Ultra fast microprocessor controlled and extremely low resistance circuit and chip design, water-proof PCB, and aluminum water-cool heatsink for better thermal dissipation are just some of the features in the new TURNIGY Aquastar range of brushless boat speed controllers. The AquaStar brushlessesc is a high performance ESC capable of standard and competition use.

Good advice for everybody, alvays juse a esc so can handle 1 cell more then what you gonna juse, this recomend 5 cell, and separat colling system for motor and esc. Then you gonna have a esc for ever. And long durable speed runs, gonna juse 6 cell, buy a 7cell esc or more. I have this and juse 4 cell 5000mah 45-90 , and 5 celll 6000,mah, and 3180 kv motor, always have a safe rang,

got this esc to go in the genesis. i am running 2 3s batteries in series (so 6s). the only other thing i did was the octura prop, i have run the boat 2 times so far and noticed somthing odd every time. when i pop the hatch off to check temps, the batts are cool the alum part of the esc is cool and the motor cool. but the 2 capacitors on the side are hot and smoking. any ideas? i figure it will stop if i go to a 4s setup.
Depending on how you are running your boat, there are several possible answers. The caps are there to deal with current spikes/dips ("AC ripple"). I would check how long your battery leads are. It's also possible that the prop you are using is too big (no clue which octura prop you're using). Do you have enough power supplied to the ESC?
on mine the deans t plugs are smelting, on esc and battery, jusing 4s and 3 blad 35 and a 3660sl 3180kv motor,4 pole 18w, any idea? i jusing a safe rang setup, end this souldt happand.hole
wiring system are melting.
How many amps are you pulling? Is the motor hot? What gauge of wire are you running? How long are your extensions from batt (if any). I know that 4mm bullets are standing up to 85 amps using 10ga wire on my setup. I would seriously question the resistance on the wire you are using.
Its stock wiring, as they come whit, 10 cm length on batt, and aslo 10 on esc, 8 cm on motor, 4mm bullet and deans plugs, dont know the amps draw, motor and esc are hot, but stil working great, just cables smelting,
I bought a Turnigy Aguastar 120a water-cooled brushless speed control and a brushless motor 1200kv about two months ago.
I received it 10 days later and installed it with the motor properly.
Everything working fine for 10 runs, I used two 3s 11,1v lipo batteries, lot of power and excellent control.
But suddenly I’*ve lost control.
After several tries I’*ve manage to work the speed control but only with extra power supply in my receiver(6 volts).
Probably the speed control burn out the power supply for receiver.I've allready send an email but still no answer.
I sould have a replacement for my speed control. The speed has 120 days guarantee.any help or ideas?
My AquaStar stop work exactly like yours. With 6s and 83 Amp peak run about 4 times 5 min and begin lost the BEC and the power. I have another one that run with 3s (65 Amp peak) and no problem. There are guarantee for this ESC?
Usei o meu esc uma vez com lipo 2x3S 5000mah 40C, agora ele fica sem forç*a na saí*da, ou seja, ele falha e nã*o vai, tipo engasga e nã*o anda, só* se for acelerando bem gradativo pra ele ir...Já* fiz todo tipo de configuraç*ã*o e nada. nã*os ei mais o que faç*o...algué*m pode ajudar?
I cannot calibrate this ESC with HK310 transmitter. I get the long beep at the full throttle position, per the manual. But then I move it to the full break position but no beep. Tried it at 120% EPA but didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.
10/08/2012 ColC53 (1) Just received 3 of these for our RC Boats, easy to set up, and very responsive, however 2 of them dropped one of the motor leads (Black) off the circut board. Either it was ***r soldering or would it be from to much heat?? Just interested to know if anyone else had the same problem.
The wires still keep dropping off, is it bad solder connections, definetly no heat problems, and still no answer from Hobby King - Aus for my request, so maybe I will get an answer from the International group. Thanks
Did you use 2 x 3 in serie? So 6s? I disconnect the BEC always by more than 3s (simply remove the red wire to the receiver) And did you set the right timing for your motor? What kind of boat, withc proppellor etc? I have several in use and after the correct setup, never had problems with it.
yes, with this esc you can use a maximum of six LiPo cell, 22,2V total, i can suggest you to use almost twin 3S lipo 40C or more discharge, and almost 5000 mAh X2,in series mode. or maybe run along with twin 4S 5000mAh in parallel connection.
Yes, you caan use the Acquastar with twin 3S packs, remember to use the program card for parameters, don't overload more the Esc. Best with twin 4S 70C 5000 mAh in parallel... almost 25 minutes of runtime.
It looks like a great ESC but can someone tell me what is the dimension of the ESC without the water inlets and outlets? I need the dimension only of the box part without the water cooling on the sides.
Hamdhan, please take a look at the Turnugy Marine 120A ESC first and then comment here.... The Marine (as the name suggests) is intended for marine use, therefore IT HAS water cooling, furthermore, it is sad to be waterproof as well, and I don't see that mentioned here for the Aquastar 120A...
I agree, no boat ESCs are completely waterproof out of the factory. I do waterproof all the necessary electronics inside my boats. (Receivers, ESCs) Looking at the possible progrmmable parameters this ESC is still behind the Marine, Motor Timing options wise. OK This one comes with the program card, but there also a program card for the Marine for not much extra money... Looking forward to your findings on these though! Let us posted! Thank you!
Just thought I'd mention that the ProBoat aluminum 45 amp esc that comes with the blackJack 26 IS Completely waterproof from the factory. Down side is it's only 45 amp. Rokcster.
Brought 2 of these esc's. Ran 3s ,4s and 6s lipos and it ran perfectly with no problems. Its seems more responsive compared to the turnigy marine series imo.
I suggest waterproofing the esc properly as no esc's are truely waterproof.
great esc :-)

excellent variateur, fonctionne sur un 3900kv, en 3 s. et ne chauffe pas! il est super léger, compact, facile à programmer avec la radio ou la pocket. le moteur utilisé est un turnigy 3900kv pour propulser un bateau de 70 cm. le variateur est surdimensionné pour ce type moteur, mais polyvalent pour monter sur un bateau plus gros éventuellement plus tard. achat super intéréssant, je en regrette pas.

Excelente Speed, estou usando na minha NTN-600... Funciona muito bem, manual bem explicativo, estou usando na minha NTN baterias nano tech 4S 4000Mha quando retorno o Speed esta morno – Recomendo a compra!

Great controller. I bought this controller for my mono1 boat (Etti Envoy). Completely satisfied, controller keeps cool and does what it should be. Will buy more of these controllers. The programming card is easy to use :-)

I run this esc with my genesis cat and i only use 3S lipo because the maximum voltage on the instructions is 25.2V but when my Turnigy 5800mAh batteries are charged they have a voltage of 14V each (14*2=28V!!) so i cant run my boat on 6S lipo's because it will burn out. a tip for everyone, always check you true battery voltage before plugging in to your rc. it could cost you.
