BETA RUN: BBB Featherweight Brushed ESC
We’re doing a Beta run of the brand new BBB Featherweight Brushed ESC! Designed to easily run one 775 or two 550 style drill motors at up to 6S with 100A peak, it’s a great value featherweight drive ESC.
We’ve tested these ESCs a bunch in two and four wheel drive configurations including in Couch Potato XL at BBB’s May 2021 BEVs event we still want to be able to do a few tweaks before full release so we’re selling them at a reduced price for the beta run while we look to get more feedback from builders!
- Up to 6S lipo – we recommend 3-5S for our 18V drill motors
- Under 70g in weight
- Can drive two 550 drill motors per ESC – two of these ESCs are well suited for 2 or 4 wheel drive.
- Centre braking – for improved driving experience – set switch to middle position.
- Built in 5V 3A BEC
Do not use two BECs at a time – if using two ESCs cut the red servo connector wire on one of them.
LED, Switch & Wiring Instructions below.
Out of stock
LED indicator light:
Solid = Powered on. Receiver ready.
Intermittent Flash = Powered on. Throttle isn’t centred.
Continuous Flash = Powered on. No receiver signal.
(after changing switch position power cycle ESC to enable)
Left = No braking
Middle = Centre braking (our preferred setup for driving featherweights)
Right = RC Car style braking (not recommended)
Solder the two black wires (labelled M1&M2) to the tabs of your drive motor(s).
Solder the red wire (labelled +) to your positive line and adjacent black wire (labelled -) to your negative line.
Connect the servo connector to your receiver – note only use one BEC, so cut red wire on servo connector of one ESC if using two, or cut both and use an external BEC.
