Plush 30 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. All our BESCs come with a full warranty.
Cont Current: 30A Burst Current: 40A BEC Mode: Linear BEC : 5v / 2A Lipo Cells: 2-4 NiMH : 5-12 Weight: 25g Size: 45x24x11mm 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!
thats perfectly fine
using a higher rating ESC is actually a smarter idea anyways. the 30A just indicates that the ESC can only provide up to 30A current before you start to have problems. so overrating your ESC would be a smart move =]
Hi guys ,
I am using this ESC on my Radjet800 but the problem i have is Full Throttle is on 60/70% stick om my radio , so from 60/70% throttle To 100% will do nothing its just flying on the same speed.
Do i need to set throttle range on this ESC somehow ?
I can set full thottle when i connect the lipo but then the esc will go in a protect mode .
Can someone please help me. I got a multicopter with 4 620kv motors. I now ordered these esc 30amp. No problem. They fit together. The thing i wonder is if i can use a 3s lipo with 4000mah and 20C? I know its a little to small with 4000mah but will it work?
Everything depends on props and how many amps your motors draw. This battery will give you static current equal to 64A (80% of 80A). It give you 16A per motor. You have of course some additional burst current for full throttle case. You have to check how many amps your motors draw during normal flight.
Everything depends on prop. If you use really big prop, then motor will draw even 35A. Inside the discussion panel of this motor, KEITH says: "3s lipo, 11x4.7 SF prop, 6400rpm, 103W, 760g thrust. 3s lipo 12x4.7 SF prop, 5760rpm, 130W, 930g thrust". It means that this motor takes ~9.3A on 3s battery and 11x4.7 SF prop. 12x4.7 SF prop will give you ~11,7A. You have to make some calculations to choice the proper propeller. It looks like there is a possibilities to run your quad on this battery. As I said - everything depends on propeller!
*nimbc: Hi Friend,
I use this esc and I combine with SCM 3223 1550kv brushless motor, 3 blade prop 8x6 size,nano-tech lipo battery 2200mah 3s 35-70 c. for the weight of the aircraft that the weight is 750gr. but my lipo battery gets hot and bloated. can you give advice to me that my battery is not bloated anymore? sorry if my english bad. thank you.
here is your math for your setup.
11.1v x 1550kv = 17205 max rpm no load
You are using a 3 bladed prop which will cause more rotational resistance. you would be better off with a 2 blade 8x6 or even a smaller dia prop in a 6.5 to 7 range. You are drawing a lot of current out of the batteries and need to allow the motor to not work as hard in turning the prop so it is best you prop down a size and perhaps to a two blade setup.
*Kimmerek: Hi friend,
I use nano-tech lipo battery 2200mah 3s 35-70 c. for the weight of the aircraft that the weight is 750gr. along with electric and battery device inside the plane. can you help my friend?thank you.
So your battery is able to give you 77A and 154A burst! It is imposible to overdischarge this battery with this ESC... How old is your battery? It is normal behaviour of old lipos. My last advice is to check the curent between battery and ESC.
We need more information about battery which you use. In my opinion you are using battery with too small discharge rate. How many amps your motor use? For example 1600mah 20C LiPo battery have max current equal to: 1.6 x 20 = 32A. And for this example you cannot use above battery for motor which take more than 25A (80% of max battery current). Give us more data.

Ok, from the start, try using timer, and do not fly that long - battery gets hot because You're overdischarging it, this is the reason for puffing. Should measure Your flight time now, then take off 2 minutes of it, and Your battery should be better :) Trying other ESC timing options might take effect as well.
Can I connect 2 of the ESC´*s BEC in parallel to double de Amp rates for power a HKpilot Mega 2.5? I also have to power a GPS and the telemetry radio system* and the turnigy 9x RX of course.
If I need a separate BEC, which one you will choose?
Hi, unfortunately you cannot double the power using two ESC. If you want to connect two ESCs you have to remove a middle wire (the red one) from one of the ESCs. If you want to increase a power supply for your receiver you have to remove red wire from all ESCs and use an external BEC.
Try this ubec, PRODUCT ID: 5AUBEC it works for me, You can parallel the bec in the esc but it might cause uneven loading of the bec unless you can power the gps and telemetry system by one bec and your FC and Rx with another bec.
Calibrate MIN and MAX throttle signal. You need to do it for each ESC. Refer to manual in download section. I also recommend to use the Turnigy Plush Programming Card to set basic settings for every ESC.
Hi, I have 4x Turnigy Plush 25a on my quad and wondering if I could buy a 30A version as a spare one. The 25A is BO for a while and I would like to order other stuff that may be BO also when the 25A will be available.
Is it ok to mix the 25's with a 30 (in case i have to replace one in the future)?
Hello, I want to try to flash my esc turnigy plush 30Amp to a SIMONK firmeware. Because They work on a quadricopter, and I need more stability.
Question : Is it possible?
Question 2 : How we can do this?
Thanks to help me.
These Esc cannot be flashed with simonk as they have silab chips not atmel, but there is an alternate firmware similar to simonk that you can flash these esc with, they work just as good as simonk. There is a link I have mentioned about 5 post down that shows you how to flash these plush esc.
Thanks for that info bro ! I have 10 of this still on packaging and just got no time to do it.I think I read about SK info from somewhere to flash this esc's. Sorry for giving wrong info to Cailloux. Can you share your program in this for Quad flying ? Thanks again and I will check that link.
Cailloux, The card mentioned in my link is the Silabs Toolstick programmer, you can google search for it. There is an alternative programmer that is sold here PRODUCT ID: 289000003 but its always backorder, stock available end July :-(. I haven't tried it myself but is going to order one myself to test.
Having a problem with these ESCs. We have 4 total, 2 are working fine, but the other 2 seem to having an issue. They will power up with the "123" beep, but then nothing. No battery cell count beeps, no error beeps, no response to throttle, nothing, just silence. Switching it out with different controller allows the motor to work, so the problem isn't there. Any idea what the problem may be?
I'm wanting to flash these to simonk firmware. Anyone have any luck or tips for doing so. Most the guides online are for various hobbyking brands, and I'm curious if the pad layouts are going to be the same.
These esc now have Silab chips hence cannot be flashed with simonk. There is an alternative FW similar to Simonk for silab based esc. links as follows : www helifreak com/showthread php?t=390517 Put a dot where a space is.
Mine start up at a fair rate too, but not so it's a problem. I suggest soft cutoff (get some warning before battery dies), low voltage (maximum flight time), normal start (a must for a copter!). Timing mode depends on your motors but most (90%?) work fine with middle. Use low if they don't spin up reliably, high if they get too hot.
Welcome to our hobby. Your plans never playout as you thought, things go wrong, or you bought the wrong parts etc. The parts will come and you will have it together soon enough. No worries :) have fun.
Nice Speed controller,Good for KK Board quad setup .No sync issues ,smooth throttle response,Perfect!! Thanks HK

I bought this speed controller for my 450-class helicopter. It seems to be perfectly suited for similar helicopters (t-rex 450, zoom 400, sjm 400, ...). It weight and price is much lower than the 40 -A-version. It has 40 A peak current, which is far enough (the average consumption of the helis above is usually less than 15 A). The speed controller works perfect and has a smooth throttle curve, would buy it again (and probably will).

These are HobbyWing Speed controller which are absolutely fantabulous! I love them and have almost their whole range of esc's. Use them on all my planes and have show good efficiency and reliability through the years! If you have used hobby wing ESC's you know what i am talking about. Get a programming card as well, its super easy to use and will be worth every cent.
ONE FLAW is that the governor mode hardly works well with helicopters. Using the 40A version but without governor mode as it won't hold the headspeed up well. Using a throttle curve is safer. Either that, get a jeti or CC for heli. Its perfect if you are not doing 3D though!

Nice ESC, a bit of a pain to program with your transmitter, but do-able. If you do get this ESC, get the programing card, it'll make things a lot easier.
