    Default Need help finding a very small esc

    I知 looking for a small esc. I知 currently using a castle talon 35. I need something close to those dimensions and at least 25a. I do not want to use a pistix anymore and it has to be at least up to 4s. It needs to have a built in bec also. So to sum it up

    Size (around) 23mm wide x 49mm long. Height don稚 matter
    Built in bec
    No pistix needed
    25+ amps
    At least up to 4s


    Maybe my talon can used without a pistix, if it can I知 not sure what I need to do. Any help would be appreciated. Go. Lol

    What radio are you using? Spektrum I used an air ESC with the sub-trim throttle turned all the way back

    Not sure if I should even reply, but are you being serious? I said a bery small esc. It’s going in something about the size of the esc your talking about. I need a micro esc.

    I’m using a spektrum. That’s all I need to do is turn the sub trim back? Will I still get 100% throttle?

    I don’t think the traxxas one will do 4s?

    Spektrums work great with all Castle air ESCs. Just use the right settings, no PiStix required. Haven’t used the latter in many years.

    Make sure you set the Castle ESC for "Fixed Endpoints".

    It’s a small device that allows you to use an air controller with a ground transmitter.


    Thanks guys. I got it to work. So I just chopped a couple grams off and saved myself $25 for each time I need to use this.

    Does anyone have a small talon esc they would part with? I wanna see if a 25a will hold up or even the 15a talon.

    There's a couple used 25A and 15A talons on eBay. This one has a best offer tag on it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Castle-Crea...4AAOSwEzFZ47v6

    You could try one of these. I’ve ordered a few gforce motors and other things from here and theyve held up.

    I would look at maybe using a 20-30amp Drone controller... there are some super small ones out there and firmware you can easily modify for your needs.

    They come in all shapes in sizes and there are insaneeeeeeeeeee varieties.

    Turnigy plush work on wheel radio. Decent escs but need waterproofing. Should be the size you need with Bec.

    *Sorry, discontinued. Might grab a pair of the 100s since they modify easily for spec boats.
