i didn't expect much when i bought this cheapo ESC to use in my mini e-revo. i'm pretty impressed how good it is! it works extremely well and they didn't lie about waterproofing. i like all the programming options and the size of it. i'd recommend this for every small rc car out there!
I put this in my Losi mini 8ight truggy with the trackstar 380 4400kv motor, 3 cell lipo, 60 spur, 12 pinion. This this rips!! The esc and motor stay around 100 degrees, this speed control pushes this 1/14 scale around no problem. I'm very impressed, it's smooth, has plenty of punch, good brakes, can't go wrong here.
Click on this link below to see pics of the ESC in the Redcat Racing Volcano-18. The ESC performs flawlessly. It works as advertised and I just love it. It's worth buying. I had other problems with the truck that don't have any bearing on the electronics that were installed. https://youtu.be/Fbl44PkXkvE
I teamed this ESC with a Turnigy XK2430-5300kV Brushless Inrunner Motor, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__75393__Turnigy_XK2430_5300KV_Brushless_Inrunner.html , that I installed in a Redcat Racing 4WD Volcano-18 which is, for the most part, a 1/18 Himoto 4WD Mastadon. There are some photos for you to see in the file section of the Inrunner motor listed above of how I installed this combo. The Volcano-18 came originally with a 370 size Brushed motor that stopped working on its maiden cruise in the dirt at Clarks Park in Philly. I picked this combo because. I can get some nice speed runs on asphalt on 3S and on 2S I can bash all day in dirt. The 2430 size of this motor is equivalent to a 370 size motor so it was an exact drop in fit. I had to add a receiver since the original was a 2in1 RX/ESC Combo deal. This setup made this lil MT a BEAST!! Now, the Truck should outrun my 1/18 Brushless Himoto 4WD Spino.
Excellent product, works very well on the E-Revo 1/16. Small, reliable and waterproof. Not recommended if you plan to use it with two nickel metal batteries but if you will use one 2s or 3s lipo (more than enough for the merv) you have a great deal with this ESC.
