This is the speed controller our team guys here at Thumbs Designs run and recommend for Carisma GTB , LC Racing EMB-1 , Losi Mini-8 and Mini-8T + other 1/14th scale range
The controller will power Senorless or Sensor based motors of both 2 pole or 4 pole design.
We have tested the speed controller with the range of Carisma 24mm motors, LC Racing 28mm motor, Leopard LBP2435, LBA2435 and LBP2838 motors and this awesome little controller has performed faultlessly.
This 60 amp unit is more than capable of powering all the motors that we sell from the 4500 kv right up to the 6600kv and it barely gets warm (even without the fan attached) so there’s no need to worry about this controller reaching thermal cut out like many of the less powerful controllers do, there’s nothing worse when you are on your best run of the day and your old underspec’d speedo cries enough on your last lap and shuts down! This 60 amp unit will make sure that doesn’t happen.
In fact we have even tested this controller in a 1/10th scale 2wd off-road car running a 7.5 turn motor and again it performed faultlessly, so this little chap can even multi task. (we recommend you run a fan at all times for 1/10th application)
It also benefits from coming with all the wires pre-soldered, you just need to cut the wires to length, add your connectors of choice and your done.
With it’s small size it is nice fit into the Carisma GTB, Carisma GT14b + Pro, Carisma Mk2 + Mk3, LC Racing 1/14th scale off-road cars including the EMB-1 , Losi Mini-8 and Losi Mini-8T. Of course the controller will fit other models as well but these are the cars we have personally tested it in.
Without the fan fitted the controller even fits under the top deck of the Carisma GTB with no modifications.
