Tempest Speed Controllers are designed to work in perfect harmony with Tempest Brushless motors, providing reliable operation with a smooth linear throttle response.   These speed controllers will also work extremely well with virtually every other brand of brushless motor.  These new ESC’s feature an STM 32-Bit Micro-Controller Unit (MCU), an integrated 3-phase gate driver and high-quality MOSFET Power Transistors.

All Tempest Speed Controllers come with built-in BEC circuits to provide power to the radio receiver and servos in your model.  The smallest 6-Amp model has a Linear BEC providing 5.0 volts at up to 1.5 amps.  The rest of the Tempest Speed Controllers, from the 15-Amp 4-Cell up through the 120-Amp 8-Cell model, all have Switching BEC Circuits providing 5.5 volts, with outputs ranging from 2 amps to 8 amps, depending on the model.

 

Tempest Speed Controller Features

  • 32-Bit ARM MCU offers small size, light weight and high-speed operation
  • High-resolution signal input offers smooth and linear throttle response
  • Throttle signal loss protection prevents fly-aways by reducing throttle
  • Auto-Calibration of throttle endpoints gives full range of throttle operation
  • High level of compatibility that works with most brands of brushless motors
  • Integrated BEC circuits provide reliable power to radio receiver and servos
  • Adjustable Over-Temperature protection reduces motor power if ESC gets too hot
  • Locked-Rotor Protection shuts down the ESC if the prop is blocked while throttle is applied
  • Synchronous Rectification and Regenerative Braking offer high efficiency operation
  • Wide range of adjustable parameters, 14 in total, to suit many different types of motors
  • Easy ESC programming is available with Full-Featured Programming Card
