This is a bog standard electronic speed controller (ESC) for brushless motors - now with a T-Plug on the power lead, which can be cut off if required. These are ideal for our outrunner motors.
- Input voltage:DC 6-16V
- BEC : 5V @ 2amp (max)
- Running current:20A(Output: Continuous 20A, Burst 25A up to 10 Secs.)
- Size: 36mm (L) * 26mm (W) * 7mm (H).
- Weight: 22g.
If you've never used one of these before - ESCs do something pretty simply (drive a motor), but the manner in which they do this is pretty complicated. Because the motors being driven can demand large amounts of current, and have high torque, the ESC has a number of safety features to provide 'soft starts' which reduce the risk of damage to your project or model. There are also other protection features, like over-heat and throttle signal loss. The ESC can also provide braking to the motor and also offers different types of throttle responses to fix fixed wing or rotary platforms.
