Default Anyone using the Hobbywing QUICRun WP 1080 ESC?

The Hobbywing QUICRun WP 1080 ESC seems like an absolute bargain for an affordable brushed setup.

3S, 80 amps, 3A switch mode BEC (which will be plenty for a single 6v servo), $40 and it even comes with program card.

I've used a lot of HW stuff in helis and they are crazy tough.

Anyone used this?

I'm thinking of pairing with a Tekin 30T PRO, 3S and a SCX10 and RR10.

I run one in my scx10. Pretty good unit for the price. Also the programmer works well and easy to use.

Yes. I preorded the WP1080 before it was even available and I've been recommending it ever since I received it. It's the best bang for your buck in RC right now. You won't find a smoother, quieter ESC at that price range. And it's crazy that the programming card is included at $40.

I have one and will be getting a few more soon

Has anyone tested the 7.4v for the servo yet to see if its accurate?

No, but it really throws my servo around with the internal BEC so I would think it's pretty close to being 7.4V.

Cool
Thats good to know
I dont mind getting a bec just would be less mess if I didnt have to get one for all the rigs.

I have one in my SCX10 also. Just like everybody else has said, it works great, the programmer card is easy to use. I have the BEC set at the higher setting and it works that crappy stock servo over. Helps that I am running small 1.9's but still works great.

Installed one in my TT Kaiser XS project after PM discussions with Screamer. Had one run before I smoked the stock motor but could tell it was worth every penny. For the $$ it was excellent for this small a rig and I would have no problem putting it in a SCX. Very smooth, great brakes and stupid easy to program with the card. Until the motor let go I ran for just over 15min with outside temps at 71* and ESC at 83*. I'm running a small PHD 1050 at 6v and a sub 4lb RC but would not blink at running the BEC at 7.2v.

Is it a MMP, Holmes etc? No but damn close and for $40 it is a no brainer IMO.

You might want to blink... Lol
'cuz the 1080's internal BEC choices are for either 6.0v or 7.4v... not 7.2v

The internal BEC is only 3a tho'
so not sure if my amp hungry Savox servos won't be starved
or cause RX issues when plugged into that ?

Guess one should be sure their RX is up to handling 7.4v run thru.
I know mine will handle 8v... but not sure about my Savox servo's amp draw run thru the RX ?

Think I'd need stick with utilizing the HH's "Y" RX by-pass adapter.

I'm mostly curious about yer later statement and the comparison to more costly ESCs...
I currently run two of the HH's WP BR/XL's
So I am curious as to how the 1080 truly stacks up against the BR/XL.

Have you run both ?

Anybody ever put them in a head to head in comparison ? Link ?
~ Using 3s of course 'cuz the 1080 seems to have a 3s limit ~

Anyone run a higher voltage LiPo and an external BEC
to see if it can handle 4s ?

I'm tempted to buy one... 'cuz they're inexpensive
mostly just to compare it to the BR/XL
If it's nearly as good as an BR/XL...
keep it as a back up in case one of my BR/XL(s) might fail.

Does anyone have/run both the 1080 and BR/XL ?
My google search doesn't seem to come up with a head to head comparison.
Course maybe I suck at google.

The 1080 just came out.
I think for the money its great.
For my scalers its perfect.
They are lightweight, inexpensive, and have a bunch of customized settings.
I have to fix my throttle punch, it kinda sucks right now.
Hopefully the bec at 7.4 will push the D772 servo to where it will work well.

the D772 runs best on 7.4v
it's at its highest torque/spec rating at that voltage.
So to net the D772's full potential 7.4v it needs be.

But will your RX hold up to 7.4v run thru ?
that's likely the only real concern, if wiring it the traditional way.

Using the HH's "Y" RX by-pass and supplying voltage to the servo
directly from the primary battery/via external BEC is the better way.

And will eliminate all stress/load from a servo fed thru your RX.
Most RX's survive longer if fed 6.0v rather then 7.4v.

If ya know yer RX can handle up to 8.0v
7.4v shouldn't be too much.

But realize excessive amps drawn thru the RX by a servo
could create more internal heat and cause premature RX failure.

The D772 is not known as being an amp hungry servo...
But put the steering into a bind... and that servo's amp demand could rise.

I've a 1060 just now and a Waterproof AE-2 and i've just ordered the 1080 to try. If it's as good as i think it's going to be, i'll sell the 1060 and AE-2 for sure

Cheers guys! Sounds fantastic!

JMHO though I've used an honest 3A SBEC on an RC helicopters with 1.2m rotor at 2750rpm doing smack 3D running 4 full sized 6v servo's at the same time without failure.

I do generally go for 10A constant/15-20A peak but that is for 4 servos and they are all constantly heavily loaded. Remember, I can't have even a single glitch flying a 3D heli else I am going in.

JMHO but there is very low chance a proper 3A SBEC will cause issues in a 1/10 truck with a single full sized servo. Even if that is a decent servo.

As for 6v vs 7.2/8v servos. TBBH, many HV servos get rather warm on 7.4-8v. Yeah they put out a bit more oomph but it's at the expense of longevity. This is just my personal experience, but if I bought a $200 servo which puts out 20kg of torque @ 6v servo (or 4 of them for a heli) I personally wouldn't run them @ 8v just to get an extra 4kg out of them knowing it won't last half as long. If it was 32kg @ 8v vs 20kg @ 6v then I'd consider it but not for minuscule gains.

Just wondering if there is any reason people aren't running the Align DS615?

They are ~$50-60, put out 13kg of torque @ 6v, are 0.08 second @ 60 degrees and man do they take some serious punishment in regards to the ears and gear sets. I had a set I've crashed into the ground 8 times, over 600 crazy hard flights and they are still kicking without any work.

seems kinda low on torque for a crawler servo.
I won't run any servo in my crawlers having less then 400 oz in of torque.

Tho' currently my servos produce 500 oz in @ 6.0v and 695 oz in @ 7.4v respectively.

Many folk get away with utilizing less torque...
But just barely enough is not enough IMO.


Not every servo requires or uses the same voltage...

Some operate using 4.8 - 6.0v
and will fry if using a higher voltage.

others can run at 4.8 - 7.4v
but beyond 7.4v it could fail.

and then there's another servo that can be run at 12.0v
but I don't know what minimum voltage is required
for the servo to operate.

The rotor blade on a helicopter
would generally only have vehicle weight/air-wind resistance.

But for a RC crawler on the ground... those factors and more come to play.
There could be rocks or multitudes of other terrain obstacles
that might require more torque to overcome.

And a crawler's steering resistance is generally under more stress
then what an RC helicopter/plane/drone might be subjected to.

Most planes, drones or helicopters don't need servos with as much torque
as do ground pounding crawlers.

I just got WP 1080 and installed in the TF2 along with brushed Hackmoto V2 27T plus I decided to get the WP 1060 and 1060 sensored esc for my Wraith all hobbywing at the same time.....
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......

So it's oz-in vs kg-cm...alrightly...

So you're using a 500 oz-in servo at 6v which is about 33kg-cm.

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).

Been running my Quicrun 1080 for a little over a month now and I'm very impressed with it. It's at least as good (better I think) as a Castle Sidewinder 3. It's smaller, has more tuning options, comes with an extremely easy to use program card, I haven't even gotten it warm yet, and the price is unbeatable. The only thing budget about this ESC is the price tag and it may have some shy away from buying just because it seems too cheap to be any good. I highly recommend this ESC to anyone running brushed motors no matter what your budget is. You could spend more but there's just no good reason to. The Quicrun 1080 is a gem.

I have had my 1080 for around 2 months now after my new warrantied sw3 smoked out after the second pack i ran through it. I live in Michigan so i can't say how cool it runs, but it has been covered in snow and submerged in one of our several warm ups this year.

Programing is nicer since you don't have to break into your receiver box. You just plug right into the esc. They are really quite as well.

Been happy with it so far.

What in the hell did it just watch.Looks like some type of Alien or something.And to change direction without breaking anything...
Never seen any body fly like that,kinda cool i guess....
