This is the ESC in my Slick 360. I started messing around with the programming trying to figure out what my 1811 motor was doing and now have it all messed up (I think- it might be that my motor is toast). Is there any info on what "questions" are asked for with each set of beeps. Tried using the programming instructions for higher amp ESCs but it's not the same.
Would the "HobbyKing AP05 3000kv Brushless Micro Motor (5.4g" and a 450mAh 2S 65-130C Lipo and a 5x3 prop work with this reciever? Or does anyone have a good set up for a small sport aerobatic plane (about 90 grams)?
I am currently using this with a Turnigy 1811 2900kV motor and a 500mah 30C battery in a hobbyking mini stick. The only thing I would worry about with your setup would be the current that this esc can provide which is double the rated burst current of the motor. This could cause the motor to overheat and fail.
Anzerman and Mr. Fowl it does not matter what the esc is rated for as long as it is strong enough to handle the motor it is running. An esc is only going to send as many amps to the motor as the motor needs. That is why you can plug a 20amp esc into this and it would be fine (although for weight sake go with the plush.) You don't need that high discharge of a battery for a small plane with your setup. I would use this PRODUCT ID: Z350-2S-20 as they are light and dirt cheap. You can buy them for less than $3 each. It will probably give you better preformance but a little less time flying but that's why you buy more than one. Hope this helps and happy flying to both of you.
mr.foul, This is a fantastic speed control for the C10 2900kv motor on 2S. I have it on my little 16in. wingspan Extra300. Also works great on my little micro soapbox tricopter with the 1811 2900kv motor.
just saying, before you run off buying this and waiting years to recieve this, i asked what are you using to power your reciever, if you don't have anything i would suggest you getting a voltage regulator at a local electronics store, would save you some more money (possibly weight) and wait time!
Thanks for all replied, I have a few PLUSH 6a lying around as spare of my micro quad. If there are no other ready made voltage regulator that is lighter and cheaper than this* I will be using this on the Alula. Who know one day i will put a little motor on it.
In my case, this Plush 6A can handle two 9 gram Hextronix servo from Hobbyking as long as u have good cooling condition with air flow(not wrapped around or squeezed in small compartment). And, glider are not likely to do some high G turns so the power consumption isn't high.
Hussin they do care a lot. They just need to under stand. My first buy from HK was 6 props. I got 5. It took 12 months to get number 6. But I got it. It took so long because I went about the wrong way. I was in there face (LIKE WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO ME). We need to calm down. Act as if we are talking our MUM's. Good Flying. Also you can go to the OPEN FORUM (Blue Tab at Top of Page). In there is a whole topic: Problems With Orders. Please consider!
Hussin. Sorry to hear about that. Unfortunately HK won't care about your situation. The postage may cost more the the ESC, HK does not refund postage. I'm trying to get a refund on a TX that is faulty and I'm sooo frustrated that HK is absolutely inconsiderate to still after about two months of waiting haven't given me it. Sorry, you may not even bother trying.
Hussin what did they send you??? Have you checked your ticket, 20 days is not long. So if your ticket is still open add to it. Also contact live CS, again tell them your ticket. They can check it. If it has been LONG (OVER A MONTH) they can flag it to there boss. So can you use what you were sent???
Karl. I got two for my micro plane. It is a pain. I just had to solder on a smaller plug. (Lucky i had one from my damaged ESC). HK should say what plug it comes with to ensure members arn't disappointed.
Agreed. They usually do a pretty good job displaying specs. Unfortunately the smaller plug was exactly why I had to replace this speed controller as it melted the weird covering all the way down to the copper. The good news is that I found an adapter in a hobby store located in America. Just waiting for it to come. Sorry to hear that you've been in the same boat but happy flying anyway.
Karl so have you even consider, that this is some thing that HK could benefit from. Above is a blue lettered Issue Tab in line with the, add to cart. In there you, may ask them to add "receiver end plug" info. Or they could change the pic. If they get a couple of buyers with the same issue or even one they do act!
Thanks NewToHobbyking. Never looked there as I was usually only adding stuff to my cart. I will do that and maybe Haydz will do the same since he is now getting discussion replays from this. Thanks again and I appreciate the help.
Hay it all helps. Rome was not built in a day. I know we think HK is perfect but they do make some mis takes. This is only a small over sight. But I it would be nice to see the only plug it come with! It will only change if members / buyers ask for it.
Yes it will work just fine, You are exactly right the ESC should be a little higher rating than the motor, always remember that the ESC also provides the power for your receiver if you loose a motor that's one thing if you loose your ESC you loose control of your airplane, but you got it right
James cool question. Since we are talking ESCs, it is say it can handle up to a draw of a continuous current of 6a. So you continuous draw of 4.1 amps will suit great. It is always better, to have that safety margin. Good Flying!
... i wish you people read... >.<*
the ONLY connect this ESC has is the one servo connector (the one that goes to your RX or FC) there for it does not have any connector for your battery nor for the side that goes to your motor
you will have to solder your OWN connector!
hope this helps~~ *Thanks/Credit is always appreciated!*
as i stated below, this ESC does not come with any gold connector, the only connector that this has is the servo connector. you would have to solder the motor side directly onto the motor your self or put your own connector onto the ESC :)
hope this helps :)
Mairton, Its would be nice if you don't leave your cap lock when you're asking for help... it looks really bad
anyways with that aside, this ESC comes with only the servo connector, so you must either crimp your own or solder your own connector or even directly connect the ESC to the motor and the power
Just received my Turnigy Plush 6A ESC. I want to use it with an Orange RX415 receiver. The plug of the ESC is too big for the RX415 (according to the description, the RX415 uses "micro molex 3 pins with 1,25mmm pitch"). Are there any replacement plugs available for the ESC in order to plug it to an Orange RX415 receiver?
Together with Turnigy 2211 Brushless Indoor Motor 2300kv and a 2S LiPo the Motor starts to stutter and slam forth and back when the initial throttle is too high. When I start smooth with very little trottle everything is ok, but that's not practical. What's wrong?
You can only hook 1 (one) Brushless Motor to any Brushless ESC.
You would have to use 2 ESCs for 2 Motors, because a brushless Motor runs on 2 phases (Wires) instead of just 2 like a brushed Motor.
3 Phases because they always get Signal to HALL Effekt of Motor to predict Speed etc, so if you hook up 2 brushless Motors to 1 ESC irt wouldnt work because both Motrs would NEVER be at the same exact position to its internal Magnets.
Hope this Info helps you and answered your Question.
I dont know why I didn't do this earlier but I just youtube searched 2 brushless motors 1 esc and it turns out someone has already done it and it worked fine h t t p : / / w w w . y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = 9 p P _ V s s T 3 l w
Did you also read the Comments on the Video ???
The Video i viewed has a comment that i will quote:
"one major flaw. if you put load on just one of the motors, the motor with less load will spin faster and receive more current. its* called path of least resistance."
Well the idea is to use one 6a esc for 2 2A motors to save weight on a micro airplane because a 6A esc is the smallest current rating I could find. I get that there would be problems if they were loaded differently but if they both have 4x2.5 props shouldn't the load be aproximatly the same?
Geee. Onew ESC CAN operate 2 motors quite well actually. It Has been done repeatedly. But it works with smaller motors and the Motors MUST be Identical. Few commercial motors even have the same number of winds pole to pole let alone between motors. Try and see is the Acid test.
May Work perfectly or May not.. Live a little :-)
I have 10g motor (8-11 2000kv Micro Brushless Outrunner) with this Plush 6A. I apply 50Hz from 5% (zero% power) to 10% (100% power) duty cycle to ESC from Frequency generator.
I noticed that when I attached to one motor, total current draw about 0.5A. Two motor-0.7A, Three motor-0.95A to 1.03 and Four motor-0.8A to 1.02. All are at 10% duty cycle (ie. 100% power)
The current are not increasing linearly. I can only applied 30% power. After I applied more than 30% power, the current draw and rotation are almost same.
I believe the all four ESCs should draw more than 1A. Anybody have this kind of problem before? Please help.
Nothing is wrong. The volume of motor melody depend on the rotor position against stator coils...

This little 6A speed controller is the perfect complement for the 10 gram 18-11 2000kv Micro Brushless Outrunner as it runs it up very smoothly....Also a very nice price! The 16 start up melodies are nice but be aware that there is about a 20 second long 120mAh current draw during this process according to my Astro micro meter. Also note that current drawing melodies can be disabled. B.T.W. The wire on this S.C. is a bit overkill so I installed Castle Creations 24ga. silicon wire and got the weight with the motor and battery plugs to 4.7 grams. Greg Holmes 10/22/07

If you need a little bit more from the onboard BEC then here is a simple solution that works great on this ESC! On the board you will find a LM1117 Regulator, this regulator provides the power to the circuit as well as the output for BEC. Buy one more of these LM1117 and simply solder it directly ontop of the other one, use heat sink compound between the two LM1117's. This will not give you 1.6A but it will give you 1.2A constant and 1.6A bursts!

Very nice speedcontroller. It works very fine with the 18-11 2000kv brushless outrunner. This controller is even programmable with my Dymond programming card.

Really 6 grams weight, I can't believe until it arrived. Be careful when using 3S Lipos, use max 3 servos because the BEC is not so strong (0.8A) and can be easily overloaded (overheated) when using 3S Lipos and in case concurrent moving servos. Super for indoor planes.

This ESC is highly recommended. It's lightweight, works as advertised and flawless, at a very good price. I use it with the Turnigy 2204 motor, GWS0843, 2S 300mAh on my Nexus F3P monoplane. Three servo's (HXT500) connected are no problem for this BEC. Highly recommended.
