This is the Castle Creations Phoenix Edge HV 160 Speed Control for use with 700 or 800 class helicopters, or giant scale airplanes. The HV 160 handles up to 160-amps of continuous current and can be used with up to 12S LiPo battery packs.
With the debut of the Phoenix Edge series of ESCs the next evolution in
speed controller technology has arrived. The Edge series introduces a
user programmable auxiliary wire capable of functions modelers have only
dreamed of, until now. The white auxiliary wire can be used for
helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an
audible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, act as an RPM output for
3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock
(coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included) or as a receiver arming
lock. Combined with the data logging capability the Edge series of
controllers offer, users can enjoy unparalleled versatility.

*RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 160 amps for the duration of a single
10,000 mAh battery pack with the ESC in contact with a 5 mph airflow of
25C (77F) or cooler air. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C
(212F). Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage components
and may shorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current draw
at full-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease the
ESC’s operating temperature.
