Running this in a converted Kyosho Inferno with a Turnigy 1900KV Sensorless 4 Pole Brushless Motor, powered by 5s LiPos.
I'll start with the positives: Stays cool! Great value, nice quality, nice choice of settings, no cogging at all for me so far
Only two downsides for me: You can't remove the plastic case covering the fan (or I haven't figured out how to do it and there is no obvious way, and I am a pro at taking things apart usually!) and so cleaning out bits of dry grass or whatever junk sneaks its way into the heatsink becomes quite difficult. Over time gunk is gonna build up on that heatsink reducing its effectiveness, and I think when it comes time to really give it a clean, I'm gonna either have to spend hours fiddling around, or just straight up cut the plastic shroud off and glue it back together after, not ideal!
Second downside.. the Hobbyking ESC Programming card.... doesn't work with this ESC out of the box! I had to plug it in to my PC and change the firmware completely to another brands firmware! This was the biggest source of frustration, spending £10 on a card to make programming simpler, and then having go around the block to get it to even be compatible. I'll leave the same review on the Programming Card itself, but I think it also belongs here because you'd think a HobbyKing ESC and a HobbyKing ESC programming card advertised on the page of the ESC would be compatibile straight out of the box without needing to install ~another brand entirely's~ firmware!
That said, I still recommend this ESC. But for programming, just stick with the beeps!

This ESC performs good on 4S in my Emaxx just as long as I don't plug in the sensor wire to the motor. In Sensored Mode, this ESC will take off buttery smooth, but won't accelerate. If I jab the throttle it cogs VERY badly in sensored mode. Unplug the sensor wire and it flies perfect in sensorless mode. Disappointed since I planned on using sensor mode. I can only give this 3 stars. ESC did not make good on its promises.

Hi all. Bought this item many months ago so warranty has run out. Hooked it up for the first time today and well........ Lots of smoke and noise. Nearly took the car out with it. Won't be getting another
