The Aerostar range of brushless speed controllers are designed for fixed wing aircraft. They feature super smooth start up, linear throttle response, multiple protection features, all at a fantastic price.
Although primarily designed for fixed wing aircraft they do also include a soft start and heli mode making them a good low cost alternative ESC for your next helicopter project.
Installation is very straightforward as these speed controllers come "plug & play", no soldering required, they are pre-fitted with an XT60 connector and 3 x 3.5mm gold connectors.
Programming can be done either using the transmitter and listening to the tones or you can use the dedicated programming card (see "Related Items").
