Its no “Mystery” where these ESCs are made, now they are available to you at HobbyKing prices.
Built with imported N-Channel mosFET's and an ultra fast Atmel MCU & heartbeat make this a high performance ESC with excellent sync capabilities. This ESC has a 4A SBEC for solid reliable servo power. Programmable via an R/C controller.It allows you to program all functions to fit your specific needs, which makes it efficient and user friendly.
Features: Extremely low internal resistance Super smooth and accurate throttle linearity Over heat and over-load protection Auto shut down when signal is lost or radio interference becomes severe for more than 2 seconds Supports high RPM motors Power arming protection (prevents the motor from accidentally running when switched ON) New Advanced programming software
Programming features: Brake setting (we recommend using brake for only folding props applications) Battery type(LiPo or NiCd/NiMh) Low voltage cutoff setting Factory default setup restore Timing settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness) Soft acceleration start ups (for delicate gearbox and helicopter applications) Governor mode(for helicopter applications) Motor rotation( clockwise\counterclockwise) Switching frequency Low voltage cutoff type (power reduction orirnmediate shutdown)
Factory default settings: Brake: off Battery type Detect: LiPo with Automatic Cell Low voltage cutoff threshold: Medium (3.0V/65%) Timing setup: Automatic Soft Acceleration Start Up: Medium Governor mode : OFF Frequency : 8kHz Low voltage cutoff type: Reduce power
Hi, Siffup. The quality of the answers you get will be relative to the quality of the questions asked. I struggle to understand what you are asking. Could you be more precise? Perhaps if you want to know the complete specifications of all components, the grade of solder used, etc, the best source of information would be direct to customer services who can access the manufacturer. This is more a discussion forum of customers and users. We don't make 'em - we fly 'em!
Hi siffup. I can't zoom the pictures but I've made a bit of a guess and have checked over two of my five of these ESCs. The others are embedded in aircraft! I had toi use a magnifying glass. To be certain, I would have to remove the clear heat shrink to eliminate the reflections and slightly separate the components to better read the spec. I'm not willing to dissect. However, it appears to confirm yes, regular.
Hi, I´*m using 2 of these units. Does somebody know the which is the UPPER OPERATING TEMPERATURE for a continuos use, before the High Temp protection activates ????
Thanks a lot , your answers will be very much appreciated !!
The specification is for 110 deg C, at which time the ESC will reduce output power. It will also cut power to the motor is it detects a loss of throttle signal greater than 2 secs.
To keep the ESC operating cooler you can do two things. First, select a switching frequency of 16kHz (a programming card will not do this - use your Tx) Next, experiment with timing - if you are not always on full throttle then regardless of poles etc an outrunner configured to lower timing will generate less heat through the motor system provided your aircraft is okay with the slight drop off in power and you'll find your flights last longer.
My original ESC from the Phoenix 2000 broke and I am wondering which will be getter to get the (HobbyKing 40A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controller) or the (TURNIGY Plush 40amp Speed Controller)?
I would recommend the HobbyKing 40 A BlueSeries as it has a higher burst current (60A) than the Plush and also the BEC in the HK BlueSeries can provide 4 Amp current as compared to the 3A output current of the Turnigy Plush.
This is a matter of personal choice because both are good and each has its strengths. I have fitted a 40A Blue Series to my new Phoenix because I already have another fitted in an airframe driving six servos without a problem for over 40 hours to date. After two hours, I am confident that I will get a good run with the Blue 40A in my glider.
If you want something to start then take the black wire located across from the ve battery lead and connect to red on motor. Take the black lead that is across from the -ve battery lead and connect to the yellow motor lead. Finally, connect the middle lead to the motor black lead. Usually, that configuration will give you correct rotation. If not, swop over the motor black with yellow.
Every motor I've tried with this ESC runs VERY hot. Also my battery time is shorter. You can to better in this price range.

5 thumbs up!
Wow, I am glad I bought this when I did! This is a fantastic speed control. I hooked it up to my new HK 450MT project and have had no problems. I haven't gotten the chance to really load it up yet, but it runs cool in hovering (test flights).
I deducted one star because it comes with no instructions. While you can build the HK 450 with T-Rex instructions, I wouldn't attempt programming the ESC with them!
-Still Did not test it Great Quality..... Even shipping is Good. I m from India and I ordered about .983 Kg(Total) and i received it within 11 Dayz from the date of Shipping.....Thats Great... Thankx Hobby King.. :-)

Best ESC so far, will not use others for the time being. Very easy to program with the correct programming card.
