I've got a couple of Hobbywing 860's that I bought for the Clod Buster, and one unused for a truck TBD, so I probably won't pick this up. I wonder if these are similar to the 1080's at all much the way the 860 was actually a re-purposed 1060.

So is this the 4s capable 1080 I was hoping for? Looks to have all the 1080 features besides the selectable 6v/7.4v bec, but at least the amperage is up to 4.... sooo close!

MEH on the on/off SWITCH, i like the power button on the 1080.
Maybe there's a reason why they used that, instead of a power button like the 1080 ?

(.. Don't know the correct terms for the on/off buttons ..)

Well this on/off switch can mount on the side of the esc. If you ever noticed, the 1080 has a on/off switch mount on the side, but the power button housing doesn't utilize it.

I'm running the HW860 in a twin motor tug boat and it works very well. The HW880 would provide a bit more capacity.

The difference I see with the 880 on/off switch is there is no programming button built in, like the 1080 has, so programming probably has to be done with the LED programming box. Wouldn't be an issue for me as I find it way easier to program the 1080 with the programming box rather than playing around with a programming button. Keep 1 program box in my RC workshop and have another in my trail pack in case field adjustments are required on the run. Nothing on the Hobbywing website to say the program box is included with the 880. I would assume it is the same box as supplied with the 1080.

Cheap 4s brushed. I like. BTW why is it called a dual ESC if the outputs are merely parallel? Any ESC can be a dual ESC by that logic.

Anyway, I think I'm getting one.

Dual outputs for dual motors.

This has been up for a while. Does anyone have any feedback?

Can you use this with one motor if you choose to do so?

I guess no one has feedback, thats disappointing.

I have continued searching for information on the WD 880 and have some communication with Hobbywing since my previous post:

Q. Would the quicrun 880 esc allow me the option of using one motor instead of two? i am aware the qr wp 1080 is designed for one motor.

asked on April 9, 2019

A. Yes, the 880 will run single motor as well.

HOBBYWING North America Seller April 9, 2019


Q. ... will the WP 1080 do anything the 880 will not do?

A. The size would be the basic difference overall. The 880 is larger than the 1080 ESC. Features and adjustability, are the same. You can check out the instruction manuals and see the "Programmable Items" section #3, to see a list of each products adjustable features.

We also have a video that explains the features of each, and how they work as well:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7vSVPh3KuQ&t=


Q. ... I would appreciate verification of my understanding of the Brushed Motor limit data at the bottom of the spec sheets. The 880 Dual says with a Brushed Motor Limit with a 2S LiPo is 12T or RPM 3000@7.4v. Does that mean the most turns the motor can have is 12? It is 10T on the WP 1080.

A. A turn limit is the "Low" limit, so you can run that listed turn motor and "above" that turn.


My response: Thanks for the clarification. I placed my order.


I have had my RC for a few years, and it has had major makeovers by friends. I have never got into the details. Now I have taken a deeper interest. As a RC owner I'm somewhat a veteran, on knowledge I am a newbie. Hopefully the info above will be of value to others.

Has anybody got some run time on these yet?

I had this thought...

I just picked up a Bully2 rtr (minus radio, I bought it "used" but it had never been run) and while the dig function works, it kinda lags, and the esc is not smooth at all. I'd like to run dual esc's (not just dual outputs on 1 esc) and have the ability to run 4s. I've heard of people running dual 1080's, but those can't run 4s. What do you guys think about a pair of these 880's, de-cased/stripped of unnecessary leads & switches, only running 1 motor from each?

I'm not opposed to spending more if I absolutely need to, but I don't think I'd really benefit from higher end esc's at my level of use. Dual 880's sounds reasonable in my pea brain since they're cheaper than 1080's ($33 each vs $42, and I already have the necessary programmer) and have the same programmable features, which have been adequate for me. I know they're going to be physically larger than BRmini's, FXR's, or even 1080's, but by de-casing them, and ditching RC4WD's dig unit I'll still be ahead of where I'm at as far as size/weight. The lower voltage bec won't be a concern as I'll either throw a CC bec or possibly a 2s rx pack in the car to power the servo (either another 2290 or an A700) anyway. If I'm out of my mind, I'd like to hear why I shouldn't do it?
