Finally a motor controller that can operate our larger motors at their full potential! Perfect match for the larger 8038, 8057 and 12030 motors!
Running a 180 MHz 32-Bit processor these will deliver maximum smoothness, unmatched linearity, with ultra-fast throttle response for unsurpassed flight control. With peak power ratings up to 30kWs, these ESCs will have no trouble powering your craft.
The APD developed (proprietary) firmware ensures unmatched low-throttle and starting characteristics. Ultra-smooth starting and ramp-up characteristics ensure your drive-train is safe. Features include PWM-frequency dithering to avoid PWM-commutation synchronisation, adaptive motor timing advance and proprietary developed Active Phase-Current De-magnetisation (APCD). APCD along with Synchronous rectification ensure maximum ESC efficiency is achieved.
Designed and manufactured in Australia using only the highest quality components, ensuring no sacrifice in reliability.
Aerospace grade ceramic capacitor bank for lowest possible ESR and maximum reliability, no more dried up electrolytic failures!
Multiple operation modes:
Normally used for watercraft and aircraft not requiring reverse.
Incremental + Linear power ramp control.
Instantaneous input = Output Step Response.
Soft-start for drivetrain protection.
Same as normal except for active torque control, which applies a motor phase current limit that ramps proportionally with higher motor duty-cycles.
