The Aerostar RVS range of brushless speed controllers is designed for fixed wing aircraft. They feature super smooth start up, 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 & 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 XT60 connector at the battery end and 3.5mm 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").

ESC 40 A

May 17, 2021

Have tested it but not used in an aircraft yet. Seems like a good thing. Came with the fittings installed unlike some ESC's I have purchased before. Price was reasonable and was in the Australian warehouse so no extra shipping charges.

Great item for the purchase price.

I put it in an F9F panther and it works beautifully. Upon touchdown hit the reverse stops immediately. Very pleased with the purchase and will buy again. Want to buy the 60 amp but it is out of stock.

Works great on my arctic-cat

Jan 06, 2021

Sealed up with a bit of liquid electrical tape, and works great for the amphibious Arctic cat.
Super simple, just plug the extra line into another channel (with switch function), and when you switch reverse thrust is activated!

Excellent quality, minimal cost!

Jan 02, 2021

Bought this as replacement for a faulty Volantex unit.
It has now provided many hours of hassle free use.
Setup is exceedingly easy, though if I standardise all my future planes on AeroStar, I will get a programming card

Great product for the Money

Sep 24, 2020

A great product for the money, when the ESC on my helicopter burned out, I saw so many Esc priced at $80 or more, AeroStar replaced the $80 ESC at a fraction of the price and it works just as well.
