At Flite Test, we gave a lot of thought about what makes a great ESC. It's pretty simple really but a couple of things were important to us: 

  • Pre-Soldered Connector: We took the liberty of adding an XT-60 connector to make it a simple a connection to your battery. 
  • Pre-Soldered 3.5mm Bullet Connectors: This makes attaching to our FT Radial Motors a breeze. We suggest using the FT 35A ESC with the Power Pack B and Power Pack C sized radial motors. 
  • 5v / 3amp BEC: We like a BEC on our speed controllers because it allows you to power lower voltage demand accessories without having a second battery on board.
  • Accessory Cable: Provides an easy connection to full battery voltage (2S to 4S) to power your accessories. Note: this is not a regulated power source! Full battery voltage is supplied at this connector.

Flite Test FT 35A ESC w/XT-60 Connector
I hate to say this, but these ESC's are overpriced, lacking in quality, and cost me 3 of my planes. I do not blame Flite Test for the utter lack of quality for these ESC's, I blame whoever manufactures them. On 3 separate occasions, I've had the BEC overload with only 3 servos connected, an ESC disconnect mid-air on a twin engine, and one overheat after 30 min of flight with only 25A being drawn at maximum.

My experience with them has been very frustrating, as I have bench tested them, and with a FT Radial with a 10x4.5 prop on 3s drawing 26A at max, the ESC will heat up past acceptable to 115 Degrees F, after running for 45 seconds. That's much too hot for an ESC which is supposed to be rated for 35A, and 40A at max burst.

I hate that my review would be filled with so much emotion, but I am extremely frustrated that these issues have come from what is touted as one of the most reliable sources for parts.

Flite Test FT 35A ESC w/XT-60 Connector
This esc is sweet! I've only used it with an emax LS2207 2300kv, works great on 4s, probably over-kill.

Flite Test FT 35A ESC w/XT-60 Connector
So far these have demonstrated themselves to be the most reliable low cost ESC's on the market for Foam-board airplanes We've flown.

having attempted to use about 4 alternate cheaper brand ESC's the flite Test ESC for only a little bit more $ runs COOLER, weighs significantly LESS and has been MORE reliable. Out of at least 10 planes, not a single one flying on the FT ESC's has had any issues at all.

It's really surprised me and I keep coming back to pickup more Flite-Test branded ESC's after trying several cheap alternatives and finding them all to be running too hot (or one that burned up in a crash) or having issues powering motors equivalent to the B pack and C pack sized motors with 10x5 props.

I DO personally suggest you use the optional UBEC to power you receiver if you have 4 or more servo's, although we've had no issues with powering 4 servo's with the ESC alone, it's harder on them to work to provide the voltage reduction and higher amperage of too many devices off the receiver, and a Ubec eliminates those concerns while also helping to provide clean stable power to your controls!
