I have 6 of these on a HAL hexacopter and all 6 have been fine for over 50 flights. Ive ground tested them at 16a burst and they do fine as long as there is air passing over them. Also tried them on 4s but didnt push them too hard, but it did function on 4s without burning up. Gonna upgrade to the 30a but im getting my moneys worth out of these first.
Hoy dia probe le mio, y tampoco me funciono,al conectarlo me chatean los servos, que son los HXT 900, receptor Fsky de 8 canales y motor Turnigy de 1088 kv, la verdad estoy muy decepsionado con este producto, no lo recomiendo para nada.
Today we probe mine, and I do not work out, to connect the servo vibrate, which are the HXT 900, receptor 8-channel Fsky Turnigy motor, 1088 kv, the truth I am very unhappy with this product, do not recommend it at all.
Hi! Ive bought three of theese and all three were defective. When you try to hook up even just one servo, the reciever dies. Anyone else had this problem?http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/ima ges/em_cry.gif
I didn't have that problem and I loved mine. I wonder if it could be a program setting for your brushless motor. Check your programming guide and change the motor settings, but it is possible that it might not even be compatible with your brushless motor.
it has LM2940L onboard wich are actually can make 2.5A by datasheet, but take a look too specs, its only 1A, so yo can see that this ic is too weak to power more than one little servo, you better buy 3-5A BEC for 3-6buck to power all stuff you need with well filtered dc. i have 7 of this on my hexacopter and powering all control board and radio sensor from one of this little guys, but it takes only about 70mah
it will run in 8mhz mode only, if you want to get full resolution then you need 2cell because the main IC which are atmega8 to work with installed onboard ceramic resonator which are 16mhz need to be powered from 5V, no variants.
Bugs it is like this the ESC require at least 7.4 volts (well 6 volts) so as the low power fail safe does not kick in. Under this voltage the motor will cut out to save power for you radio gear. This is why the listing says Battery: 2-4 Cell Lipo / 5-12 Cell Ni-XX. Not the higher voltage from Ni-XX needed due to less power. I hope this helps
Dreamcatcher please come on I am so sorry about but it is not that hard. As sooon as you plug your servo the receiver goes into bind mode. It is because you are plugging the servo cable up side down. Black should not be on top. On black red and white, white should be on top. I hope this helps.
Last week I received two Mystery 12A (Blue Series) ESCs and each one has same defect: the BEC cuts out as soon as you try to operate the servo(s), and then the whole ESC goes dead. If you start with the motor speed control, the ESC works, but it's when operating the servo(s) that overpowers the BEC. Subsequently the whole ESC shuts down and the receiver goes into failsafe mode and the ESC gently beeps repeatedly. This means it's still being powered, but simply not able to handle the current, whi
My Mystery 12A BEC Powered up and did my Pre-Flight operated the Elevator Servo and the Aileron servo all after the Motor goes thru the 3 beeps and a tone and when I power up the Motor it winds up and then cuts down to a Idle then shuts off, swaped out ESC's and now the Motor works and my Servo's twitch, Pissed and do not by a Mystery ESC.
Exact same issue: servos are erratic. Even a single hxt500 will not work. Reciever blinks and servo doesn't move properly. Add more than one servo and they freeze at the end of their travel. Motor starts up and seems to work ok, but servos/receiver can't be powered. I checked every setting in programming mode (including resest to default) and nothing changes this behavior. Unusable.
Dominick have you firstly tried just using a battery on ther RC set. Just to prove all is working well. If it is then plug ESC back in but remove the red wire. This will disable you BEC in the ESC so you can still use it. I hope this helps. Also make sure you main power battery is fully charged.
I just hooked mine up with 3 hxt500 servos..
When I move my servos vigorously, my receiver starts to flicker like its loosing power and all my servos go crazy including throttle.
It doesn't happen when I use another ESC. Must I set something, or I just received a bugged one.

No the esc does not come with a JST connector nor plugs for motor. I recommend not using any connectors to connect motor to esc if you're flying light, you'll save 5g. Just solder together and tape insulator.
I have a question, I have an firebird commander 2 that I am changing over from their board to one I made with just a servo and esc and receiver, but I want to use the motor that came with it, only trouble is the motor has only two wires, can it be done with a regular esc or do I need bec ? thanks for the help
This depends very much on the servo type(s) you are using and what kind of model you are using. Check the servo specs to see what their power consumption is (and don't forget to leave suitable margin for the receiver as well...).
Depends on the loading on them and the servos - HXT 900 servos draw more than 1/2 Amp when stalled so you really wouldn't want to go more than 2 if you are operating near the limit of there power - 3 if the model is lightly loaded and the surfaces are free. It really depends on the servos though as different servos have differing draw - the only real way to know is to do some testing by loading the servos you intend to use and see what the amperage is or if the reciever browns out (drops off its
depends on the servo, i have sucessfully used 3 of the HXT900's on a 1 amp bec, but thats pushing the limit. other servos draw more current, so it depends on what servos you are using. it will work better on 2S than 3S as it has less heat to get rid of
It depends on the servos. Standard size servos usually draw about 1 amp, 2-3A if they're powerful, so usually 1 average standard size servo for 1A BEC. 2-3 micro servos would be fine as well. It will not be enough power for large servos.
Are you sure your using the right manual? One day I couldn't figure out the audible tones for my speed controller, so I brought my wifes musical ear out to the garage. She looked at the manual, and then at my speed controller and wisely said, the tones would match if you had a manual for this speed controller. ohhhhh :) I ordered multiple brands and opened them all at once and confused the packaging... whoops.
I just don't use it anymore, it's useless. Ordered same ESC (but HK-brand on it) once again, works perfectly. Programming tones match, makes it easy. Mystery ESC always shuts down at full throttle not programmable = piece of ****
At the beginning mine has not started the motor. After programming it is now working. But the throttle response has any delay and I can not program that. The instructions coming with the ESC does not describe exactly that ESC. There comes no melody fitting for that (in the manual VVVVVVV). Can somebody tell me how to program it ?
