Description: Replacement: None. We’re no longer selling these speed controllers, but check out the rest of our robotics category. This page is for reference only.

Turnigy’s Electronic Speed Controller is a fine choice when high burst currents are needed for powering brushless motors. The ESC is fully programmable using the Turnigy programming card. Weighing in at 30g with a resistance of 0.0015ohm this little guy packs a punch.

This particular ESC is well suited for 1/10 cars or other similar sized robots. It is suggested that 9T 3650kv motors be used for best performance.


  • 35A continuous current
  • 190A burst current
  • low resistance
  • low weight
  • programmable breaking and reverse
  • 2-3 cell LiPo capable

Weight: 30g (1.06oz)

Customer Comments

  • I second the request for a more “Sparkfunny” controller, and a return to stocking motors. The folks at the local hobby shop just look at me with sort of a glazed, distant, stare when I start asking hackerish questions.
    (Frankly, I think building a human passenger capable smart quad copter piloted by trained ferrets is a perfectly sensible idea, and I don’t understand why the folks at Hobbi-land aren’t more helpful ;^( . )

  • and how can we program this one?
    I really think sparkfun should have speed controller breakout board which can be programmed with serial commands.. and controlled with Servo library or Serial, as one wishes…
    I have some props here with some RC esc’s but i dont like those, i want pcb’s so i cant on purpose programm it as i had many times with those rc things…

  • What happened to the brushless motors?
