The Aerostar RVS range of brushless speed controllers is designed for fixed-wing aircraft. They feature super-smooth startup, linear throttle response, multiple protection features and a reverse function designed with seaplanes in mind, but also useful for other applications like Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL). Always ensure your motor has stopped before going into reverse.


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. If you don't need to use the reverse function, simply don't connect the second lead to your receiver and the ESC will operate as a normal one.


Installation is very straightforward as these speed controllers come "plug & play", no soldering required, they are pre-fitted with an XT90 connector at the battery end and 4mm gold connectors for the motor.


Programming can be done either using the transmitter and listening to the tones or you can use the dedicated programming card (see "Related Items").

wrong controller

Sep 25, 2021

I purchased the speed controller for my Avios Grand Tundra which has reverse for flying on floats but the controller you sent does not have reverse,I am not going to bother returning it as it will take more than three months to do it,not impressed.

For my Propdrive V2 4248 650KV

May 20, 2021

I pretty much bought my electronics for my HK Tiger Moth 1400mm from HobbyKing including this ESC. The was paired with my Propdrive brushless reviewed recently. It also has a reverse lead which I'm not using at present. Good value for money.

Lite weight

May 14, 2021

Relatively light weight compared to others of same power rating.
Have used at least 10 of the Aerostar ESCs of various ratings without an issue.

worked as it should

Jun 15, 2020

bought these to replace a couple of red brick ones , one of which was faulty and HK would not replace . These worked as they should but note - they are supplied with a XT90 plug with no "mate" and all my plugs are xt 60 so xt90 was useless - note to HK get the MFR to supply a "mate" with these otherwise there isnt much point in providing one half of a connector. I cut it off and used an XT60.

Great product

Nov 04, 2019

I am very happy with the speed controller. I installed it on my Cessna and used reverse thrust to stop the plane when it landed and it works great.
