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.

Roughly on 6S, you may reach 60mph with it..but bare in mind that your lipo draw 160amp constant, im afraid it will not last long..just like mine because these esc need at least 200amp draw from lipo..just to share, im running my arowana 31" with these esc and 3974-2200kv motor on 4S with 43mm prop and it reached 50mph..so may be you can reach 60mph with your leo motor (bigger and powerful motor of yours)..hope this help.
I run a Leo 4082 2000kv with this esc on 6S 5.0A on a rigger for three minutes max and top speed of 85mph.If you take care of this esc we can say its a bulletproof one.see this *******youtu.be/ym0vOQDDbIc
I use the stock replacement prop of the super surge crusher on my geico with a stock motor and a 90 amp esc and i reach 50mph on 6s.
Can I reach 60mph with the dr mad thrust 1600kv 2400watt on 6s and the 3 blade prop?
I just purchased a Genesis offshore brushless and curious to if the this Turnigy Marine 180A Brushless Boat ESC is agressive for the stock setup? batteries 3300.3S.35/20706 Turnigy nano-tech 3300mah 3S 35~70C Lipo Pack. right now i have the turnigy 120 marine 120a.
How till this work with twin set up on two helli motors at 850kv-3025kv 1300 watt x 2
1. How many cells can i run on 1 esc with two of these.
2.How many cells can i run og 1 esc on each...
Max amount of cells youcan use for either setup is 6s. Max of 22.2v no mater what battery type you plan on using.
keep the motor at the 850kv if you are going with max voltage.
kv x voltage = max rpm ( no load )
more rpm will mean you need a smaller prop to prevent burnout.
'ok . I am a bit confused about the my heli motors and the kv. Is it so that these adjust it self. How is the kv when it says in the data: 3025-850kv.
How many cm (kg) boat in v-hull boat in a single set up vould be max. Any suggestion mr nlmbc ? :) Want to big and fast.
Had a hobbywing 90amp for about 20sec.or so and it blew.Definitely couldn't handle my leopard.Hope this 180 can pour the coal to it,with2,2s5200 40c80c burst in series.???? Or am I going to need bigger c rated batteries?Really want to run on 4s,have quite a few 2s lipos on hand already.
I was running a leapard until I fried it (water pipe popped off). Now running a TP 2150kv. I am also running it with 2 x 4S batteries and it performs exceptionally in the HobbyKing Pursuit. would have to be getting up to 90km/h
I've got a vintage 1/5th scale nitro pickle fork circle racer and want to convert to brushless. Has a Rossi .80. Flexshaft to single surface prop. Looking into the Aquastar T20 and this esc running 6S. Any thoughts or ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks.
First thing before you get any electronics is to look at how you will seal the canopy down.
You would also need to fill all holes in the hull that were there before for the nitro motor to breath. Also fill all holes in transom if any were for the exhaust.
You are looking to have a huge sealed RX box when you end up tapeing the canopy down.
You would also be running at least 2 6s packs to get the best AH you can. basicaly 22.2v an double the packs mah rateing to give you better run times.
Have a look at electric boat forums for further help in getting your setup and other ideas.
Just bought a Traxxas Spartan, and planning on upgrading it.
Will this esc do fine with the Leopard 4082-1600 kv on 6s?
And if,is there anything else i need to have in mind,such as batteries,ubec?
6s I would use a ubec or rx pack in the boat.
some have issues with the LVC (low voltage cutoff)so if it starts cutting out turn it down to 2.8 or OFF and TIME YOUR RUNS. if you upgrade the flex drive set up make sure you go 3/16 all the way. I run a leo 4082 2200kv on 5s in my genesis it FLYS runs and cool as.
i already used transmiter to program the esc. but oso the same. the rc shop where i buy this esc said that the esc are not broken, only the program on it gone. pls help me on this problem. how to install a program on this esc?? only used twice before the problem happen..
my 3974 is sitting on the bench, I was going to run it in my rigger but it doesn't fit. I used it for 2 packs in my genesis and it was very impressive. I think I might have to put my leopard in my rigger and the aquastar in the genesis.... or scratch build a new hatch for the rigger. :\
Hows yours going?
Yeah..that Aquastar motor really is a beast..already broke my 4mm flexshaft 3x..spoiled my T120A esc and 4S 5000 maH 20C lipo..haha..may be my set up still not matched..and also now, im looking for another motor with lower amp draw here in HK..anyway thanks..happy boating.
I dont know what KV the motor is in your boat, but I would be running a 1800kv motor on 6s with this esc. Make sure you get at least 5000mAh 50c battery.
Use an RX pack or UBEC if u put more than 4s through this esc and turn off the LVC and time your runs
Please give credit if u find this helpful.
very good esc for the money. i have too of them in a cat hull running too kb45 2300 rpm per volt on 5s turning too 40mm 3 blade clevers from prop shop speed is approx 45 to 50 mph plus this is a hot set up.i have melted 80 amp connects .i best up grade asap.
awesome esc for the price. Used with feigao 8xl motor and octura x430 prop. handles 5s pack with ease, but melts deans solder joints quickly. Will try 6.5mm bullet connectors instead.

This is the best boat ESC ever!
At last we have marine controller that is converted from rc cars not planes! What does it mean? You can set a lot functions that are useful in racing - like ultra fast throttle response. Air designed esc even with soft start turned off have lazy response. And all of that at unbeatable price!

very good esc for the money. i use one of these in a magin one, with 2 turnigy 5000mAh 2S in series and a 39 piercing propeler, powered by a kd36-74-09xl 1900kv inruner, the boat is very fast and it does not generate heat. After 10 min full throtle the esc is warm. I cloked it at 80 km. i'm very happy with my esc.
