Default Losi Xcelorin 1/10 ESC

Is anyone here using this ESC? I would like to try as it is very cheap. I'd like to use it with an Orion 4800 Li-Po and an Orion Vortex 6,5 in a B4.

I dont much about them other than what I have read. I think that I would pony up and get the real deal esc (LRP, Novak, maybe Tekin or mamba if you want sensorless) thats my opinion. I dont care for sensorless though. But it sounds as though you have good equipment, so I wouldnt skimp on the esc

I already have a LRP TC for my TRF501X, but I wanted to know if the Losi is good enough, and if it can handle the Orion 4800 and Orion 6,5. If the Losi is good enough, I'll try that first because it is by far the cheapest.

I have seen it in action and its super fast and not getting hot. We have several Team Losi factory guys running it and its impressive.

Thank you, maybe I can try it then. I just want to try a non-LRP and non-Novak ESC, like the Losi or Speed Passion.

Locals here in Canada have good experiences with the sensored one running stock motors in 30 degrees celsius without even needng the fan. I'll be getting one once I start racing electric buggys.
