The Aquastar 240A HV Water cooled ESC is a high quality ESC designed from the outset for serious boat racing.
It is a microprocessor controlled, high voltage, ultra-low resistance (0.75m?) Opto speed controller for 4 to 12s LiPoly batteries (up to 38 cells NiMH/NiCad) and uses 8 AWG wires (min 8mm connectors required) for maximum operating efficiency.
A unique feature of the Aquastar 240A is the integrated cooling plate between the MOSFET boards. When coupled with the dual cooling inlet/outlets this keeps the ESC cool under the most demanding loads.
This ESC has 8 programming options for flexibility, 300A surge capacity, adjustable switching rate and many more class leading features.
Programing can be done with your transmitter, programming card or optional USB adapter
• Microprocessor controlled
• Extremely low resistance
• 240A continuous (300A surge)
• Up to 38cells NiMH/NiCad or 4~12 cell LiPoly
• High rate adjustable switching (PWM: 8 KHz, 12 KHz, and 16 KHz)
• Optically coupled - separate battery pack required for radio
• Programmable low voltage cut-off, cut-off type, brake type & start-up
• Programmable timing (Auto recommended)
• Firmware Upgradeable
• Thermal cut-off (100°C)
• Safe arming program ensures motor will not start unintentionally.
• Auto shut down when signal is lost or radio severe interference is experienced for more than 3 seconds.

I purchased this as a novice, never set up a seperate sbec before, i used a leopard hobby 4082 1600kv and graphene 2 x 3S 65-130C 6000mah lipos. First startup the motor did nothing but then revved hard out.. I then fluked it by pushing some buttons on my transmitter and to my relief got full normal control, it screams.. If you dont know what your doing ask hobbykingI purchased this as a novice, never set up a seperate sbec before, i used a leopard hobby 4082 1600kv and graphene 2 x 3S 65-130C 6000mah lipos.

If you dont know what your doing ask hobbykingWell I tested this esc with my SAW rigger equipped with a 300A motor on 6S.Temp was ok around 42C so it looks good to me.One thing I did was add a cap bank with three Rubicon caps 35V 1000muf to be on the safe side .No data logging but definetively I don't care as it push my boat to its limit with no isuues.Yes it s the well known Sf 240 so I would buy more units as the price is about 30 bucks lower than in other stores.This is indeed the Swordfish 240 version one I believe.. The board and all components are lacquer coated to make it water resistant. Liquid rubber would make it pretty much waterproof and is easy to do as I have treated mine. It handles my Leo 5698 910kv with no problems. Throttle response is not as smooth as some ESC's, but, it gets the job done without a hiccup. I am running mine on 8s with a X450 prop. It is not a bad value at this price. I have not tried to use the data logging feature, so, I do not know if it is capable of this or not. Either way it is not a deal breaker for me. I would buy again.Just buy one of those, not tested yet.
this is a rebadged swordfish 240 pro V1, so no on-board data logging as said in the description, this is my regret as I wanted to test this feature.
It's not waterproof, as the swordfish is.
Will let you know how it work after tests.
