Basically I’m looking for a reliable/bombproof/simple 6s (or 12s) ESC to go with a TB’s 230kv 6374 for my new build. From what I can find, theres:
-HobbyKing X-Car Beast 150A/120A (Cheapest at <$70) (switch) -CC Mamba Monster 2 (waterproof, no enclosure needed) (Expensive AF $130+) (switch) -Hobbywing ezrun max8 (waterproof, no enclosure needed) (Also expensive AF $120+) (loud brakes???) (switch) -Hobbywing quicrun 08 (waterproof, no enclosure needed) (Decently priced $100) (loud brakes???) (switch) -FVT/TB’s 6s 120a (Cheap) (switch) -APS 7s EV ESC (Cheap) (no switch)
-TB’s 12s (upgradability) (no power switch) (needs UBEC or is there a version with one built in?) (I find the brakes are kinda unpredictable/not analog) (expensive @ $130+) -Psychotiller’s 12s (Does this exist?) (power switch?) (internal UBEC?)
Can people who have used the mentioned ESC describe their experience. My main concern is braking as I like to be able to slow down smoothly so I don’t hit stuff LOL. (smoothness, loud sounds?)
I know many of you will recommend the VESC, but I really don’t want to deal with the problems I see people having. Also, it seems like V6 will be out soon , so I’ll just wait for that instead.
Thanks so much.
