Jive Pro 80+ HV Brushless ESC by Kontronik
This product was added to our catalog on November 4, 2014.
This is the Kontronik Jive Pro 80+ HV Brushless ESC. The Jive Pro looks similar to the rest of the ESC's in the Jive family. But we all know, looks can be deceiving! The Jive Pro is based on the KOSMIK processor, but includes a variety of updated features, and a unique chipset that will power your aircraft into the future.
The most notable improvement in the Jive Pro is the BEC. The updated BEC can provide all the voltage needed for power hungry servos when running 8V and up to 12S packs. Another exciting feature found on the Jive Pro is the module port that will allow it to accept and use all Kosmik modules. This allows use of the optional LogTel module (not included) to provide both logging and telemetry functions. Additionally, all Jive Pro ESC's include an integrated anti spark function.
The original Jive set industry standards with its outstanding RPM control and reliable performance. Building upon this heritage, the Jive Pro is the next evolution of perfection. With the ability to supply power at a speed that surpasses even the original Jive, the RPM control provided by the Jive Pro will astound you. The Jive Pro is equipped with a unique chipset that provides a greater sensitivity to power demands and removes any noticeable head speed variability. With this chipset, advanced algorithms, and the flexibility of the sensor port, the Jive Pro sets the standard for 80-120A electronic speed controllers.
The Jive Pro will meet the demands of all types of aircraft, as well as boats and RC cars, by simply activating the desired features. For Scale Helicopter Pilots, imagine being able to spool up to takeoff head speed over a full minute! Creating a greater level of realism for scale pilots, the Jive Pro will allow you to program your startup rate up to a full 60 seconds. All these features, and more, make the Jive Pro a top choice in the 80-120A ESC market.
NOTE "Compatibility Alert": There have been some reported cases of incompatibility with the following items: Kontronik Jive Speed Controllers, Scorpion Motors and KDE High Performance Motors. Some users have experienced no Initialization of the speed controller and an error code of 3 Flashes (Inductance too low). Some have success using the Kontronik Toroidal Core (KON9700) and wrapping one of the motor wires in a loop around the toroidal core.
