    Does ESC take as many volts as it needs?

    So I have a 12-volt 5-amp motor that I'm using for a ROV. I was just wondering if I could hook the motor up to a 20-volt battery and if the ESC would still be drawing the same volts or it would be feeding the ESC to many volts.

    There are 4 Skywalker 50A esc and 4 brushless motors connected to Pixhawk. They were working fine before the accident. Only physical damage was taken in the accident, no electronic burns or disconnections occurred. After fixing the physical problems, I connected an ESC plugs positive and...

    Max 8 ESC blinking power switch

    My Hobby wing max 8 ESC turned off on me while I was driving it. The power switch is just blinking red when I try to turn it on, not the ESC, and there’s nothing in the manual about it. It happened after I connected some lights. I already disconnected the lights and made sure all the connections...

    Traxxas X-maxx ESC problem won't power off

    My esc powers up when I plug in the batteries. I cannot shut it off unless I unplug the batteries. Also the center red light next to the V stays lit up. I have tried to run it and it only has little to no power. Any suggestions on what this might be? Thank you
