Great ESC and exactly the kind of quality you would expect from hobbywing. I run 2 WP1080's in my comp rig and the esc is so smooth. With the added programmable features and included program card it's hard to beat the tune-ability of this esc. The BEC is amazing and easily handles my 1230sg @500oz. Dollar for dollar this is the best crawler esc on the market.
I read the instructions and the set up was easy. Everything works great. I like it better than the Axial AE-5L even though I had to get a light controller.
Hard to beat for the price! As others have said, this esc is smooooth! The included program card is nice and easy to make adjustments.
If you`re looking to upgrade over your RTR ESC, this is a good low cost choice.
Best bang for your buck! This high quality ESC is super smooth and easy to tune. I am very pleased with the performance of this unit and I am confident you will be too. UPDATE: I run these in two rigs now, an Ascender and MST CFX, and they have never let me down. This has easily become my GO-TO ESC for brushed applications. The only way up from here is brushless!
Have 2 of these and they are nice. Easy to program and use no issues with either and they come with just about everything you need.
Great ESC and exactly the kind of quality you would expect from hobbywing. A perfect combination of Quality - Price. The 15 programming parameters allow you to have the maximum control and obtain the maximum level of performance of power, control and acceleration.
As soon as I pulled the trigger on my transmitter.....smooth! Man this ESC is smooth. No jumpy low speed nonsense. I've only used this a couple days now, but the control feel is very good, the size is perfect, looks clean, is pretty quiet, and has a decent built in BEC for 40$ I'm buying another one for my other crawler too. I upped the PWM to 16k after the first run just to see if it could be even smoother and it is!
Not much more to add than has already been said about this stellar ESC, except to tell you to Activate the Freewheeling function for crawling. It's the 15th and last setting on the program card and unleashes the super smooth aspect of the ESC for crawling (don't use it for bashing). Try it and you'll understand all these rave reviews!
Simply a great waterproof ESC for brushed motors. Programmability is excellent and easy to understand. Only took 2-3 runs to determine optimal settings for my crawling preferences.
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.
Great ESC. Works flawless, easy to install, great programming options. Hobbywing does it right. Buy from AMain, doesn't get better than AMain, customer service is the best!
awesome esc for the money! very easy to program with the included programming card. this is my go to esc for budget build crawlers
Works good so far . Love how you can tune the esc to your liking
very easy to set up i watched a youtube video to learn how to tune it best and it works great paired with holmes hobbies brushed motor
I own three of these now for my crawler collection. Unbeatable unit for the money. Comes with the programming card, which allows tons of adjustments to be made to your setup. The nice touch for me was the changeable BEC voltage, which even flows up to 5 amps! Control and drag brake are amazing. Such finite control and a drag brake that holds the truck on steep inclines is invaluable for competition crawling, or even just impressing your buddies!
amazing esc when paired with a good motor, running it in a trx6 and I have great torque and speed control
Tried and true brushed ESC. Great power, reliable, program card, BEC Voltage to 7.4 and all for under $45 perfection.
Great waterproof ESC as others have said. Used them in all my crawlers, never had any issues. Programming is a snap with the included card.
this a very reliable product and looks great as well fits my truck really well.
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
