Best crawler esc for the money. When building my platforms I start with this as it gives me total adjustability all in one box for cheap and works great.

I am sure by now that there are so many reviews for the Hobbywing 1080 that people probably get the point by now lol. But, just incase lol. The hobbywing 1080 is one of the best upgrades you can do to a brushed crawler setup. Its also one of the best "first" upgrades someone new to crawling can do and experience a huge improvement over ANY rig that has a brushed setup. It comes with a programming card that allows you to up your amperage to the servo, set drag brake and so many other different things all for like 43 bucks. You just can not beat that. Pair it with a 15-20 Holmes Hobby brushed motor and you have a very good starting setup with a very minimum investment. Highly recommend

So I received this esc for Christmas. I pulled it out, soldered motor wires and began to calibrate it. It let me set the neutral but it Won’t beep at all after I do the throttle calibration. Is this a bad esc or am I fling it wrong. I’m using the fly sky gt3-c as my transmitter
