MultiStar ESCs are a quality speed controller at a fantastic price! Designed for simple installation and easy setup these ESCs have proven to offer excellent performance when used in Multi-rotor applications. If you're starting out in Multi-rotors and need an easy to install solution that is tested and proven to work with Multi-rotor craft then these speed controllers have you covered.
These V2 ESC's features BLHeli software for a very smooth yet linear throttle response, without sacrificing a rapid, crisp, response to any throttle input.
All Multistar series ESC's come with bullet connectors installed that are suited to the ESC's rated power handling. This allows for plug and play convenience by simply adding the appropriate battery supply splitter (3,4 or 6 ESC) and motor lead extensions from the Multistar modular accessory line. What could be simpler?
All Multistar ESC's feature an ATmega MCU that opens the door to customizable firmware – The V2 Multistar comes with BLheli software pre-installed, and for those so inclined a ease to use USB tool is available for Configuration and updating via the BLHeli Suite GUI.

Im running this on a yak 55 32" 3d foamie i built. This one is heavy at 350g with a 850mah 3s batterie due to the foamboard used (it should be 170g with a 2s 300mah batterie if the correct foam is used)
im using the motor and prop that was recomended in the build, at 3s it flies fine even hovers. ESC seems to be coping fineI use one of these on a 48cm flying wing of around 110 gram with the QAV1306-3100kv and a 2s nano-tech 1000mAh (+50g = around 160g). 5045 Prop is fine on 2s, for 3s a 4050 was almost to much.A fine ESC. Doesn't get too hot and provides me enough power.Very light, very small, but its not 10A.
Gets pretty hot even under 5-7 amps in hover mode while cooled by props air flow.
I used them in my Trifecta, they power 1806 motors.Love these esc. I kept going back to my loved afro esc but for the spidex a throw away quad this inexpensive but we'll performing esc is doing the trick.Great ESC for the price. the V2s are a MUST have for a budget multirotor.
I've paired these with the DYS BE1806s and they work quite well once programmed. However, it is important to note that when using the USB programmer you must remove the power lead from the USB programmer to this specific ESC as these ESCs have their own power UBEC.
Additionally, it should be noted that when upgrading the UBEC firmware, you must disable demagnetic compensation completely to ensure you don't burn up your high KV motors. (This features is only available for v13 of the firmware for these ESCS)
So far these have provided cool, steady power to my DYS BE1806s, and calibration was as easy as pie.
My only problem is one of these ESCs (of 6) came faulty and fried the windings on two of my motors. However HK was quick to replace them without issue.Pretty good ESC's. I noticed people are burning these things out a lot. You can't use a high KV motor. Max I would run is the 1900KV on a 250 quad. A 2150kv baby beast would surely burn it out. It works well if you're only planning to use it for a light weight low powered quad with a 5" prop. A 6" prop would blow this ESC. Know the limits and you'll be happy. They are oddly shaped which makes me a bit awkward to mount, aside from that, no complaints. Great price for a decent entry level ESC. Needs calibration out of the box.Small, silicon cable, work great with my motors.No problems running these ESC with DYS 1806 2300kv motors. It's just a shame that the on-board capacitor makes these ESC a little thinker than usual. If you are looking to re-solder the wires onto the ESC, you need to be quite careful, the solder pads for the motors wires are not on the edge of the board, but in the middle (HW Skywalker style!)The Bad:
1) One of 4 came dead. It was replaced by warranty, but god knows when it will arrive.
2) Cucumbercome hardware assembly.
2) Starting with BLHeli (and BLHeliSuite) 12.2 this ESC is officially supported.
One of working 3 was with different settings. So it has sense to check settings before use. Also keep in mind that you can only program it with BLHeliSuite or in programming mode with remote(not very handy). Also I was foolish to order only 4. You probably will need spare one anyway.
