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 RC-Plane, if you want be in safe zone, only connect a 40 or lower Ampere rating motor with this ESC. But also since the specs says that this ESC can handle a 60A burst current, in theory you can connect a 60A motor as long as you don't use the motor full power at all time (i.e. full throttle for less than 10sec * 60A motor is OK). Another factor that can affect the power/current consumption is the motor and prop combination. So Even if you use a 60 or higher Ampere rating motor and put a smaller prop than the motor recommended maximum prop size your motor will use less Current (Ampere). If you are new and serious about this hobby I recommend that you get a power meter (I use this : PRODUCT ID: TR-Wattmeter) so that you can always test your motor and prop combination or better build a thrust meter. I always use my home built thrust meter to test my Motor and Prop combination before installing them on my plane to make sure that I will not stress my Motor and ESCs while making sure that they will produce the required thrust.
You can use the ESC SBEC to power you other electronics like receiver, flight stabilizer and up to 6 9grams servos, assuming the servo stall current are 500mA. But if you use a different servo allocate 3A for the servos and to get the number of servo you can connect just divide 3A with your servos stall current.

What is BEC?
BEC stands for Battery Eliminator Circuit.
In Radio Control (RC) contexts, the BEC is extra circuitry on the ESC (Electronic Speed Controller ie. Motor Controller) to provide power to the controls (such as steering, servos, receivers) to the controlled vehicle (eg. airplane, car, helicopter, boat) so that this control circuitry does not need to carry it’s own battery pack. That is, it piggy backs of the battery pack used to drive the motors of the vehicle or in other words, the motor and servos share the same battery pack.
In motorcycle / ATV contexts (which use Internal Combustion Engines), BECs are sometimes used so that a battery is not required. Instead, it relies on the alternator to generate the required electricity and the BEC is used to regulate the electrical power which will be used for electrical items on the motorcycle / ATV such as lights, horn etc. If there is no battery, there is no electric starter on these machines.
What is SBEC?
SBEC usually stands for Switching Battery Eliminator Circuit. In RC (Radio Control) contexts, SBECs are improved versions of BECs as the circuitry uses battery power more efficiently.
What is UBEC?
UBEC stands for Ultimate Battery Eliminator Circuit. In RC (Radio Control) contexts, a UBEC is an improved version of a BEC. ESCs with a UBEC use circuitry that is more efficient than a ESC with a BEC, thus you save battery power. Also, ESCs with UBECs tend to run cooler than ESCs with BECs.
What is the difference between a SBEC and an UBEC?
SBECs are typically smaller in physical size and lighter than UBECs. When deciding whether to use SBECs or UBECs, you need to look at the specifications to see if it meets your requirements. Things like amp rating and battery rating are things to look out for.
I also set my Quad to 4s and 12x4,5 props. Is much better. But who can tell me where I get software to flash 40A Blueseries ESC from HK with SIMONK. Need firmware and Program downloadlinks. Or set data in the files here. Thanks
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.
