This is the Castle Creations Phoenix Edge HV 160 50V 160-Amp ESC. The next evolution in speed controller technology has arrived With the debut of the Phoenix Edge series ESC's. The Edge series features a user programmable auxiliary wire capable of functions modelers have only dreamed of, until now. The white auxiliary wire can be used for helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an audible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, act as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock or as a receiver arming lock. Combined with the data logging capability the Edge series of controllers offer, users can enjoy unparalleled versatility.
The Phoenix Edge HV 160 is intended for use in helicopters ranging from 700 to 800 size, and giant scale fixed wing aircraft. As always, the Edge series of controllers offer industry-leading software functions, data logging, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter.

*NOTE: RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 160 amps for the duration of a single 10,000 mAh battery pack with the ESC in contact with a 5 mph airflow of 25°C (77°F) or cooler air. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C (212F). Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage components and may shorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current draw at full-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease the ESC’s operating temperature.
