R/c escs in Eskate?

Why do we not use these more?
I know Moe Stooge uses r/c escs in his builds.
If I don’t care about getting specs or logging rides,
why wouldn’t I go for these? http://www.castlecreations.com/en/phoenix-edge-hv-60-esc-010-0106-00
I don’t need over 50a per esc battery, what are the drawbacks?
If anyone has 12s esc recommendations, I’m all ears.
Ive had problems with almost every vesc I’ve owned. Just looking for something more bulletproof

Trampa VESC6?

Brakes are the biggest issue. That and lack of customisation and fine tuning.

Brakes on those are sharp and borderline dangerous for every day use

Not on the mamba xLx’s that moe uses. Those things have a surprisingly nice braking

This is not a car ESC, it is only for plane/helicopter.

Yeah nah, HobbyWing Max6 has awesome brakes that never stop working, unlike when you have regen braking.

@MoeStooge has had nothing but praise for the Mamba XLX brakes, and I’m sure @davidbonde will agree.

I (and many others) use these. Progressive acceleration and braking, bullet- and waterproof, heatsinked and includes a cooling fan, plus can handle 160A.

do you use lipo batteries exclusively with that ESC?

Used 8S LiPos before, I built 10S LiFePO4 for my latest iteration due to the voltage difference.

Next question, why not 12s car ESC?

My most powerfull build with 6374 motors.

ROXXY BL CONTROL 9120-12 OPTO

Yet, this ESC is prone to make fires…

I got no issue with them, for more than 2 years.

DavidC, what difference does it make?

the programming in current/acceleration is different.

For planes, their propellers don’t face any immediate drag/stall starting from 0 because the only drag is the air.

In a car, the wheels must overcome the weight of the car before they can move

Murdomeek, can’t that be adjusted with startup power?

not too sure of the specifics since I haven’t used one of those. Maybe ask in their forums?
