ZTW Gecko 65A ESC with 8A SBEC with XT-60 Connector - ZTW4065201

This ZTW Gecko series ESC is a high-quality, efficient brushless electronic speed control with an integrated switch-mode BEC. It can operate without the need for a separate receiver battery to power your servos and receivers saving you weight and simplifying your electronic connections. The Gecko series includes an aluminum heat sink body which is lightweight and helps dissipate heat more efficiently. The BEC on the Gecko has been specifically designed to support higher current applications to eliminate the possibility of unwanted shutdowns, and it is also capable of supporting simultaneous multiple servo operations typically found in large-scale airplanes and CCPM equipped large-scale 3D helicopters. If you are looking for a top of the line, full-featured ESC at a competitive price, the ZTW Gecko is the logical choice.

Features:

  • Data logging system such as temperature, voltage, current, and RPM
  • SBEC Voltage Output 5.0, 6.0, 7.4, and 8.4V
  • Advanced Governor Mode and soft start
  • High SBEC Current Output, continuous 8A and burst 16A, designed to meet your high current applications
  • Power arm protection, over-heat protection, low-voltage protection and lost-signal protection
  • Secondary sub-menu setting by the LCD program card or your PC
  • Super smooth and accurate throttle linearity
  • Support for most motors, including high RPM motors
  • Programmable motor timing
  • Utilizes new smaller MOSFET technology to minimize weight
  • Aluminum finned heat sink
  • Programmable throttle input range
  • Anti-spark circuitry (on HV OPTO models only)
  • ESC firmware and program settings can be updated via PC connection (USB adapter sold separately)

Includes:

  • ZTW 65A ESC with 8A SBEC
  • Pre-installed XT-60 Connector (power connector) and 3.5mm bullet (motor connector) for your convenience
  • Instruction Manual

Great ESC/BEC

This is my go to when upgrading a power system from 3s to 4s. I like the effective exposed to the air heat sink and the ease of programming with the available programming box or card. As long as you keep the watt consumption within the limits of the motor, this ESC will more than handle the situation. Often, when going to 4s, you will need to downsize the prop to keep the motor operating efficiently and not producing too much heat. Heat is lost motive force. The motor should land just slightly warm, ESC and battery also just slightly warm. Then you know that you are in the “power band” that is correct for your setup without getting into the weeds of Watts, Amps, and Volts.

This is no lounge lizard!

The ZTW “Gecko" ESC is a fantastic Speed Controller every bit as good as the Castle Creation “Talon” series with one exception. The 8 amp BEC alone is worth the upgrade price from the ZTW “Mantis” series. With todays digital servos driven by gyros one really need this power from the BEC. With the Gecko and its heatsink there is no need for a discrete (Add On) BEC. The throttle response is second to none, great for 3D work, hovering close to the ground! As this is a higher end product I wish MotionRC carried the ESC without the “T” connector. In this class of ESC we each have our own ideas as what is the best connector. Now ZWT has a major issue with the “Gecko” That is that when used with some (most) higher performance out runners it will loose commutation (timing) with fast throttle movements. ZTW has a great fix for this. But as ZTW doesn't think the issue common to their market base they leave it up to you the end user to upgrade to the new firmware. Unfortunately this means needing to buy the programing box. A lot of useful information on this can be found in the Hobby Squawk forums. http://www.hobbysquawk.com/forum/electronics-and-rc-accessories/electronic-speed-controls-escs-and-becs/2004-ztw-esc-problems
