Full-sensored Mode Supported
The first 1/8 scale competition ESC which can work the full-sensored mode at all times (when pairing it with a HOBBYWING matching motor).
Small & Light Structure Design
Small (4.6/10.8/0.8mm shorter than XR8 Plus in length/width/height) and light (36.5g lighter than XR8 Plus) structure design greatly simplifies the installation of the power system (eps. for vehicles like buggy and touring car with compact chassis).
Programming / Upgrading / Data reading wirelessly
With Hobbywing's "WiFi Express" module and iPhone or an Android phone (with the HOBBYWING WiFi Link software installed), the user can remotely program parameters, upgrade firmware and check relevant data of the ESC without leaving the control stand.
The XR8 SCT provides an exceptionally smooth off-throttle coasting function, which simulates the feeling of inertia and momentum of a large-scale car driving experience. This can greatly improve the performance of builds utilizing large, high-powered motors as electromagnetic drag becomes a substantial factor in sudden deceleration when in the off-throttle position, adversely affecting driving performance and overall maneuvering.
Capacitor Thermal Protection
Capacitor thermal protection implemented by the XR8 SCT will effectively prevent capacitors from exploding and causing irreversible damage to the ESC due to overload.
High Voltage Built-in BEC
High voltage built-in BEC with an output current of up to 15 Amp and a switchable output voltage of 6V-7.4V allows users to use various high torque and high voltage servos
High Reliability & Durability
Built with the most rugged and high-quality components and coupled with cutting-edge firmware, the XR8 SCT is able to deliver unmatched power and performance for even the most hardcore of racing applications, but is also responsive enough to protect itself from damage due to overloading due to physical abuse, overuse or even human error.
Advanced and Secure Electronic Switch
Electronic switch with a lifespan of over 50000 on/off cycles, housed in a completely waterproof, dust-proof and shock-resistant design.
Ultra-Reliable Cooling System
HOBBYWING's patented cooling technology utilizes proprietary heat-conductive copper bars to rapidly and effectively transfer all internal heat from the MOSFET board to the integrated CNC machined billet aluminum heatsink housing. The cooling fan adopts a
shockproof mounting which effectively reduces the possibility of fan damage due to vehicles frequent jumps.
Compatible with sensored/sensorless brushless motors. In sensored mode, its compatible with most popular sensored brushless motors on the market. In sensorless mode, its compatible with 99% of brushless motors on the market.
Full sensored mode supported (when pairing this XR8 SCT/Plus ESC with a HOBBYWING matching sensored) for a very linear & smooth power band.
Turbo Timing technology (implemented by this XR8 SCT/Plus ESC)to unleash the maximum power of a HOBBYWING matching sensored motor.
Super internal switch-mode BEC with switchable voltage of 6V/7.4V and cont. /peak current of 6A/15A for easily driving big torque servos and high voltage servos.
Highly reliable electronic switch avoids troubles which may happen to traditional mechanical switch due to dirt, water, dash and etc.
Separate programming port to easily connect the LCD program box to the ESC.
Proportional brake with 9 levels of Maximum Brake Force and adjustable Drag Brake Force range from 0 to 100%.
9 levels of acceleration/punch from soft to aggressive for different vehicles, tires and tracks.
Innovative COAST function will make the RC vehicle coast like a real car after you release the throttle trigger, avoid the sudden slow-down (this sudden slow-down often happens to motors with very strong magnetic force), and brings you the great control feel.
Capacitor Protection: Innovative Capacitor Protection effectively protects capacitors from exploding and causing irreversible damage to the ESC because of overload.
Multiple protections: Motor lock-up protection, low-voltage cutoff protection, thermal protection, overload protection, and fail safe (throttle signal loss protection).
Advanced programming via the portable multifunction LCD program box or WiFi module.
Firmware upgrade via HOBBYWING multifunction LCD program box or WiFi module (item sold separately).
