As far as I know, GM speedos in general are good, but complicated to adjust. There are several other micro ESC's to choose from. What about this:


Specification:
Voltage Input: 4-8 cells
On-Resistance: <0,001 Ohm
Recommended motor: > 9 Turns
B.E.C. Output Voltage: 6.0 V
B.E.C. Impulse current: 3.0 A
B.E.C. Constant current: 1.0 A
Case Size: 33x23x16mm
Weight: 22 g

They aren't that bad to adjust.

The main problem is the badly translated instructions.

From the manual

Turn the speed control on/off:

The speed control can be turned on using either the setup button (default setting) or automatically by connecting the speed control to a battery. This function can be set in the setup mode ”function”.
To turn off the speed control press the setup button for five seconds or push the throttle to the full-break position for five seconds. The latter function can be switched off.

There's also an optional external switch.

SX9 - VERY small and lightweight (makes a quantum look big!).

A friend has one - blew up the first one (had a problem with the cap and then it went), also found that the solder points were so small it was hard to get an iron any where near the wire without melting the case. Programming seems identical to the V12 (same instruction manual)

My SX9 just arrived and it is SOOO small. And yes it does make a Quantum look huge!!

I bought it so I could put it in my 12th scale, re-arrange all my elecronics and get the Personal Transponder and a receiver pack in there. COuldnt fit that stuff in neatly with the Cyclone!!!!!-Though I LOVE NOvak stuff. Just wish they'd make a micro ESC soon.
