Power Series

With Silver Series brushless ESCs, the only way their performance would be any easier to enjoy is if they came already installed. As it is, hookup takes only seconds — and setup takes no time at all. Silver Series brushless ESCs do it automatically on hookup, and offer the option to use brake (or not) with a flick of the throttle stick. And with eight affordable models to choose from, there's a Silver Series ESC for almost any airplane and brushless motor combination.

  • Compatible with LiPo, NiCd and NiMH batteries for maximum versatility.
  • Ready to use, with leads and Deans® Ultra Plug® Connector, gold-plated bullet plugs for motor and universal radio connectors already attached.
  • No setup. Detects starting voltage at hookup — and sets the low-voltage cutoff automatically!
  • Superbly smooth, precise and responsive throughout the throttle range. Transition from instant full-power thrust to all-power off in the same heartbeat and enjoy longer flights and cooler operation in the long haul.
  • BECs deliver true rated current and the extra amps that digital servos — or extra-servo setups — require. (Except SS-45D & SS-60)
  • Brake/No Brake operation. Stop folding props cold — or let fixed props freewheel.
  • Protect pilot, plane and ESC with Safe Start programming, and automatic heat and current overload features.
  • Great for use with most inrunner and outrunner motors.
