I had one. It caught on fire and did considerable damage to everything connected to it. The only other person using one in our club had the BEC fail and crash his Goblin. So far we are at 100% failure rate in my club.

On one system, I use the Scorpion gov. with an Xera 4035-400kv at 1450rpm.

The imperative feature of the 130HV Commander Opto are the large capacitors. They are able to reduce direct currents more efficiently than other ESC's I have incorporated in my birds.

I can see how well that works right here.

This ESC BS is getting to be a nightmare. There's nothing that's safe or sacred about running a 48 volt power system. I'm not sure that Caps will actually reduce direct currents but their primary purpose is to smooth out power delivery of DC Current which certainly looks like the case in GScott's photo. They smoothed it right out to the point of flames.

Scorpion may be able to make motors but they are rank amateurs when it comes to speed controls.

Just something to point out I don't think it is the answer to all the issues we are seeing. But it seems alot of the failures are combinations of agressive delta wound motors, using the Vbar governor with a compatible ESC.

In the case of the Vbar/ scorpion esc combo i noticed there is a discrepency in the setup of the vbar documentation and the scorpion documentation with the esc.

The Vbar documentatin recommends:
"Settings at the VBar governor:

- Throttle min -100% / max +100%
- Governor gain 40%
- Collective add 40%
- Cyclic add 15%
- Collective dynamic 15%"

The scorpion documentation has the Collective dynamic at 0%

After experiencing a shutdown with a 4525-520 le, scorpion esc/vbar combo. I have switched to a 4525-520 optimum, scorpion esc/ vbar combo and have lowered the Collective dynamic to 0%. So far no issues as of yet.

Scorpion 4525 ultimate and scorpion 130 opto esc
Guys this combo works very well together. I'm also using the scorpion gov which is performing very well. My p gain is 10 and I gain is 8.

The question is how many people had a ESC fire when using Vbar gov and how many using only the scorpion gov. Some people were saying about settings that overwork the speed controller.
