Plush 60A Brushless Speed Controller The plush series ESC are a very good quality controller. They have a broad range of programming features and a smooth throttle response compared to other BESCs in the same price range. This BESC can handle 3A continuous current which is great for larger planes with bigger servos.
User Programmable, both via controller and optional programming card. The programming card is an excellent item as it instantly tells the user the current settings and with a few simple clicks of the buttons, the user can change the settings and have graphical reassurance of those changes. The programming card is an excellent Item and simple to use!
The speed controller measures the angle, by sensing voltage induced, and changes voltage from one phase to the next when necessary. The fact that the maximum rpm is very high only means that it is able to do it very fast, but of course it works with slower motors
I using the 60amp plush to run a Turnigy G46 with a 4400 ma 5 cell 20c lipo. The esc does seem to be getting hot and I am not sure how I can tell if it is too hot. I seem to have good airflow over it, but am still not sure if this is safe. I can touch the esc for about 7 seconds.
It wouldn't be overkill IMO as it's always best to have an ESC bigger than what you need rather than have one that is close to the max amps,but you might be better off with a Turnigy Plush 40amp i'm thinking.
It will not be a waste of money, if you think it is to big, it can generally never be to big in a a amp sense. The more amp the esc can handle the better, and less chance of it burning.
I personally have had good experiences with the Trust line of esc's. No idea what others think of them, but I have had no one break on me.
Just buy a different 40amp esc,and look at what people say about any you choose to look at,if the good feedback out weighs the bad ,the buy the sucker and try it. Not like it will cost but 15-30 dollars. Plus i bought brand name esc's before and so happened to be a bad one ,but that does not mean all are bad. I had some cheap esc's last a long time as well.
You will be fine with this one Amis as you could use this one until you got the Plush 40amp one you really want,then you could use this in another model even if you don't have a use for it after wards you soon will if you stay in the hobby.
Not to worry as the Plush 40 amp one is now in stock just in case you didn't know mate,as i just looked for you. :-)
It all depends what motor's you are running,look at motor specs on google,then educate your self into knowing if the esc is compatible. I learned every thing rc by forums and mechanical engineering knowledge.
All Plush ESC's are compatible with Naza, probably bigger than you need though, quads per motor usually use less power than a plane. I havePlush ESC's on quads and hex's with Naza FCU's, they work well.
I have recently purchased Turnigh 60 A ESC and have turnigy nano tech 5.0 with 5000 mah 45-90 c discharge. the connectors are not matching and more over the battery seems to be very heavy.
Secondly i also have turnigy nano tech 2.2 2200 mah with 25-50 c discharge how can i charge it with accucell 8150 turnigy charger
Yes. You can charge almost any Lipo with that charger. It is a very good unit - far less expensive than some of the big-name chargers but works just as good. I have two of them in use for three years with no problem.
I am looking to purchase an ESC with a BEC rated at 60 AMP and I have read through and I think the TURNIGY Plush 60amp Speed Controller fits the bill but I got confused when I read this last sentence in the description Supported motor speed for all TURNIGY ESCs is* (Maximum): 210000 RPM (2 poles), 70000 RPM (6 poles), 35000 RPM (12 poles). What does that really mean. I have already purchased the motor listed below. Can anyone tell me I am making the right choice with the ESC? Thanks

I that your Will you wrote there? What's your confusion? The plush series of ESC's are the Best ESC's you can buy at hobbyking. This ESC is able you spin the ElectriFly RimFire .32 faster than it is design to spin, so maximum speed won't pose any limitation.
Forget what the rpm's say,all you should care about is the voltage. The voltage times the kv equals the rpm. So if it is 1000kv motor and u can use a 4s lipo (which is 14.8v then the motor will spin at 14,800 rpm. Lower kv motors usually use higher cell lipo count,and higher kv motors use lower cell lipo count. Ultimately resorting too close to same rpm's. But the lower kv will provide more torque at same rpm due to higher voltage lipo's. No motor is going to spin at 210,000rpm either so i do not know why they put that.
yes you are pushing alot of of volts you may even need a voltage ragulator. If you fry this in flight you will have not be able to glide in. but with a extra rx batt. it least you will have power to servos to dead stick in. V.B.
“*This BESC can handle 3A continuous current which is great for larger planes with bigger servos”*. So, integrated SBEC has more then enough power for your servos and receiver. I think there is no point for external SBEC. You has to use Power Distributor and battery duplication if you need high reliability power system.
I fly an 57" MX2 with this esc on 6s. I use the internal bec. That runs 3off 25g servos and 1 off standard, with no issues. if you did want a separate power supply you doulf just use a 6.6 LiFe battery? The internal becs are good as i also fly a trex 500 with 4 25g servos with out a separate power supply.
Hello! I despretly need help. I`ve bought six of these for my hexa but there is a big issue. There is no compatibility with DJI NAZA. Do you know where can I find a propper firmware to upgrade them?
Marko, hvala. Ja sam iz Ljubljane. Puno radim, tako da imam malo vremena ali da, mož*da ako mi treba pomoć*, svakako budem na vaš*em forumu. Ma, sad smo se dogovorili sa Hobby Kingom, da im vratim kontrolere i kabel, pa budem nabavio baš* takve, koji ć*e raditi na Nazi. Pozdrav.
Hola a todos, tenia este esc funcionandoa a la perfeccion en mi funjet, pero le he cambiado el motor y ya no funciona. Se lia a pitar y no consigo que funcione. No tengo la tarjeta de programació*n y no se que hacerle mas. El motor funciona pues lo he probado con otro regulados y va.
COMMENT PROGRAMMER TES ESC AVEC LE KK2.0: ok bien important, tu enleve tes helice avant tout. un coup tout le systeme brancher tu dois etre 2 personnes pour programer les esc, tu monte le throttle de ta manette a fond et tu lalume , ensuite tu appuis sur le bouton 1 et 4 du kk 2 et en les gardan enfoncer tu branches la battery . tu entendra un bip , tu dois garder 1 et 4 enfoncer , tu baisse le throttle et tu entendra un autre bip , tu relache les bouton 1 et 4 et voilla .
After experimenting with this controller, four of my 3S1P packs (3XZippy 40C 4000 1XZippy-H 30-40C 3500) are pretty useless.
Before using this controller I used KontroniK Smile 45-6-18 for years without any problem.
The controller is now set to "Timing Mode=High" and cannot draw more than 100W at 10.7A from these packs while it can draw up to 360W at 37.5A from older PolyRC packs that were not damaged.
Could it be that by using improper Timing mode I damaged the packs? Can I still save the packs? The three 40C were bought less than two years ago (11/June/2011)
This is the newest version out. It is designed to run conservatively at 60A with a 80A burst rating. This ESC can definitly handle those numbers without a problem. It can be used with 2 cell to 6 cell batteries and the UBEC is rated for 5V @ 3A. The dimensions were right on spec. I threw it on the scale when I received it, measured out to 59.6g, & 80x30x14mm.
I'm running this on my 60mm EDF Jet with a Hoffman Magnetics Mighty Mite I bought here on HobbyKing. I use a FlightMax 4S 2650mAh 40C for 106A and over 1500W. This jet is FAST! Clocked over 130mph. Note: If you're thinking about getting a Turnigy ESC, spend the extra dollar and get the PLUSH. You will not regret it. Worth every penny. Also, you can do any programming you might need with the Turnigy BESC Programming Card. Again, like all Turnigy products, very easy to use. Enjoy!

A good esc.The price helps us in the hobby who are on a budget and looking for a bargain.This esc is one of those gems......
Im using it in my edf f-16, drawing 48 amps, no problems........
Oh, and my tip of the day is get the programming card with it...............

Only downgraded to 4 stars due to the heat-sink being wrapped inside the heat-shrink cover.
Mated this with my HXT 35-42C 1000kV motor and 4S2P 2600mAh LiPo, for 60A / 800W power!
ESC handled all of this with ease. VERY linear throttle response. Switching BEC is excellent and handled 4 servos in 3D flight mode without trouble. Sure beats worrying about a linear BEC or a separate BEC.

Was surprised when I received this as what showed up had OEMRC printed on it! Nevertheless I tried it out in my Electro Telemaster (80" WS) with a TowerPro Brushless Motor 3520-7 (a great motor). I was spinning a 13 X 7 APC E prop and 5S1P A123 Pack pushing 16.5V @ 2300Mah. What a tremendous setup! I can fly for about 25 mins with throttle management (the Tele is a floater) and I have power to go vertical if I want, all for a great price. Smooth throttle curve, easy programming and doesn't freak out on a123 cells..what else can I say?

This ESC is AWESOME!!! Running on the front of a Hyperion Super Chipmunk 70E (3200g) with a Turnigy 50-55B, 14x7 E prop, and HXT D9 G2 4100mAh 5S. Lift off in about 30 feet, and will climb for DAYS...
Can fly scale with tons of power to spare. The guys all freaked out when I had my "vintage" plane hovering at half throttle then pulling out into the heavens!
Also running on smaller, lighter Extra 330s (1500g) with a power 25 and 4s battery overpropped, but everything still comes down cool.
