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
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.
Just got my Blue 40a ESC. DIDNT see the comments here from the USA link. I was able to get the Brake to turn on/off, but cant get the Soft Start to disable. Who knows about the other settings with out a lot more testing. Seems like it shouldn't be sold as PROGRAMMABLE if it isn't. or if the methods have changed then update us!
I just solved this last night. There are no instructions but if you first have esc unplugged then turn transmitter on and have throttle all way up then plug in esc and follow this you will figure it out. You will have to check off where you are with the tones and have a motor with prop off for safety sake. I had to turn soft on to use it in a heli
Factory default settings:
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
Mine came with instructions, and that was never an issue. It was a fact of it not accepting the programming, not the fact I could not figure out how to do it. But the conclusion was that my ESC doesn't have a true Linear Start function. It looks to have been factory programmed with 3 soft start settings. All other functions programmed successfully. HK support was great and we got it all worked out. I do not know if my issue was isolated or not.
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.
