The Turnigy SK8-ESC is a highly modifiable electronic speed controller designed with DIY Electric Skateboards conversions in mind.
The Turnigy SK8-ESC allows you to use sensorless motors to achieve smooth start-up from a stop versus traditional RC ESC's which may have trouble starting from a complete stop. It also provides strong. reliable and progressive electric braking.
You can connect your ESC to your computer and modify them using the VESC BLDC Tool. Our ESC ships to you tested multiple times during the production cycle and are ready to use. The ESC will provide optimum performance when configured for your particular motor and battery voltage.

received 2 VESCS, using in a dual motor skate board build, both work absolutely perfectly and the motor control is just insane, the variable regenerative braking and phase current/battery current limiting make it extremely smooth and efficient. GOOD work HKING. and of course the price is unbeatable.
