Not on a Warp 360, but I'm currently using that Align 45A ESC (RCE-BL45X) in my Gaui X3 and it is a decent ESC for the money. I happen to be using the matching 460MX (1800kv) motor and a Gens Ace 6S 40C 1400mah LiPo. The X3 has KST215mg cyclic, and KST515MG tail running at 6V through the ESC's internal BEC without any issue. I'm using the soft start and that works nicely too. I like the fact that you program it with your transmitter so you can change stuff at the field without a program card or pc. It's not that you really need to play with the settings, but during heli set-up it's helpful. I'm pretty happy overall with it.

I only have 2 complaints:
1) the positioning of the caps makes it higher that it needs to be and on my X3 which has a really tight canopy, it's a PITA ... should fit fine on the Warp 360 though;
2) I have not been able to find any documentation on how the built in governor works anywhere. Forum posts I've read on it say to avoid Align ESC's built in governor so I am not using that feature. If you don't have any intention on using the governor, it's not an issue.

As for the Warp 360, I will getting one (airframe, motor 1320kv, blades combo) soon, but I am planning on using a CC Edge 50 lite (I have not used it personally but it's pretty popular in the forums for both the Warp and X3). Depending on how that goes, I may eventually change the X3's ESC to the Edge 50 Lite as well and move the Align ESC to my 3S heli (Belt CP).

If you plan to use a governor, don't get it as you will need to get another ESC or add an external governor, in which case you are probably better off getting a YEP 60A (even less expensive, but have not tried it personally), or a CC Edge 50 lite. If you will not use the Align ESC's built in governor, it is a decent choice.
