Cobra 80A ESC with 6A Switching BEC


The perfect compliment to a Cobra Brushless motor!

SKU: C-80A-esc Categories: , , Tags: ,


Cobra Speed Controllers are designed with a relentless pursuit of exceptional product quality. These speed controllers are the perfect compliment to a Cobra Brushless motor, but will also work with virtually any other brushless motor on the market as well.

Cobra Speed Controllers are simple to program, and in most cases, they can be used right out of the package. Three of the Speed Controller parameters can be set without a programming card: Brake Mode, Battery Type, and Timing mode. The remaining parameters can be set with the optional ESC Programming Card, C-PROG-ESC, which is available separately.

All Cobra Speed Controllers come with an internal BEC circuit to power your radio receiver and servos. The 80A comes with a 5.5 volt switching BEC rated for 6 amps of current to handle the larger digital servos.

Because of the wide range of different motor connectors used on this size speed controller, the Cobra 80A ESC comes without any bullet connectors installed. The motor leads are pre-tinned and ready to solder on your favorite connectors. 4mm or larger bullet connectors are recommended for this size speed controller.

  • Basic Programming available through Throttle Stick
  • Throttle Range automatically detected and set for smooth, linear throttle response
  • Three different types of Low Voltage Cut-off available for Li-Po, Ni-XX or LiFe batteries
  • Three different LVC levels for each cell type: 3.2, 3.0 or 2.8 Volts/cell for Li-Po batteries, 0.9, 0.8 or 0.6 Volts/cell for Ni-XX batteries and 2.8, 2.5 or 2.2 Volts/cell for Li-Fe batteries

  • Three different Motor Acceleration Rates, High, Medium and Low
  • Safe Start-Up: The ESC will not arm until the throttle is in the idle position
  • Locked-Rotor Protection: If the motor is blocked so the prop cannot rotate, the ESC will automatically shut down to prevent damage
  • PWM Frequency is set to 8KHz for best operation on a wide range of motors
  • Over Temp Protection: Shuts down the ESC output if temperature exceeds 230F (110C)
  • Auto Power Cut-off: If the throttle signal is lost for more than 3 seconds, the throttle will reduce to idle to prevent fly-aways.
