This is the Castle Creations Thunderbird 36-Amp Brushless ESC. All Thunderbird controllers are ready to fly straight from the package, no programming necessary. They are defaulted to AUTO LIPO detect and no brake. Should users wish to modify these settings, they may do so using their transmitter or with Castle’s incredible Castle Link USB Programming Kit (sold separately).

NOTE: Thunderbird controllers are not recommended for use in helicopter applications. The Phoenix controller is recommended for heli applications.
