I just picked this up for my wraith kit. Just need the electronics to complete. I am familiar with hobbywing after using a brushless setup for my Yeti and knew this was the go to company for a budget friendly ESC. The cost for what you get far exceeds the more expensive brands.

I've own a few of there esc and happy with there product plus they been around for a while so they must be doing some thing right......

Attachment 355196

Edit : Plus they have the XT60 plugs that i use which is a bonus.......
I am thinking of getting a couple of the WP 1060's for my Kyosho Blizzard SR along with a V-Tail Mixer. Cheap and could be more fun?? Maybe.

Ha! Yeah, everyone thinks helicopters are really sedate and somehow like drones...err...no...lol

They are insane and totally addictive...but really, REALLY hard to fly...and very dangerous.

Ok, so basically they are just geared down so you won't have anything like 0.08/60 degrees. Slow but torquey. Like the old 35kg Futabas.

In the heli world a good servo is say 0.06/60 degrees with ~24kg kg-cm at 8.4v. They use 3 servos simultaneously to control the swash so that is still sizable load wise.

Drones (quad) don't use servos (just 4 brushless motors and 4 speed controllers) though sizable planes use hugely powerful ones like the crawlers but might have multiple on a single wing.

Here's an example of a 3D heli in action anyway to give you an idea of the forces (which are pretty violent).

Cool video... my friend used to mow the grass with his. Lol
Think he was sponsored by Airtronics during his competitions.
He'd fly his just like you do.

Too expensive for me when a mistake is made

But yeah... IMO servo speed is not as critical in a crawler as it is for an RC helicopter.

I'm sure stunt helicopters still require a respectable amount torque.
But it's definitely got to be a really fast servo to do what you're doing.

My Savox 1230 isn't even close .16/60* @ 6.0v = 500 oz-in ( 36 kg-cm )

My Savox 2290 fairs better .13/60* @ 7.4v = 695 oz-in ( 50.04 kg-cm )

but neither hold a candle to the speeds you utilize.

But an RC crawler is not an rc helicopter and share little in common.

My bad on the drones... I forgot they don't use servos.
Guess you can tell I don't own one !? Lol

These are the helicopters that can decapitate a person! I remember seeing in the news about a newbie testing his helicopter and it chopped part of his skull off! This alone has me frightened plus it looks way too fast and crazy!!

Is that guy in the UAE?? Tareq Alsaadi sounds Arabic....??

So one could assume that the internal BEC would not be able to hold up to both a servo and a servo winch?

Seen a few peopl on one of the Axial pages on FB saying the run these on 3s with no issues.
3s on 20t barely gets warm and another with 3s on 35t and 500oz/in servo on internal BEC and works great.

I ran two 25 minute courses today with the 1080 on 3s and a 35t motor. Used a solar d772 on 7.4. No bec. Worked like a champ.

I've only had my SCX10 II up and running for a few days, but I'm running the 1080 ESC. Between this and a Sidewinder 3, the 1080 worked better. For the price I'm not sure you could beat it. Instead of messing with Castle Link, the $40 price included a program card. I'd have no problem buying it again.

loved the heli u-tube , I can relate, built my first 450 heli, first flight was by one of the best in the world. My first flight and lots after made me a very competent repairer of broken flying machines, was no good at flying them. Hence, tiny trucks, different genre, but, equally as challenging.

Tried my 1080 now.
Old Venom 17t brushed motor
SCX10 chassis with 1.9's (weighted)
15/87 gearing
3s lipo
No external BEC
20KG servo

After about an hour of trailing / bashing the ESC barely got luke warm
Lots of settings to play with. Only downside i had is the cable that connects to the ESC to programme it is a little loose and can lose connection if you're not absolutely still whilst changing settings.

Odd. My programming card connection isn't loose at all. Do you think it's the ESC plug or the programming card cable?

I'm running the WP1080 on my GCM Skeleton build and I'm very impressed with it. I've run many HW ESC's in many other buggies and such and always thought they worked great, the programming card is easy to use and way better than damn flashing LED's!

Just got one of these in a trade, I've always used HH or castle stuff so I'm curious how this will do. Great price new and the programmer is super easy to use.

What is the lvc for lipos with this esc? The manual speaks only about lvc for Ni-Mh batteries.

I have one that's going to go in my TF2 running a tekin 55t motor and savox 1231sg servo with BEC. Can't wait to try it out. Heard nothing but great things about this ESC.

I've been beating on mine for a couple weeks now, seems to be the budget ticket for sure. Just a 35t but it doesn't even give it a workout running 5000 mah back to back. The lighted push button on/off is pretty cool too.

Yup. I've looked through the manual and can't find anything about LVC for lipos. And, why do you need a LVC for Ni-Mh? I've just ordered one of these and I guess I'll start out with the "High" setting and check the cell voltage when it cuts out and adjust from there. Might have to run a low voltage alarm as well when I run the first pack through it, just to be on the safe side. Does anyone have any idea what LVC for the Low, Medium, and High setting is for Lipo batteries? Inquiring minds need to know.
