Sold
HobbkyKing 30A ESCs with SimonK with bootloader enabled

Edit: I have these ready.
2x Sets of four HobbyKing F-30A
1x Sets of five HobbyKing F-30A

HobbyKing F-30A Tested and flashed with SimonK with bootloader enabled so you can flash them for the future thought the servo cable with the USB linker from HobbyKing. I cut a little flap out and use clear tape to cover the opening. You can barely tell. I tried the heat shrink from HobbyKing and it just made it heavier :/

Selling them for $15 plus shipping US shipping only.

If you're interested send me a PM so I get proper shipping with your address. I'll be doing USPS shipping. It's $6.

Any question feel free to ask.

Not to discourage you However Timcop already does this - Abusemark.com with almost no markup and shipping is real inexpensive. Competition is almost always good unless it causes the profit margins to get so low that it's not worth it for anyone to be in the business. in this case they are already so darn cheap ...

Anyway, good luck with your analysis

Shipping from abusemark is from Japan. I'm not trying to setup some business here. I'm just try to help people around me get them sooner and flashed.

I have all the stuff to do it but I still usually buy from TC cause after having done 16 myself undecided it was too much hassle if I only had to pay a couple bucks more to have them already done.

Shipping from Japan (or China) to West coast is cheap and relatively fast but it does cost more and takes longer to the East coast. In the end, it's all going to depend on how much you charge. Set your price and see how many orders you get! :-)

personally, I wouldn't pay more than what I paid for them on abusemark.com - it took a week to get to me with the cheapest shipping option (east coast)

I have been flashing them for fellow RCgroupers at no cost as well, they just pay postage both ways. Once in a while someone throws something my way, that's always nice but not expected or necessary.

Either way, good luck with the endeavor.

My idea was to sell the F-20A at $12 plus shipping and the F-30A at $14 plus shipping.

Remember that these HobbyKings are better quality than the rctimers. Also there's no back and forth. A lot of people just want to buy them ready to go.

Also I would re shrink wrap them with new heat shrink after cutting them. So they'll look new with a choice of red or blue heat shrink ( black is out of stock)

Just want to fund my next FC board (Crius AIO)

I don't know if anyone else is using 40 amps, but Ihave 6. and would like a couple more for an octo and some spares.

I'd be willing to get those and maybe some of the 30 amps as well for smaller quads.

Something you end up using a lot less amps than what you're motors are rated. I have 2830 motors that are rated at max 21amps but using ecalc I don't even get close to that lol. So the 30 amp ESCs I have with those have a lot of head room. The 20 amps would have been fine too. Shave off a few dollars when buying whole sets of ESCs.

I don't think I'll be buying the 40amp.

the usual avroto that on the internet.

had some dys 30 amps and those things gets HOT, not meliting shrink wrap hot, but hot enough to not trust it lugging my hexa.

got some hk 40a and had them drop ship to timcop, he did the flashing and sent it back my way.

now. hexa is happy, esc is cool, motors warm.

I know, and it could be the esc also.

but I get what you mean, just saying if youre ordering for a funch of people, might as well add some 40amps in there too

If it's just for myself, then I'll just order it with my account lol
