Anybody using this with 3s lipo and a BEC? I want to put it in my crawler with 540-sized 27T stock motor.

Yes,I have this with my axial scorpion and it has never let me down.I have ran it for about a year now and the best is you can use LiPo with it.

Would this work and a traxxas stampede 2wd

If you have a Stampede fitted with a Titan 12T motor it will work perfect.

Can i use this to power a windshield motor?
 Stefan 19 points
You can but won't recommend it, because you won't get full rpm due to low input voltage and over time it will damage your motor/esc. Most windshield motors are 12Volt, this ESC is for a 2 cell with is only 8.4Volt. I think the best option would be the Turnigy 30A brushed ESC which is 2cell and 3cell Lipo or 6-10cell NiMH. Hope this was helpful.

My esc also stopped working after using it a few times. I was doing a static test on a DC motor using a Turnigy servo tester to control speed. Maybe it overloaded the esc because I noticed that the esc got slightly warm after it stopped working. Did you find the answer to the problem?

Connected this esc to my "Corona Synthesized Dual-Conv Receiver 6Ch 35Mhz" and the ESC is not finding the correct neutral position. I have to trim the transmitter quite a bit to reverse before the neutral is correct. Shouldn't it find neutral on every switch-on?

Yes it should, but I have a radio that this ESC's won't calibrate correctly with as well. It appears that they are not compatible with 100% of the radios available. I take it that if you were using a stick radio you had it setup with spring loading instead of a ratchet for the throttle.

I did indeed use the spring loaded stick. My transmitter is a Graupner/JR mx16. Not a very uncommon transmitter I would say... I'll try with another transmitter.

Ok i took the plunge and bought six of these esc's to replace some others i had, all setup in various tamiya cars and buggies, i use lipo batteries so having the built in cut-off was a big selling point to me and at such a great price i would recommend them to anyone, easy to program. Ive been buying more and more from hobbyking, always great products and excellent prices. Keep them coming guys.

Install it in my old Tamiya Wild dagger truck with 2 x 540 brushed motors, and i works like a charmed, just out of the "box". The old school speed control went up in smoke. :-)

Best regards

Seems ok. Brake doesn't seem to work. Will just violently go straight into reverse instead of brake first.
