Microgyros ESC for Revell 1/72 Type VII U boat
« on: December 02, 2014, 12:36:29 pm »

I have one of Mike's ESC and plan to use it onboard David Welch's Type VII WTC. My question is, will it be able to handle the twin GWS LPS motors?

Those motors are normally used with 5-7A escs so 2 on a 20a should be fine..... also as its microgyros itll be 20 english amps :0

Initially I planned on using a Tamiya TEU 105 BK brushed esc but the position of the wires were a bit ackward.

I tried getting one of those cheap Chinese esc from ebay but ran into problem closing the transaction.

I presume you're referring to the microgyro's unit.
