hi to everyone!
this is swordfish ESC...or if you prefer turnigy aquastar. Many people broke this ESC because they overload it with hungry motors. I install it in a 82cm mono boat with twin motors 3672 XK and 2 aquastar 120A. I've installed 6S Lipo pack and go! I've installed also a huge double cooling system. They are cool and smooth also with 6S. Tested internal bec and it works well. Attention: unscrew nipples and clean the orrible glue, than use screw loctite or similar in order to seal them properly.
For electric tips I installed a 6mm gold connectors: 4mm is at limit.

Great ESC, i bought it after my other turnigy matine 120A was burned. programmed it with my futaba FHSS radio system. since then no problem at all.

it works perfectly even with abusing, i got KD3660 2700kv brushless motor with this ESC (i know the motor is for rac car). with 4S lipos w/5800 30c packs it gave me 8mins on almost full throttle. on 5S lipos the ESC works flawlessly, but the motor getting hot lil bit. on 6S still flawless but the motor became like oven heat. but still working :)

the highest temp i got on this ESC is 122F in 110 F weather.
i live in Kuwait, and u can do a search to know more about Kuwait weather in this time of the year.

Have been running a pair of these on Velineon motors in my Villain for a year.. Work
Great. Now one is on a 3657 inrunner in my Supervee27. Smooth and fast.

That all being said, when they arrived, I removed the heat shrink and at the suggestion of previous reviews, tightened the water nipples. I also dramatically improved all the main in and output power solder connections. I am fanatical about efficient current delivery. I then added a few additional coats of conformal coating, just in case they got wet.

I bought an Eurgle USB interface, and that, combined with the software has had both ESCs running perfectly.

Great item! This ESC is simply to program and really good. I try it on my ARPRO 700 with 3300rpm/v brushless inrunner... Esc doesn't heat and has a great responce! Thanks Hobbyking!

Excelent esc, i'm using it in a genesis boat and power and reliability are great. Using over 100A over 7 min and temperature is very low.

firmware is available from offshore electrics.

look for sword fish 120, "click here to DL folder with software and manuals"



you'll get the filename "shep_026v_120a.Dlc"

-

power up your ESC while holding full throttle. at first beeps release throttle.. esc arms and throttle range programmed...



next, unplug ESC and ditch the inbuild BEC (red wire) and go for a seperate UBEC. you will never have to program the throttle again.
