    as you stated, just because it is listed and ships from Amazon it does not mean it is not a knock off. The quality may or not be good but if it is inferior you can send it back to them

    I also ordered Hobbywing 1060's from Amazon (two of them).

    A while back I ordered a set of "Futaba" servos on Amazon but they were knock off. (I did send a notice to Amazon and Futaba about trademark violations, but got no answers.) Funny though, all of the servos worked fine and were actually quieter!

    Just checked Amazon they have the QuicRun 1060 for 21.99 with free shipping, and it’s legit as it ships from Hobbywing North America. There ARE a lot of knock offs and clones out there, but as long as it’s coming from Hobbywing it’s the real deal. The ones I’ve bought from Amazon are legitimate, not clones.

    That's a good price but after delivery the cost jumps up

    I'm online right now looking for two Hobbywing 1060 Brushed ESCs. After our model meet today I stopped by our local hobby shop and found they raised the price $(US)5 from $21.99 to $26.99.

    So now I am searching Amazon, Ebay, etc. and have found a number of "knock-offs" for a few dollars cheaper and in some cases even more expensive. Hobbywing's MSRP is $(US)21.99.

    So, the word is "caution" when buying these even when the ad says "Hobbywing". Check the photo.

    Upper left (Fake)😠: The Ebay ad says"320A RC Car Hobbywing QuicRun 1060 60A Brushed ESC Electronic Speed Controller". The signal wire are plugged into the esc (on the real one they are hardwired.

    Lower left (Fake)😠: Walmart online "Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 Brushed Esc Waterproof / Speed Control 1/10 Cars / Trucks R8D7". Look at the cooling fins (heatsink) the run perpendicular to the real ones. Even some of the power wires are different in color.

    Right (Real)😊: From the Hobbywing web site.

    This is only two instances that I noticed.

    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 he’s used the QuicRun 1060 with sla batteries. Don’t know if he’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.
