A quality SMT produced ESC with reliable components. The Turnigy AE series are based on new powerful microprocessor. The new CPU means ultra fast sync timing, crisper throttle response, less battery load and reduced FET heat buildup. Also there is a separate voltage regulator IC for microprocessor providing good anti-jamming capability.
Specification: Output: Continuous 45A, burst 50A up to 10 seconds. Input Voltage: 2-6 cells lithium battery or 5-18 cells NIMH battery. BEC: Linear 3A @ 5V Control Signal Transmission: Optically coupled system. Max Speed: 2 Pole: 210,000rpm 6 Pole: 70,000rpm 12 Pole: 35,000rpm Size: 60mm (L) * 26mm (W) * 11mm (H). Weight: 43g.
Features: High performance microprocessor brings out the best compatibility with all kinds of motors and the highest driving efficiency. Wide-open heatsink design to get the best heat dissipation effect. Improved Normal, Soft, Very-Soft start modes, compatible with aircraft and helicopter. Smooth, linear, quick and precise throttle response. Multiple protection features: Low-voltage cut-off protection / Over-heat protection / Throttle signal loss protection Programable via transmitter
Programming features: Brake setting (we recommend using brake for only folding props applications) Battery type(Li-xx or Ni-xx) Low voltage cutoff setting Factory default setup restore Timing settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness) Soft acceleration start ups (for delicate gearbox applications) Low voltage cutoff type (power reduction orirnmediate shutdown)
Factory default settings: Brake: off Battery type: Li-xx (Li-ion or Li-Po) Low voltage cutoff threshold: Soft cut-off (2.6V) Timing setup: Low Soft Acceleration Start Up: Normal Low voltage cutoff type: Medium
Hmmm. No response to the control surfaces means there is no power to the RX. No lights on the receiver? If so, check the connector on the receiver to the ESC, I would think it is on backwards. Generally, even if the ESC doesn't arm, the control surfaces will still work, because the BEC is constant.
Just received Turngy ae-45a SBEC 5-6v/4a.
All it does is beep once /s. I reversed the RX plug with no change. Also, changed the motor
wires with no results.
My other ESC's are plug and play.
It should power Rx regardless of which port you plug it in but only throttle port will work motor with throttle stick. Make sure you don't plug in the wrong way, reversing Gnd and Signal. This ESC comes with ve in the middle which is the same with Spektrum Rx. Can't speak for 9X Rx.
Bought it here in HK a while ago. Now I'm trying to work it on but i had no success.
It's energized by a Turnigy 4000 mAh, 4 cells LiPo battery and plugged to a TWM KM0374810 motor.
I use a Spektrum AR6200 receiver and plugged the ESC to the Throttle slot. Also tried the Battery slot but it didn't even light the RX led!
Any suggestions? :-(
Check to see if you plugged it in backwards. If you did, it will not come on, otherwise, you may have a bad BEC. Use a multitester to see if there is 4-6VDC from the plug to the TX, if not it is a bad BEC, if so, something is not correctly hooked up.
The fact that this ESC can be programmed using the Turnigy Speed Controller Programming Card (idProduct=7187) increase the usability significant. Not only stupid stick-programming
as stated in the description.
since the trust esc's out of stock i,m getting this, but does anyone have any recommendations for ubec or sbec to go with this esc in my HK450, 3500kv motor, 2200mah 25c battery?? Some advice would be greatly appreciated.
using this ESC Stock settings with a proven 2500 11.1 Lipo on a Turnigy sk3 helidrive(450size) all on a HK450. Normal flight mode is set up at -2 and 12 pitch. I get a good hover for less than 2 minutes and the motor lags (sounds like too much pitch) I will set it down and head speed comes up and it will hover for a few seconds then will repeat the issues. I switched the ESC with an older one and it flies rock solid with awesome 3d performance. Any info would be of great help. Thanks....
Thanks Crashtestheli, Thats How I have done the program at this time, But I have never liked doing it this way. I would like to get the card as its quick and easy, also its accurate no messing around with peep peep system of programming, I like a card.
stock setting is very soft. I am setting mine up now and have not had to touch the factory settings....I am thinking that change may be in order when I start more 3d flying but I am looking for a rock solid set up first.
How long is the acceleration time of this esc until it reach highest speed? I need it on heli 4-5sec or more. Can it be similar to align esc which able 10 sec very slow acceleration or this will reach highest speed within 1-2 sec wich rolls the heli dangerosly
I am looking for information on the mod Burst 45 A, two questions:
- What is the value (A) and max time to burst?
- When I put gas, a red LED lights up, is that it means it goes into Burst mod?
I have not received my ordered metric Amp clamp and in the meantime I would not burn out the controller.
Yes it does. I believe after two long beeps and one short you have the option. One short beep is off. Two short beeps is low setting. And three short beeps is high governor setting. I hope this helps. If you need another copy of the manual check under files in that items listing. Or let me know and o can upload one for you. Manual covers the 45 and 65 amp esc models.

Great Esc using it on my Eflite Showflite 4D. Crisp throttle management, perfectly capable for 3D flight.
Btw. Just bought another one for my Extra 260 from P.A.

The description clams the AE45A is programmed with Turnigy BESC program card. It doesn't work. What does work is the HobbyWing Program Card. It show the 12 settings with each value, reference the AE45A docs, set and hit OK. It done. Re-power everything and verify.

I have one of these in my Polaris XL with a 400 watt motor and a 3S 2650 batt; Excellent! Very smooth throttle and good clean power to the receiver and servos. Running a heat sink since it's inside seaplane with no airflow, still no overheating.
I'm buying another right now for another seaplane.
Work perfectly. I put a lot of stress on it and it never gave up. (I push it by error over 90Amps for 5 secondes, wrong setup on test bench)I noticed my error after, the ESC was hot, but not burning hot. Still working fine. The BEC drive 2x HS-65MG and 2x HS-82MG without problem (analog servos).

Montato sul mio hk-450 che piano piano lo sto portando a tutto metallo e carbonio!
va semplicemente una bomba! giri perfetti, 0 problemi con il bec(anche se uno sempre un condensatore quando uso il bec)
super soft start eccezionale!
