    I have been using the 1060 brushed ESCs on all sorts of batteries for several years now. I have about 10 of them and they all work very well.

    I have two Mtronics on one burned out (yeah, fire and smoke on the water). The Mtroniks has a slight advantage being it will run the motor with the prop barely moving to to point where the boat does not even move. The 1060 has a great slow speed where one can still watch the prop turn.

    To me the 1060 has a big price advantage, last time I looked it was almost half the price (here in the U.S.) of the Mtroniks and that was comparing a 1060 60A versus a Mtroniks 20A.

    I'm completely sold on the Quickrun 1060's.

    Did a little looking around and a guy on model boat mayhem said heโ€™s used the QuicRun 1060 with sla batteries. Donโ€™t know if heโ€™s referring to 12 or 6 volt. I just looked at the specs and the 1060 is good for 5-9 nimh. The cutoff halves the output when available battery power falls below 4.5 volts and absolute shutoff is at 4 volts, so I would think a good 6 volt SLA would be fine.

    Rowen - True, I don't know why I said the voltage would be doubled, brain fade I think!

    The instructions only mention LiPo and NiMH as the jumpers are used for setting the low voltage cut-off for each type.

    Does the hobbywing esc support sla or lifepo batteries. As that's all I use.
    Cheers Colin.

    The BEC Rx input sockets are in parallel not series.

    All sounds good.

    Whilst I'm using HobbyWing ESCs in my own builds I did buy a ready built Club 500 with a brushed motor and Viper Marine ESC which was working Ok initially but after being tipped upside down a couple of times during racing I have an intermittent fault where the throttle and steering are reversed! Not the ESCs fault as it got wet but time to change for a Quicrun I think.

    Received my Quicrun 1060s this morning from Modelsport in Yorkshire. They gave the most competitive price and only took 2 days to arrive.
    I have spent the afternoon fitting them after cutting one of the red wires. I have 8 channels working and so far so good!

    Thanks for all your help and advice.

    Ps When taking out the old Vipermarines I found I had in fact disconnected one of the red wires, so it couldn't have been that problem

    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure?

    I use Wheelspin Models for my HobbyWing Quicrun ESCs.

    With ESCs the term not safe for LiPos, as I understand it, just means that a safe lower limit cut-off for LiPos can't be set. Volts are volts whatever the battery type! A separate low level battery warning unit could be used. Having said that I only use ESCs (mainly HobbyWing Quicrun and Seaking where you can set the low-level cut-off dependent on the battery type.

    As far as the BEC goes you should cut one of the red wires otherwise the voltage will be doubled and the receiver won't like that! ๐Ÿค•

    Errol the Feral, found him the backyard as a kitten. Took months to get him to trust me enough to get him to the vet, fixed and in the house. Heโ€™s standing watch in that pic, making sure the rabbits in the neighborhood arenโ€™t up to somethingโ€ฆ
