The Birdie range of ESC's are.. well.. CHEEP! CHEEP!
No frills (or feathers) here, just great value for money! Each and every Birdie ESC is QC checked by Hobbyking and placed under a 2 minute load test ensuring your Birdie will be ready to fly!
If your looking for an ESC with basic features and reliability at a bargain price you better bag a Birdie before they all fly the coop!

Did a bench test with one of these, first on 3S, with a NTM propdrive 50-50 580Kv. Motor ran fine.
Then benchtested with 6S, ESC immediately died in smoke. Motor never started running, just moving back and forth erratically. Opened the ESC up, three FETs showed visible damage.
Filed a support request, will keep everyone here posted on the progress. So far, this ESC is pretty disappointing for me.As the item listing says. Nothing fancy, it just works.
