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.
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!
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.
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.
This is gonna be lame but all I can say is WOW! This has to be 50 characters long so
I got these for both my SCX10.3 and SCX24 JLU and while you won't notice the weight on the 1/10 rigs, you'll definitely notice it on the 1/24. Plus with all the wires, it really weighs it down a bit. Kinda makes my SCX24 a LCG crawler or slider or whatever the current term for the belly-riders. I think I could've gone with the 1060 but I said why not and just went with the 1080. No disappointment here for either of my SCX rigs. The drag brake is on-point and the throttle response is as fine as you can expect it to be. Stock, it does come with pre-soldered XT60 plugs for the battery.
And as a side-note, you can configure the ESC to push out 7.4v for your HV servos BUT, the tiny micro servos cannot handle anything higher than 6v. Keep that in mind IF you're getting these for the SCX10.3 and want to use the 2-speed and/or dig features where they want you to use the Spektrum SX107 Micro Servo. You'll want to use an external BEC for the HV servo and keep this running at 6v.
This ESC is awesome. I am running this in my Axial UMG10 kit build. Small footprint with plenty of power. It has performed flawlessly. Very easy to program with the included program card. I would highly recommend this esc.
I'm not to impressed with this ESC its been problems ever since I took it out of the box as it will not calibrate to any of the transmitters I tired and I tried three of them.
This is one of the best deals you can buy for a crawler. I have these in 3 of my 5 crawlers. #4 is still in process and #5 will be started this weekend. The program features are excellent and allow a custom touch to how your rig handles. If you run brushed I highly recommend picking one of these up.
Hi, usually run brushless sensored systems, this time I tried this for a budget build, paired with a HH 550 12T 5 slot motor, WOW I'm impressed, and the ease of tuning with a tuning card, you just can't go wrong......
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
This esc is simply amazing. The adjustability is awesome and easy to understand. I'll definitely use it in more builds to come!
Excellent speed control the plug in programmer is easy to us and there is a lot of adjustability. I would highly recommend this to anyone running brushed crawlers! And for under $50 you can't beat it.
Over time I have purchased one for each of my 3 kids trucks they are a great esc with decent specs the program card is a bonus I have them running a 12t titan in stadium trucks it's a great combo for a kid
