Ultra fast microprocessor controlled, extremely low resistance circuit and chip design, and aluminum heatsink for better thermal dissipation are just some of the features in the new TURNIGY Super Brain range of brushless speed controllers. The Super Brain brushlessesc is a high performance ESC capable of standard and competition use. Full protection, including signal loss, over-temperature. Programable by USB, PC or your Tx. Compatible with all radio systems.
Supports the ‘Turnigy USB Linker’ to program the ESC by computer. ESC Firmware upgradeable via the internet. Integrated flight data logger, records data for the ENTIRE flight such as: - Voltage - Current - Temperature - Motor RPM - Throttle travel Programmable settings; Startup (Default Standard/Soft/hard) Low Voltage cutoff (Default 12.0/15.0/18.0/21.0/24.0/27.0/30.0/33.0/36.0V) Current limiting (Default Standard/Very sensitive/Insensitivity/Disabled)
Any idea on when these are going to be stocked again? Been watching for almost three weeks now. The UK warehouse has them stocked, but US customers can't order from there. Kind of silly since the people that want this ESC are stuck waiting.
useing the turnigy superbrain 100 amp with my setup why does the power stay on to my switch that operates my reciever with 7.4v battery plugged in to run my servos and throttle ? the superbrain doesnt have a bec so why does the power stay on? i need the 7.4 v to run my servo's otherwize there sluggish. can i use a bec with the turnigy superbrain or not ?
you actually have to use a BEC or a flight pack to power the RX, since the SB has no BEC. If you do use a flight pack, the RX power will stay on when you disconnect the ESC. The other way to do it is to wire the BEC into the ESC battery leads, in which case the RX power would go off when you unplug the ESC.
In theory something that can handle "100A".
So 50C 2000mAh should in theory be able to handle the load. In practise though, I recommend you shoot for at least about 50pcnt "margin". So e.g. 40C 3800mAh would allow for some margin.
I currently fly a multicopter at 4* max10A with a 120A battery (3000mAh @ 40C).
The real question is: how much battery capacity can you carry and how much do you need? The bigger the capacity, the lower the C-rating can be.
As to the "20V", 6S comes close. It sta
As to the "20V", 6S comes close. It starts out charged at 25.2V, and discharges to around 20V. Or you could choose 5S, 21V fully charged, discharge down to 16-18V. So from the information you've given, I cannot say: chose this one. But I can allow you to calculate what you need. Start with the time you want to fly/drive/whatever. Convert to hours (e.g. 10 minutes = 0.166 hours). Multiply by the average Amps you're going to use. with 100A max, this might be 30A. Multiply these together and you get the required Ah. In the example: 0.166h * 30A = 5Ah. Add a bit of margin. 5 Ah * 1.2 = 6Ah. Now you could use 20C, 6Ah batteries. However, I recommend you get 25C or 30C. Chose 6S, and to get 6Ah, use two 3000mAh ones in parallel. Two of these for example. www.link
You can obtain the setting manual: Go to the product(Turnigy Super Brain 100A Brushless ESC) then "Files" and the name of the file is "SuperBrain100A_online.pdf". You'll find all the informations you want about this product.
I hope I helped you.
10 April 2012: I purchased a Super Brain 100A ESC in Feb 2011 -and have not yet used it. I am now about to use this 100A ESC. -So I emailed Zenith Peng, of Chongqing HIFEI Technology Ltd, to find the latest position, so that I can be sure that the ESC will work properly in my plane. I sent the email to: zenith.peng*gmail***** and also to: info*hifei**** Here is his reply to me: " ... Hello Dr. L.... Thanks for your email. Attached are the last firmware for 100A-K and the manual for HiFei KINGKONG ESCs, you should update the firmware as the following procedures: 1 Using Turnigy Super Brain software to upgrade the old firmware of Turnigy Super Brain 100A with the new one 【*attached: Hifei 1HV 100(A ).DLC】* 2 Download HiFei Software 4.01 in HiFei website ( ***********hifei****/en/News_View.asp?NewsID=122 ), and install it.

When I tested the engine (TR37403-1180) against the super brain controller (TSB100A) first time using 9S LIPO without any load (enginge running idle - no gear, no main rotor), the controller set himself to fire. Furtunately I was able to download the logging information. This shows, that the controller finished his life early at 40A. In addition to that I wonder, how an engine without any load applied can draw 40 A or more. I suspect a mechanical issue on the motor as well (defective bearing ?). Therefore I send both items back for claiming warranty. Good to have the logger active ... . But I will buy a new set (same items) immediately.
I recieved my SuperBrain 100 and would love to use my USB Linker. But the Turnigy Software says: "can´*t hardware 11HA´*s parameter setting".
If i use the ****HiFei**** Link Software V4.01 the linker works with the SB100....
ok i now have motor running and grafs it was because i needed to do at least a 20sec run what i now need the pole setting and timming setting for this esc and a rotomax1.60 can anyone tell me what it is please
im using this and the usb on win7 it has taken ages to get the softwere and usb to work however it is reconized, now my y lead for the usd is confusing it has one red and back and one red black and one white i get these connected to the esc then the y goes to a single red ,white,black this goes in the usb i get that but where the y join is i have a red and black wire no connectors whats this for also some say to power the esc when using the usb well i tryed that i get either "time out" or the "h11" message however with no power to the esc the computor powers the led on the esc and conection works ok but no graf data ? also it is powering the RX i though this was opto does this mean im powering the rx twice! a freind told me i have to disconnect the red going in to the rx from the esc or i will fry the thing is this right!any idear what i need to set the esc at for the rotomax1.60 pole nu,etc please someone give me some advise HK need to right better manaul and put pole number on there motors!
I purchased a Turnigy Plush ESC 60. I plugged it into my Airtronics receiver. I got a constant beep every 2 seconds. The manual says the throttle wiring is wrong. I tried all configurations of plug wiring. Nothing worked. Is the Plush 60 compatible with the Airtronics receivers?
Just received the super brain 100A. No instructions. No matter what I do when I power the ESC, when connected to the receiver and motor, I get ten beeps. If anyone can help that would be appreciated. I have the programming board and the programming box as they where sold out of the USB when I ordered.
1)Cutoff type: Hard
2)Governor Mode: Auto
3)Brake type: No brake
6)Start type: Fast start
7)Timing Advance: Auto
8)Current Limiting: Disable
I wish that was the case. I have it connected to 5S pack. I also have a bench top adjustable power supply that I have tried up an down the acceptable range for the ESC and I get the ten beeps no matter what voltage input.
I received a superbrain 100A ESC today
I've been running the 80A and 60A with the USB linker and PC software with no problems for many months
When I connect the SB100A with the Y-cable to the same USB linker
select the correct coms port
I get this cryptic error messsge:
can't hardware 11HA 's parameter setting
does anyone know how to get pass this point so I can program this ESC?
and use the data logger
It can be programmed using the TX stick... but you NEED the computer interface to use the data recording capability of this ESC. If you are not going to get the USB connector, get a different ESC. Default setting is use4able. Its autodetect on the cell count and LVC, auto advance motor control, needs the thrrottle range expanded to maximum on my JR X9303 or it limits max power to appx 90pcnt. (I did first flight using one without connecting it to the computer first) I have 2 of these ESCs and a
I have seem that there are three firmware available in hobbyking. two says original, it seems to me that they are exactly the same, and there is a third one call firmware 0129 okt. Which one I should load? Could someone tell me what are the difference between th original and the third one. I really apprecite any help from you guys. Also is there is a new firmware available, let me know. Thank a lot, Leopoldo
Running it with a Mega 110 motor an a 19x8 prop. With more then 70% throttel the motor almost stop, sound like loosing timing. Theis also happens if I give fast throttel. Have now try out with a Turnigy Sentilon 100A HV and everything now working. Funny becourse that reg. have werry bad response in theis forum. Have try all settings regarding timing ets. and tject all connection. It look like the reg. not are abel to handle my motor :(
are you sure that you have correctly programmed the ESC ..? check again: Current Limitin, Timing Advance, Cutoff Type, PWM Rate and other options. if your batteries are too weak (not enough Amps) load above 70pcnt is too big and the battery voltage drops so the ESC thinks that they are empty, therefore reducing engine power. LVC set to AUTO or one battery is less than (for example, if you have 12s set the 11s) This option is only for testing - do not fly on it! You can destroy the batteries if the
Hi, i want to use this ESC in a T-Rex 700 3G. Softstart and Supersoftstart with enabled Governormode is perfekt. But when i disable the Governormode also the Softstart is disable. I have try everthing to get a Softstart without used Governor, but i won´t work. What is the mistake i made ?? I use the Turnigy Software with USB Linker. Thanks Woffi
so far so good work nicely on trex 600, 6S liFe4500mAh ,motor align 600XL,13T pinion.average voltage 16v max current 71,5amp

Matriel: T-Rex 600 FBL avec tte RJX Moteur: Scorpion 4025 1100kv 5000mAh 6S Lipos. L'esc Brain 100A fonctionne trs bien sur mon T-Rex 600, dmarrage super doux, bonne gestion de la fonction governor, la limitation 100A du courant par logiciel est scurisante. Chauffe trs peu. Que du bon pour le moment.
just tested on 4s batt and seems to be working fine at the moment, havent programmed it or have the bird done yet but it's going to go on 5" fan with scorpion 4035 800kv on 9s batt, maybe i'll have it done in a month or 2 to give a better review

Mine came today, servo/receiver wires were ok. I just pluged them into Y-cable, connected to USB linker and went throught programming/logging software - no problems there. Now waiting for 10s Li-Pol pack to bench test it with TGY SK 63-64 230Kv engine and TGY Wood 20x12 prop. More power, wrrrr!
