This is the Traxxas XL-5 Waterproof ESC. Designed and engineered by Traxxas, the XL-5 Electronic Speed Control handles the elements while smoothly supplying power to the motor. This high-performance ESC is packed with impressive specifications that are normally only found on more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-5 features a completely waterproof design, three throttle profiles, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-8 cell compatibility, and built-in BEC. High frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. An exclusive feature on the XL-5 is the patent pending Training Mode™. This profile reduces the overall power output of the XL-5 by 50% making it easier for young or new drivers to develop their control skills before unleashing full-power operation. The XL-5 is manufactured by Traxxas to ensure the highest level of quality and support. The XL-5 is backed by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronics Warranty.

Traxxas High-Current Connector:
The XL-5 ESC is equipped with the Traxxas high-current connectors for restriction-free current flow.

Patent-Pending Training Mode:
An exclusive feature that places the XL-5 ahead of the pack is the patent pending Training Mode. This feature reduces the overall power output of the XL-5 by 50% making it easier for new drivers to control their model.  When they’re ready, simply change profiles to unleash full-throttle action.  Only Traxxas has it!
