This 45A brushed ESC is a great replacement for your model's stock ESC or for setting up a new brushed power system in your car or truck. It features a low voltage cut-off for use with lipoly batteries. Its compact and lightweight design make it ideal for use in 1/10 scale drift cars utilizing brushed motors.
Features: • Low voltage cutoff for use with Lipoly batteries • Compact and lightweight design • 5.6V/2A BEC
Specs: Continuous Current: 45A Burst Current: 320A (10sec) Suitable Car: 1/10 on and off road Battery: 2 cell Lipo (5-6 cells NI-xx) BEC output: 5.6V/2A switch mode built-in Motor type: brushed Operation: Forward/Brake/Reverse Dimension: 38x28x22mm Weight: 40g
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.
this esc will be used Rock Crawling..No Natural Brake. reverse or forward is accessible at any time after the RPM

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.
