ZTW Gecko 85A ESC with 8A SBEC - ZTW4085201
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.

After about 20 flights it would screech and quit when I hit the throttle from all the way down. Now it only makes noise. Somebody said I have to re program or something. Never had to do that before. I ordered a HobbyWing. They have always been good for me.
I bought this ESC to replace my stock Predator 70 Ah ESC from FSM, included with my FMS 3000mm FOX. I had several motor failures when launching the glider from hand and I thought it could be the motor. I bought a new motor first but after several flights the problem started again so I decided to buy a new ESC, this one. Also I bought a new but different motor (4258 460 KV instead of the stock 4258 550KV). So I tried new combo and I felt it is not as smooth as it was stock combination. Brake (even ad lowest force) is quite hard and emits a sound (nothing to worry about but could be felt as a failure). What I do like most is the size (small and compact) and alumminiun finish (very nice). I also bought programming card to connect it to a PC. It is quite easy to do the job with it but cannot program many features (it is quite basic). The only feature I used was voltaje choice (my stock Predatos had BEC fixed at 5V and now I increased it so servos work a little faster.
These are very good esc's for the money. I have Castle esc's and I think these equal the quality and preformance at a lower price point. I own two Gecko's. I highly recommended them
Put this in a Tower Hobbies Uproar with a Rimfire .32 and 4s 4500mah lipo. Works great and stays plenty cool. Great esc!!!
First one ordered gave me a lot of trouble. Motion R/C came to the rescue and replaced with new one, problem solve. Very impress with the programming capability.
Easy to set up. Excellent quality.
I use several ZTW Seal in my boats. Also have a few ZTW Gecko in airplanes. I love the programming options, smoothness, and cool running. I will keep buying ZTW.
Product preforms as advertised. Works great.
I have 2 of these now..........First summer for both........I only run them at 40 amps......Cannot tell how they do at their limit......certainly is the nicest appearing esc on the market.......Extremely fast to program....operation of the unit is super smooth........If they prove to be long lasting, I will vote for them ti be the best one out there......Paul
