Hobbywing AXE 540L R2-FOC Waterproof Sensored Brushless Combo. Package includes 1400Kv 540L motor. 


  • Word's First FOC brushless system for Rock Crawler.  Field-Oriented Control for Super Linearity & High Torque & Extreme Silence.
  • The chip-type magnetic encoder inside the motor guarantees consistency between three phases’ signals and always outputs the pure and precise signals indicating the rotor position.
  • The waterproof and dust-proof design (*IP67 standards) allows the AXE brushless power system to be used in all weather & track conditions without any issue of damage caused to the system from water or dust. Damage to the vehicle caused by water, mud, or conditions should be monitored closely when running in muddy, wet, or adverse conditions.
  • Intelligent torque output & speed closed-loop control for easy control, and consistent motor RPM under all loads.
  • The adjustable drag brake & drag brake rate control with the maximum drag brake of up to 200% (that’s near twice the drag brake of standard brushless power systems) can provide unprecedented parking capacity on slopes, with no jerky stops.
  • The innovative built-in Wireless connectivity. allows users to read ESC data or update ESC firmware via a smartphone (installed with the HW LINK app).
  • The motor with 4 poles & 12 magnets, featuring Hobbywing’s “staggered pole” patent has zero cogging effect & torque ripple. It can work smoothly at low speeds. This greatly improves the manoeuvrability of rock crawlers at low speeds.
  • The sensor harness, which features the plug-and-screw design, has a silicone O ring inside. The design & O ring not only provide a firm connection between motor and ESC but solve the “waterproof” challenge for sensor ports.
  • The advanced and secure electronic switch features a waterproof, dust-proof, and shock-resistant design.
  • Multiple protections: low-voltage cutoff, thermal, fail-safe (throttle signal loss), motor lock-up, and overcurrent.

NOTE: Xerun AXE series is a closed-system. Due to its advanced technology, HOBBYWING Xerun AXE ESC works exclusively with Xerun AXE brushless motor.

Hobbywing AXE 540L R2-FOC Waterproof Sensored Brushless Combo w/1400Kv Motor
Picked this up at my LHS as an upgrade for the SCX10 iii Gladiator. So far I love everything about it, very easy to program with the built in Bluetooth. Drag brake is super solid, if your tires grip it will hold where ever you decide to park. The auto drive feature regulates speed over any obstacle, need more torque...no problem, it has loads on tap. The system is also dead silent but I cant hear much over the Gladiators "transmission click". I've been out performing the TRX4s that my friends run lately, only thing they have on me is straight line speed at the moment. Highly recommended
