Author: Unknown I used to be a Castle only fan until I tried these controllers out and they are an excellent buy at a fraction of a Castle 80's cost. The fact that I no longer need to run a separate BEC for applications requiring 4s-6s just makes me a even bigger fan!!!
Author: Unknown Bought this to replace my damaged CC 60 amp ESC at about a third of the replacement price and haven't regretted it. Also allowed me to dispose of the separate UBEC since it has a switch mode BEC built in - great! I did find that I had to set the Timing to High as recommended in the instructions to suit my big Himax outrunner (HC5018-530 on 6S Polyquests, 21.8volts @ 57 amps giving 1362 watts static on 13x6.5 APC-E)
After a range test the club members were impressed by its performance. Hand signals to confirm its function were hardly seen on the end of the test so we stopped it. No servo-vibrations were noticed during this test so the signal stayed clear overall. The 3 test flights afterwards only confirmed the first experiment. Five stars for doing its job but what a pity no instructions are available.
Very pleased with this purchase
