    That's a beefy looking esc. Following with interest (having just spent a kidney on a couple LEMs).

    If Rory gives me the green light from his testing this week, they will be on sale for the first batch of preorders on Monday 19th February at a special introduction price of £400 each.

    A VESC6 is £300, a Vex Victor BB is about £450 and the closest 250A MGM controller is around £700 and only supports 15s instead of 18s. So I think its a very good price.

    Thank you

    Do you have any CAD files like step or others, for CAD construction?

    I have a model, but need to update it a little before sending it to people. Will clean it up and send it out tonight.

    Here is the link to the model as a step file. I can export it in other formats if people want it.

    I now have a Revolt 160 Short for testing (thanks maddox10) and an Etek on the way to use as a generator. Should be able to do some good testing up to 18s 300A and make sure nothing explodes.

    Its also a good opportunity to test its ability to drive large DC motors as an alternative to a Vex Victor BB. Which would mean you can switch between brushed and brushless with relative ease.

    With the experience in reprogramming smaller brushless ESC's for brushed applications, I forsee a golden future for the Euan 300A VESC.
    Some of us like the power of the inefficiënt, but dirt cheap Series Wound motors...
    And an ESC controlling a parallel wound motor has only 3 wires... I wonder...
