ZTW 45A ESC With 5A SBEC

works excellent on my 450 clone. I have the Gov. set and 10% power on startup with auto timing. spools up smooth and holds 80% rpm consistently. no surprises, just plain works.

Not happy

I purchased this 45A and 65A Mantis. From stop/zero throttle, both of these will start softly for a moment, then jump to the throttle setting I have set. I have the programming card and have tried every option to stop this. I have tried a AR7350, AR610, AR636A, Lemon Stabilizer+, and a few others. I have used a Park 450, Aerodrive Sk3, Freewing Stinger 4S Edf, and several other motors. 4S and 3S. I have tried various trims, and calibrated many many times. All these combinations still result in a rather jarring jump in RPM from start. Once the motor is turning, its fine and linear. This is a common complaint on RCGroups with ZTW. I wish I had chosen a different brand. I think using these will damage my motor mounts over time. I dont think it will hurt the motor though.

ZTW Mantis 45AESC with 5A SBEC

Just installed the Mantis in my small P-47 . Haven't flown the plane yet. The ESC was easy to install & program. Cost of the ESC was reasonable. Arrived in 3 days. Excellent service from MotionRC! Will continue to order from them.
