Electronic Speed Controllers and Motor Turns?
So I blew my Duratrax Streak ESC (forward only, 12+ turn limit) tonight. I've had it for a few years, and parts of it are starting to melt. I have a Trinity Pro Kobal 13T double motor.
I'm looking to get a new ESC, preferably one with reverse and low, to no motor limit. I don't need anything too crazy. I'm looking at the Associated A.I. Automatic Bullet Reversible ESC. It has forward/reverse/brake and no motor limit for $90 at Tower Hobbies. Has anyone heard anything about it, and how it's supposed to be?
I've also forgotten some of my knowledge about these electric motors and the turns. Lower turns = faster but shorter battery life... higher turns = slower but more torque and longer life? how would a stock (27T) motor be compared to my 13T double? and can someone explain the single, double, triple, etc?
