Look, if you want the best brushless controller, you get a Roboteq for 500 bucks.
I can't quite afford that, so I got this instead, running it with a sensored Trackstar 4272 1900KV motor on a HobbyKing Berserker 1/8 chassis. I want the best possible control at low speeds, so I'm running it all geared down and with sensor, and it works pretty well!
Using a Raspberry Pi and Teensy 3.2 to control it, and training a neural network to stay on the track, so my use case may not be 100% mainstream, but it's a lot of fun!
However -- the fan needs to go. I'm running 3S, and the fan wails like a banshee. Given that there's a BEC in the ESC, why not just hook the fan to the BEC so it gets a more appropriate voltage for its design?Brilliant esc for the money, I bought this as my konghead was running absima sensorless and kept cogging, even on 3s, I'm now running this esc with an LRP 21.5t X12 motor and it's a different machine completely, super silky smooth drive and the low speed control is excellent, I can recommend updating to the latest hobbywing firmware to add boost and turbo features, so for me, the USB adaptor is a must, and should probably be included with it to be honest. I haven't tried running this esc on a sensorless so can't comment on that, but I was amazed at the performance for the price, the only drawback is the case does feel a little brittle but make sure it's Velcro'd down well and you should be golden. Make sure you can solder too, there's no connectors for the battery or the motor but HK make this clear when purchasing. Time will tell how good a bargain this esc isThrew this into an FS Racing Marauder for bashing. On 3s with a trackstar 4-pole it's insane. Barely any increase in temps on the esc after blistering speed runs. Only problem with mine was the BEC - it didn't like 3s. Added an external BEC and all is good. 4 stars because of BEC issue.This esc is great and easy to progam with the usb link. I paired it with a trackstar 8.5t only pulling around 35amp. ESC died after 2 battery packs on 2s.This ESC not only works great and reliable in my vehicle but costs half the price of all the name brand items.This is a great esc. I already beat on and works great with that purple 5400kv. No heat issues.Powerful and feature rich ESC at a very low price. I got a couple of these in 60A and 80A already and so far they never let me down.Using this in a BSR BT-4 1/10 touring car, coupled with a Trackstar 10.5T sensored motor. Only taken it out for a single run so far, but impressed already. It delivers ample power and didn't get warm at all. I don't have the programming box or USB adapter, so mine was running completely stock - how it comes out of the box. It is actually possible to do some programming via the button next to the on/off switch - look for the HobbyWing XERUN 60A/120A manual online and on page 10 it shows how to cycle through the options (from page 6) and set them without needing the adapter/programming card. A WORD OF WARNING - although the manual states that the default value for LVC is 3.0V (which is a bit low anyway), I found that mine was actually disabled from the factory. Luckily I hadn't run a full battery through but be sure to check this before running! I've now set mine to 3.4V. All in all a good easy ESC - wouldn't hesitate to buy another.heel goed is al ingesteld op vooruit en remVery good in price and performance. Setting with USB adapters is nice. But mine lasts only 2 month, less than 10 packs. You need good luck. I hope I had...
