I would say it is the best value for money ESC. Fantastic for both rock crawling & racing (I'm an offroad guy). Works well with Hobbywing program box, packed with latest software update as well. Less programmable features compared to V3.1 and XR10 but good enough for 1/10 rock crawler / racer.
The only downside is, there is no separate port for programming, need to unplugged the ESC from Rx for it to be connected to program box. Suggest owners to get a bypass wire (such as the one from Holmes Hobbies) if owners are running on external BEC.
Very nice esc for the price, although you to get the most out of the esc you need to update the firmware to V3 mod to get the most out of it.
I would give i 4 stars but considering its age i would give it 5 stars!!

Nice piece of electronic ! Hobbywing proved that they are one of the leaders of electronics ESC. Their products have a great quality and are cheaper than others.
Don't forget the programming card otherwise, it won't be possible to program the ESC. Use the latest software (3.2) available on Hobbywing's website to get the most of your ESC.
I run one of these in both my DB01 and in my B44. This is quite possibly, the single best ESC you can buy, for the price. Reason being that it not only offers a massive array of tuning options, PC Programmability and very efficient throttle and braking delivery, but also because of its durability.
I bought one of these about two years ago, and it's still ticking to this very day in my DB01. I do suggest swapping the fan out for a Yeah Racing Tornado fan if you plan on running this as a Modified class ESC with any form of Turbo timing. Reason being is that it'll help you to squeeze that little extra bit of boost from your speedo without burning it out.
All in all, a very good unit. Would recommend this well over a Tekin, Castle or LRP system any day to any aspiring racer.
Great Product Cant Fault Hobbywing what so ever is as good as more exspensive brands like LRP,Nosram,Novak,Castle,Speed passion,HPI. The throttle profile is very linear and smooth but is also very responsive and no faults what so ever and has so many plus features and updatable firmware great for club racing or team racing.. also has a number of programbale features all ready built in and many more that can be added.
Installed one of these in in my HotBodies TCX sedan with a 5.5T motor to run in MOD Class. The throttle profiles are very linear and smooth they made my car very easy to drive. The programming card is a must. The power switch is a little big but that ok it gives a lot of surface area to secure the double sided tape. I would recommend this ESC to anyone for any class not only MOD.
