SkyRC introduce the Toro SC120 Competition brushless speed controller. Designed for the use in 4WD short course trucks the speed is able to handle up to 4S LiPo set-ups, it features a 6V/3A linear BEC system and it works with sensored and sensorless motors. The case measures 57x38x35mm and it can be taken apart to replace the internal fan unit while the heavy-duty gold-plated solder towers allow the use even of very thick silicone wires. The on/off switch is of a dust-protected electric type and the controller is highly adjustable using 10 user-modifiable profiles that can be tweaked using an optional programming box or a PC interface.

During last week’s IFMAR Electric Buggy World Championships Team Associated showed us their upcoming Reedy competition brushless speed controller, internally called the black box. Designed for on-road and off-road use the yet nameless speedo is being tested mostly by Team Associated’s own Rick Hohwart and features an integrated on/off switch and an all aluminium case along sturdy direct solder tabs. The controller is designed with both stock and modified racers in mind and its software will have a secret feature called speed sensitive drake brake which they didn’t go into more detail about. The 1S to 2S compatible controller will include a programmer and is set for a release in December or January.

Yokomo introduce three new brushless speed controllers in the form of the BL-SP3, BL-RS3 +Turbo and the BL-Pro3 +Turbo. While the SP3 with its 8.5T motor limit is more of an intermediate level offering both the RS3 +Turbo and the Pro3 +Turbo are pure competition speedos. The latter two offer an aluminium heatsink case, they are widely adjustable using Yokomo’s optional programming box and it is understood that they offer both a zero timing and a turbo mode making them ideal for blinky, boosted and modified racing alike. All three speed controllers will become available in October and details on specifications and features will be available shortly.
