The NEW Race Spec Mini 20A AFRO is geared for the mini FPV racers, Featuring true 20A capabilities and yet is the same size or smaller than most 12A esc. This was made possible with a new 4 Layer PCB design to handle the current and dissipate the heat. Race Spec also ships with the latest firmware with auto one-shot detection and Comp-PWM enabled. Race Spec is plug and play race ready.
Developed from the ground up, we wanted to build a truly Multi-rotor specific ESC that would offer the best performance and value in the market today. We wiped the slate clean and looked to the community for inspiration and help in designing an ESC that truly could be known as “The Multi-rotor ESC”
Enter Simon and Hamasaki AKA SimonK and timecop. This combination of hardware and firmware expertise in conjunction with the Hobbyking in house engineering team gave us the edge needed to develop an ESC like no other and hence the Afro series was born.
Boasting high efficiency, all N-channel MOSFET design, jitter-free hardware PWM input, and smooth power response the Afro ESC series are set to change the expectations of multi-rotor pilots around the globe. The Afro ESC series ship with multi-rotor specific SimonK software preloaded! No need to reflash. For added convenience the Turnigy USB linker can be used via the PWM signal lead for any future software updates eliminating the need for complicated flashing jigs or the need to cut open the heat shrink.
This version of the Afro multi-rotor speed controller has been developed especially for the growing 250 FPV racing class. The demands of the FPV racer are very high but this speed controller ticks all the right boxes, it is very small and lighweight but still packs a mighty punch.

Royalties paid on each unit sold to SimonK and Hamasaki for their design work, without which the Afro ESC would never have been born, thanks guys!
The hardware is very good but the stock SimonK firmware is just garbage. Pro tip: you dont need to buy the programming card, you can use an arduino ($3.5 on ebay) to program them from blhelisuite.This is one of the few ESCs that i have bought and they don't burn as often as my earlier ESCs. I do recommend an ESC programming tool for your computer because my motor began stuttering at max RPM.These race spec escs are amazing considering they are just 12 euros a piece. I do suggest you get a ESC programming tool because the firmware that they ship in makes the motors stutter at max RPM.Great esc, upgrade my phantom1.
I start to upgrade all my quads with this esc.
Best Esc i ever had.
Great value for money.
THX HK!Great esc for long term.
Fit well in zmr250.
Good value for money!
Fiting well on my zmr250.
6 months and still going.
Great!Ordered 4 of these ESC's. 1 ESC didn't work and when it did it showed me a trick where magic smoke comes out of my motor. Got to buy a new ESC :/Works well BUT has serious sync issues with 2300kv motors (sunnysky 2204 2300kv in my case)! Luckily all you have to do is flash it with BLheli. (Note: you don't have to get the dedicated flasher if you have an arduino, you can do it with that as well)these little things are great
