This is the Viper R/C VTX10-BE "Black Edition" ESC & Brushless Motor Combo, with an included VST8.5 motor and EZ Link programming card. The VTX10-BE features an incredibly versatile adjustable BEC, innovative V-LINK software and was developed specifically for 2S applications. The Black Edition combines the VTX’s ultra small footprint with incredible adjustability, making it the clear choice in your hunt for the podium. The all aluminum case is incredibly small, yet able to disperse heat without the use of a fan. The External Capacitor with remote wires increases capacity over 5 times from the previous design, to better handle the rigors racing with today’s high power motors, and to reduce the size of the ESC case for easier installation.

Quality craftsmanship, superior materials and a commitment to rigorous testing are at the heart of Viper R/C Solutions’ product philosophy, so your VST motor not only gets you running, but keeps delivering the power you need to get the most out of your RC car in even the most demanding conditions. The VST series motors feature high precision ball bearings for superior performance, longer life and a re-buildable design. A precision machined 6061 T6 billet aluminum ribbed can is designed to provide the best protection and cooling, while the ultra low resistance, high current soldering tab system provides trouble free connections and easy wiring. Viper R/C Solutions’ VST series sensored brushless motors offer smooth and efficient performance, durability, versatility and quality.

The EZ Link is the same size as a credit card, and is used for tuning the speed control while at the track without the need for a computer. The innovative V-Port on the VTX speed control allows for programmability without removing the speed control wire from the receiver. This means less wear over time and you never have to dig into your receiver to make an adjustment. All these features are complimented by Viper's industry leading manufacturers warranty for peace of mind.

Viper R/C VTX10-BE "Black Edition" ESC & VST8.5 Brushless Motor Combo w/EZ Link (8.5T)
VERY HAPPY with this combo. Eventually. The ESC especially is outstanding. The EZ Link allows changes in profiles on the track as you go without a computer and has options for days. It is extremely smooth. Even without a fan it always ran cold (120). The motor I am very happy with now, but it is a little strange. I think they rate them differently than most companies. It seems to be a turn slow compared to other motors I have used. I was finally able to get it to make all the jumps I was looking for, but it requires gearing it "to the moon". The motor runs absolutely ICE COLD however and this hasn't been a problem, but you can save yourself some money on buying stacks of pinions if you get one turn faster than usual.
