Just getting back into flying again after about ten years and I've been paying a lot of attention to the classified section, especially regarding motors and ESCs. Seems to be a ton of used ESCs being listed here and on other sites. More so than motors or anything else. What is it about ESCs that cause so much turnover? Are they high wear items that people just what to get out of before they fail?

More like low wear items that never fail and get tossed in the trash.

So true. Just tossed a perfectly good Talon 90. Way too big and overweight. Cool while ago with the bigger bec, but only 6s. Hated that thing...seemed to always go in shutdown because over amped all the time.

I think that's why Align stopped using them on the 550's. If they didn't over gear their helis so much it would have worked fine though!

60% of the time, it works every time!

OK I could not help myself. All the ESC are up for sale because Elec helis are dead. Nitro has made Elec obsolete. Just kidding all.

Just my two cents...with the new esc coming out, most want the latest and greatest. While there’s nothing wrong with, however, why get rid of a esc that working properly for a newer model, I don’t understand that. I have Kosmik 160 and 200 in my Diabolo and Triabolo, also Align 130 hv in my Compass 6hvu, HW 120 in my Diabolo 550 and Devil 380....they work, true I would love to upgrade to the Tribunis for the intergration with the Vcontrol but it’s not a need. Just my two cents...

Bingo. I think this is the main reason people are switching ESC's.

Since you already have a KOSMIK, adding a TelMe Mikado would give you telemetry information from the KOSMIK without the need to switch ESCs. Additionally, the TelMe very easy to install without any configuration parameters to set. I'm using a Futaba TelMe with my KOSMIK.
