- Includes a powerful 1.5A BEC
- Very simple to use and safe-start
The Silver Series speed controls for brushless motors are compatible with NiCd, NiMH and Li-Po type battery packs. The feature pre-installed Deans battery connectors and gold-plated bullet plugs for motor connections. In addition, they come pre-wired with universal radio connectors.
These speed controllers are so advanced that they require no setup! They automatically detect battery type and input voltage at hookup. This sets the low-voltage cutoff automatically.
There may be an incompatibility issue using ElectriFly Silver Series brushless ESC's with some AXI brushless motors.
This is the ElectriFly Silver Series 12 amp Brushless Electronic Speed Control. Great for small, lightweight, high performance airplanes from flat-foams to built-up 3Ds. Great for Outrunner style Brushless Motors, delivering 12A of continuous current with a built-in Battery Eliminator Circuit which can handle 1.5A. Simple to use and very affordable.

The "Silver Series" line of brushless electronic speed controls include many built-in safety features. One such feature COULD POSSIBLY CAUSE THE BRUSHLESS MOTOR TO STOP ROTATING when the transmitter's stick is at an extremely low position and/or if rotation of the brushless motor is impeded or obstructed in some way. This is NORMAL, as the ESC is detecting that a problem possibly exists with the motor and/or speed control. Rotation of the motor is stopped to protect the speed control from possible damage. WARNING!! If the ESC and motor have already been armed and the motor has been rotating normally, yet after moving the throttle stick to near minimum the motor suddenly ceases to rotate normally even if the throttle stick is advancedabove minimum throttle, DO NOT PLACE YOUR HANDS NEAR THE PROPELLER!! FAILURE TO OBEY THIS WARNING COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY!! From this point, moving the throttle stick up - even to full throttle might not cause the motor to rotate BUT THE MOTOR IS STILL ARMED AND ACTIVE DURING THIS TIME!! To regain control of the motor, move the throttle stick to absolute minimum throttle position and then advance the throttle stick upwards once again. Alternatively, you can disconnect the battery from the ESC, then re-connect thepower source and re-arm the system. NEVER get near the propeller if the speed control is connected to input power! ALWAYS make sure the throttle stick is at minimum position before attempting todisconnect the battery from the speed control!
