Question

Need some info on brushless marine ESC's


Looking for an aftermarket brushless esc for my Fei Lun brushless rc boat. It's a 24" hull and I think the stock esc is 65A. There is a feature on my stock esc that slows the boat down when it hits LVC, which is a big compliment to get the boat back to shore without being stranded. So my questions are:

-What (budget, but good) esc would you guys suggest? Water cooled only.

-Will the aftermarket ESC have that same slow down feature like my stock does?

Turnigy or sea king (same thing just different branding) yes they have LVC that slows down your boat.

Yes. You should buy the programmer, well worth the price and convenience. It allows you set up when the LVC kicks in and adjust other parameters.

Would you suggest a certain esc for ease of use and programming? And of course one that I can set the lvc on. My stock is 65A, so at least 65A or higher (just not super high because I plan to run only stock motor or something very close to stock)

Also the esc must have reverse, because on my boat is self-righting so I need quick reverse/forward

The sea king and turnigy speed controls fit your criteria perfectly, I would get the 80 or 120 amp to give you upgrade head room

90 not 80, but I agree.

If it will fit in your boat get the Turnigy 120a, its cheaper than the 90a.

Yea I see that. I believe I will go with that one. That will be more than plenty enough head room for possible motor upgrades. My boat has self-righting feature so I just hope the transition from reverse to forward is quick.
