The all new Trident electronic speed controller with its triple driver profiles is literally 3 ESC's in 1.

Set the ESC to run in either, forward, brake and double tap reverse, forward and brake or forward and instant reverse.    

By using the latest miniture processors we are now able to offer True Torque motor management, which until now has only been possible on large industrial sized controllers.
True Torque accurately controls motor current which virtually eliminates motor saturation and protects your motor and battery against dangerous currents, even in a full motor stall situation.
Motor life is also extended due to lower brush wear.

LED running lights set under each side of the low profile heatsink give a red glow when in operation.

A fully 100% waterproof design offers peace of mind when running your model in wet conditions.

The XT-12 is compatible with all brushed 540 series motors down to and including 12 turn.

Very good. Good order time from modelsports. I haven't got it yet but it will be good. But just wanted to say how good the price was and how helpful Modelports are at the sale desk

Great light weight esc. Only reason not giving it 5 stars is that the receiver wire could be a bit longer.

lovely ESC to run with, barely gets hot and the red LED running lights look awesome when going along. it's a doddle to select modes and set up. Only bad point is that it does become a pain when your cars the other side of the track, when battery is low the ESC just judders the motor and makes it impossible to drive. But apart from that all is good.

A great ESC for the money. Simple and quick to set up. So good I bought a second one for my sons truck. Why spend more when this has all you need for some inexpensive and reliable fun.

A stylish and compact ESC that is easy to install and set up, it has a nice selection of features that make it suitable for the casual racer and basher alike. We had a bit of a reliability issue with the first one we received, but Modelsport replaced it promptly with no hassle, and the one we have now seems to be holding up nicely. Only real gripe is that the battery and motor wires are rather stiff, with a cheap and nasty feel to them. Other than that, this seems to be a well-designed unit.

Really like this ESC. I find having the manual calibration is so much better than the auto set-up model. Good brakes and reverse kicks in when asked.
