 43mm metal S&B prop..the best performane saya dpt on 4S..Cuba play with prop size, awak boleh mencapai speed yg awak inginkan..
So ur boat running on 6S ya..oke, 6S awak perlukan esc T180A PRODUCT ID: TR-M-180A..it should handle up to 6S for real :) ramai racers menggunakannya..ianya lebih kuat dan tahan lasak. Saya juga menggunakannya dengan 3974 2200kv motor on 4S on my 31" Arowana mono..pernah seketika line tube (water inflow) tertanggal ketika running on full speed..tetapi esc tetap cool down (my luck) or may be esc ini memang lebih berkualiti dan tahan lasak..recommended :) Btw, Wan jika sayang tidak silap KV motor awak sesuai utk 4S and if 6S ianya akan membebankan segala elektronik awak..KV untuk 6S seharusnya dalam lingkungan 1600-1900kV..ini yg saya tahu dan baca dlm laman web-laman web..btw thanks for the credit pal..hope this help.
I just burn my esc just now, same here brother, it's say that 2-6s unfortunately no,,,, I'm using the same 2200kv...guess that hobbyking must return 2-4s max on this esc...Shamrin, bakar habis saya nya esc...
Sorry to hear that Wan..may you running it too long & tidak cek temperature..memang esc ini rated up to 6S TETAPI secara teori sahaja dan experienced boater says ianya terhad up to 4S setup sahaja..mcm mana dgn bot awak? hope it's ok.
dose anyone know what connectors are best suited for this esc as i have plently of xt60 spare but they are only rated for 60amp can xt60 handel 2 2cell 5000mah in series, or do i need some different connecters
has anyone else found the water jacket tubes on this have been loose?....had a friend run his and had water run through his boat due to the tubes not being done up tight....these are meant to be factory fitted as heat shrink covers all of the connection....cheers
would you be able to use with a motor with the following attributes? (turnigy aquastar EP800)
Input voltage:2-5 S Lipo
4 pole inrunner.
If this is not an appropriate Speed controller what do you recommend? And what is a possible battery to match
If im not mistaken your stated motor has 100A current draw..corret me if im wrong..so it peaks current draw should be around 120A..if i were you i will pick higher than 120A esc or the T180A esc would be better and safer.. Just to share, i got Aquastar 3974-2200kv running on 4S with these T120A esc, but the esc cannot handle the motor current draw (100A) and it spoiled my esc so easily..then i bought the T180A for replacement..and the problem solved and everything go smoothly..sorry for my english..hope this help..
Thanks Shamrin. But I do not manage to get the backforward with my boat. I have a turnigy motor HXT 36-56 2700 kv with a turnugy programming card and I cannot have the backforwrdof the boat, I manage to have only the forward. May I suppose that theESC does not work properly? Because I cannot get the backwarding even without the programming card.
Thanks a lot for any reply
Really, im using programming card when setting up my esc too and it so easy..anyway, using program card you have to set the value into 2 (if we using the same program card), so your motor/boat will move forward & reverse.. Is your motor is for cars or boats? if yes, surely it can move rotate forward & reverse..,try another motor, just ot make sure it is not your motor faulty.. Btw, how many channel is you RX 2 or 3? may be you forget to set the Rx accordingly..enable the reverse options..hope this help.
Secara teori yg saya tahu, bateri/lipo with higer C rating lebih bagus dan selamat kerana ianya akan supply Amp according to esc Amp..
Contohnya T120A ini, ianya memerlukan tidak kurang dari 120A current draw dari bateri/lipo, so u need at least 4000mah 30C (120A current draw), tapi lebih selamat jika 4000mah 40C (160A) so lipo tidak begitu berkerja keras utk supply 120A..harap awak faham..hehe..Happy boating man..
salam Shanmrin, apa khabr? dulu punya problem dh setel, btul lah lipo punya hal, tq.anyway psl esc 120 ni, cooling tube yg bottom right tu maknanya kalau esc tu face kita mcm dlm pictures kat ats tu, maknanya yg bwh selari ngan words 120 tu lah ya? tq sham
W'salam Wan..sori lama tah online..saya ok, boat saya ja sentiasa cari masalah..hehe..awak apa khbar? anyway, yup betul..jika esc kita seperti didalam pix kat atas tu..inlet water dari sana, so kita punya esc akan menerima proper cooling..hope this help.
Is your motor not responding? if yes, make sure you plug the esc on the right place/port of your receiver(2nd from bottom) or try to resolder your three wire connectors, may be it is not properly connected..hope this help.
Yup..they are both the same..but if u placed ur esc standing sideway (one of the cooling tube was at the bottom right) u better put the water inlet at the bottom one so ur esc will receiving proper/better cooling(it will always full of water before it go thru the outlet tube)..hope i make it clear for u..
Sya rasa btul sgt apa yg awk ckp tu,maby lipo batt saya ada masalah,sbb kalau nk ikut kan motor,esc n batt specc mmg takde masakah ye tak..hopefully lepas try batt baru nanti boat boleh jln balik mcm biasa..lg satu sya mmg tk boleh reply blk setiap conversation kita ni..kena buat yg baru..so fb saya sham wan_baggy*yahoo.***** kalau sng2 add saya kita boleh borak2... Tq so much sham happy new year...
Sham,bukan sbb esc cut- off ke sbb burst current dia only 240a..lg satu my batt mmg boleh charge penuh..i really not sure kalau nk beli yg baru, i terpaksa pastikan dulu apa problem dia yg sebenar esc or batt Sham..maklumlah lol....tq Sham..
Wan,i fixed my problem yesterday man..i did lot of things, membeli esc baru, menukar setting esc seperti yg awak buat tapi masih tidak berubah..then at last menukar lipo lain..then saya dapati masalah sebenar saya adalah dengan lipo..lipo saya memang boleh caj penuh tapi run full speed only last 1 second (may be ada cell yg telah rosak). Setelah menggunakan lipo lain, its back to normal :).
So if u have any other lipos, just try it..btw my advice, u should have more than 1 lipo Wan..may be by these, boleh menyelesaikan masalah awak juga..hope this help, have a try & gd luck Wan & happy new yr.
Normally for me, timing for 2 poles motor is 3deg of 0deg..83a amp draw should be ok with these esc..anyway, if set cut-off langsung tak boleh main, meaning ur lipos or esc is getting old..tapi jika lipo boleh charged penuh, so bukan masalah lipo..sudah cuba menggunakan lipo lain?hope this help wan..salam.
ShamrinHM tq for reply me, one more thing, i only can run full speed for a few second, my batt is 4s 35c-70c..esc burst current is 240amp..is it bcoz 240a burst current? Do i need bigger esc or my batt is to week to supply current..low voltage cut off has been change to no protection but still cannot full speed like first 10 second..after that it runs constent current speed...tq again friend..
I experienced this too..same lipo 4S 35-70C nano-tech..full speed only last for few sec on my Aquastar 2200kv..but when i switched the motor into SK3 1900kv, its run smoothly on full speed..so may be the esc cannot handle the motor amp draw may be due to the Aquaztar max amp draw was 100A (basically peak at 120A)..btw please do not run you lipos without cut-off my friend..may be you already know the reason right..anyway, what is your motor specs? Amp draw?

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.
