The Turnigy Marine waterproof speed controllers are packed with the latest technology and are up there amongst some of the best on the market today. These speed controllers have reached the ultimate IP67 level of protection (Ingress Protection), this is the standard that electronic devices are tested to. The 6 on the IP rating means it is "Totally protected against dust", the 7 on the IP rating means it is "Protected against immersion between 15cm and 1m.
The Turnigy Marine speed controllers are supplied with a "Copper Bar Heat Technology" water cooling system (exclusively patented) and extremely low internal resistance MOSFET's. Each one has specially designed software which features excellent start-up and acceleration performance, they have an outstanding amount of "punch" when coming out of turns when used in high speed boats. A waterproof on/off switch is fitted so that you can connect the battery then seal the hatch, the radio can then be switched on when you are ready to go.
2 running modes can be selected, either forwards only or forwards and reverse. The speed controllers also have multiple protections as shown in the features list below. Programming of the many features of the speed controller is easily done using your transmitter.
Note: "If you upgrade or have upgraded the firmware on the Marine / EZ-RUN / K-Force ESC, it will not work with the Programming card. You will only be able to do throttle calibration with the transmitter for the ESC and you will not be able to reset the ESC to factory settings".

one of the best ESC for marine RC boatsThis is the best ESC for boats over 800 mm. I have bought 5 because they are 100pcnt waterproof, tough, plenty of capacitors for long leads and have terrific punch. Don't hesitate - buy it.very good speed control for price run 6s all the time with leopard 4092 does not over heat awsomemuch better esc than the 120a, testing it know in my ospreyAmazing speed controller. Very reliable & a staple in Fast Electric racing.Top marks for this ESC. It comes with a capacitor bank which is a whole lot better than the Aquastar ESC. Single cooling pipe entry so you don't have to worry about having so many tube running around everywhere.
The leads are AWG10 so keep that in mind for both the motor connection and the battery connectionThis is the Turnigy branded Hobbywing Seaking 180a V3.
However, this one is actually superior to the Seaking branded one, because it comes with additional outboard capacitor pack the Seaking version doesn't get.
It comes with the standard 2 capacitor pack on the charge leads just like the Seaking version, however, it comes with a 4 capacitor pack in addition, wired directly to the base of the ESC.
I normally would buy additional capacitor banks to add to my Seaking 180, but this already comes with a similar set. So its an even better value.
Add that is over $30 cheaper than the Seaking branded one (over $50 if you consider the capacitor bank savings) and you have fantastic value in marine ESC!
In my opinion this is the best value Marine speedy available. Truly waterproof, great punch and now loads of capacitors added for reduced heat when running parallel packs.
